  • Visit with a coupon, but turned out to be a beautiful private visit there were 5. We thank the highly-trained Charon Michele who ferried us with a boat to visit the underground river. The engine were his arms that moved on ropes overhead. Amazing place kind of a science fiction movie set between stalactites and stalagmites of every size. The large main hall (23 metres high). Photographs are prohibited (OK only in the pond). Take the full tour to not miss the spectacle of nature in spring waterfall.

  • I visited the caves in the past, but my last visit was fantastic. There were very few 4 people and we could watch calmly and under the supervision of Judah all wonders. The route chosen was to complete with length of visit of about an hour and a half. The place is a true spectacle of nature will be back again!

  • I visited the caves in the company of my girl just yesterday, albeit with a slight delay, the Lady at the ticket office and Vito guide welcomed us with smiles. Your Vito, drove us all the way by showing us the beauty of the caves, of which two boat routes. Excellent initiatives from the staff, lovely place, courtesy and friendliness. some deserved 5 stars! Reasonable prices. To come back again and again, perhaps to make the path speleologico!!
