  • carried out the full path inside the cave for a cost of € 15.00 per person. The caves are definitely worth a visit since things that creates the nature are very finer than those made by man pleasant even the slow browsing on a stretch of the cave Recommended

  • Saturday we made full visit to the caves of Pertosa-Auletta, you say? Are nothing short of spectacular! Visit booked by eleven o'clock in the morning and started right on time with the help Enzo: person must compliment because, not only did great as a guide, especially one sees that is a true fan of the place and looking d convey to tourists all conceivable information in addition to that you have to have respect for what nature has given us! The caves are amazing. Don't be put off by the entrance, I saw people who no longer wanted to get in but it was really a pity because only in some places you may tap the rocks, but otherwise the path is available to everyone (including the part by boat). The visit lasted about an hour and three quarters, was rich in information, details and curiosities that Enzo has left us. I absolutely recommend a visit to the caves, so worth it!

  • Cool place. Don't go it you don't like close in spaces
  • Very good and interesting and impressive, but would have been better with some English information
  • It is not the first time I go there and with time and changes there are also made positive and others less. The site is really interesting. Not easy for all the new entrance, but richer (for the first time I looked at the underground river waterfall) route was a nice experience. The granddaughter Sara remained enchants and fascinated; often ask me when we go to the caves (under 6 years). Beautiful also the experience to live on for a few seconds, without any light and then see her Grotto lit by a simple small flashlight: nature, with its movements and its mysteries, we dimension. An experience of life. Does not convince the timetables and pricing module for visits: natural resources are the heritage of all and services enrich the local economy. You can't oblige tourists 200/300 km radius at which become little comfy for the different types of proposals. Not enough to acquire new visitors, for its natural beauty; urge to enjoy the Nice even to those who discovered and conquered and want to enjoy it. The "local" emphasizes the good and attracts tourism.

  • Truly spectacular. Also are well maintained and equipped with modern lighting and security systems. You cannot photograph inside, except for short stretches. Sure, a little expensive tickets. It is best to book in order to choose the route and the schedule you prefer.

  • Beautiful experience. 2 hours of walk in the cool inside the Earth in a fantastic exploration and evocative. The boat ride is very personable and shades of colors that can be seen are wonderful. I didn't think there was a place so wild and fascinating
