  • The guided tour, in this route partly on the water and partly on foot, leaves ecstatic. The eyes do not have time to steal a particular image and engaging, that immediately after something else exceptional catch you. Great appreciation to the whole organization, which leaves nothing to chance. We are back for the second time and I can confirm that the "magic" was the same... Nature can be WONDERFUL!

  • An unforgettable walk in the bowels of the earth with a beautiful landscape of stalactites and stalagmites, almost real on the story of the inhabitants of the bronze-age cave we were presented by the guide Luciano. Fabulously unforgettable! Thank you!
