You could fit the Duomo inside the main 'room', and it would be pale in comparison to the gorgeous subterranean formations. Mind blowing.

These caves are enormous and so well set up that almost anyone can access them. Although you feel like you are underground you are actually just in the mountain side. They have been set up really well and our guide was very informative without any...More

We took the blue speleo tour and it was truly spectacular. The entire experience was amazing from the knowledgeable tour guides to the path they took us thru. Not inexpensive but worth the experience.

It was enchanting and challenging (we took the red speleo tour). It was definitely one of a kind adventure very well organized and executed. Our guides were knowledgeable, passionate and also patient. Totally recommended!

Yes. There are lots of steps but they are quite easy. Not suitable for a person with walking problem.
