We unknowingly bought a tour of the Grotto at the top of the entrance thinking you had to to be able to swim there, but you don’t. The whole tour was in Italian, of course, and it was not different to any other grotto/limestone cave...More

English was not our guide's strong point, but she did a decent job explaining the background. Interesting to see the rock formations and former levels of guano, and see all the dates of people who had cleaned it up! We didn't do the boat trip,...More

We stopped here on the way to Castro. Our guide didn’t speak English, but they helpfully gave us a translation to look at. Worth a visit and certainly is cool inside.

A ticket to get into the cave costs EUR 6 for an adult. I rather advice to spend it on something else. The cave is not very spectacular, the guide only speaks italian and you're out in no time.

If you do like caves, this is a big cave and you get to go close to the stalagmites and stalactites. And our guide was charming and had good English. But we had to wait around for the tour to start, and then as a...More

There is great parking and good access to the cave although there are a lot of steps. The guide was informative and the group was small enough for you to hear and see the points of interest. There was a particularly unusual wall daubed with...More
