Arrived at the grotto at 11.30 with two small children. The landing area was already full to bursting with other tourists. Total scrum to buy tickets to get in and then waiting for 30 minutes to climb the stairs to access the cave. Once inside...More

We went by boot, but you can also go by car if you don’t mind the 600 steps down and up. The cave is amongst the most amazing caves I have ever seen. We went off season (may) and it was a bit to crowded...More

It's €13 per adult to visit the caves and it is a guided tour where commentary is presented in Italian and English. I actually really enjoyed the tour! Our guide was clear and offered interesting facts about the cave throughout. We made sure we were...More
