Although the visit made up part of a package tour I did notice a sign near the entrance that stated only guided groups were allowed into the cave. The cave is a magnificent sight, with huge chambers of incredible stalactites, stalagmites and other rock formations....More

Alistrati is not a Greek landmark for sure. I recently discovered this mythical place. By the time you enter the cave, you fill like part of a fairy tale story. A 1000m, amazing walk through. Tour duration is 60 minutes. Adult ticket :8€.
