  • Beautiful views and spectacular scenarios you will discover in this cave. The "unknow"river allowed us to have a boat trip into the cave. It was a nice experience for adults and children...

  • Impressive cave system, very well equipped and amazing guide Luciano. Definitely worth the trip if you are in Cilento. Remember to bring a sweater! Temperature in the cave is ~15C!

  • Half day visit to beautiful caves with waterfall and river. Great place to take the family with friendly staff. Take a jacket as the temperature can drop to around 16°C. English audio sets available. Toilet facilities and a small cafe shop on site. Note: I bought a large lave owl for 5€. The next day I saw the same owl in Pompeii which cost 15€. Really fair prices at this location.
  • Beautiful place for a 2 hours relaxed visit. The only issue is that the visit group is crowded and it's easy to miss parts of the briefing due to the noise. They don't provide a helmet... they should.
