This cave is a must when in the region. It is the only cave with a flowing river which is accessible for visitors in Italy. We were very lucky to get a private and very informative tour since we were the only visitors during the...More

Today (17th of Nov 2018) we visited the ticket center and the lady working there explained to us that cave's closed for maintenance until further notice (probably at least until spring) - so call before you go to the cave :)

These caves were really pretty, but the tour was quite short and was only conducted in Italian. We were disappointed that (as many popular attractions in the West are) they did not provide multi lingual devices for the tour.

All in Italian, but could pick up some words and the caves speak for themselves. Today it was certainly a relief from the 42 oC heat!

The caves are truly astonishing. Definitely worth a visit. We visited the caves in April and were almost the only turists there. Definitely not overrun. But be aware that the guides will leave for Siesta.

This was a great way to spend a little time in the region. Beautiful, underground scenery. We've been in caves all over the world, this had the largest waterfalls we've ever seen underground. The tour is only in Italian, but surprisingly, our guide was able...More

I've been in caves in many places in the world. I haven't enjoyed any more than I have Grotte di Stiffe. There are other caves with more spectacular stalagtites, stalagmites, curtains, columns, etc. The things that make Grotte di Stiffe so great are 1) it...More
