A well administered cave complex - a little bit of a tourist trap but not overbearing. The car park for the Grotte is 1½ kilometres down the road from the cave entrance. Parking is free and you have to buy your timed tickets here. Busses...More

The caves are just fabulous, no problems with photos, although the price of 18euros seems a little high once inside that is forgotten. After the short tunnel you turn a corner and nothing can really prepare you for the sheer vastness of the first cave....More

Wonderful, extensive unspoiled caves. Good guides. Only downside no photography. Not too cold (but we're from Scotland!)
