We have been in several caves all over the world, but we were gobsmacked by the beauty of the Castellana caves. The white cave especially was a surprise. The English tour was good and we heard a lot of information. It is well worth visiting...More

It was like fairy tale. I felt myself like Indiana Jones- searching treasures in the caves. Grotte di Castellana is one of the must see things in the Puglia.

This place is absolutely amazing. The guide was good even if she was too fast in my opinion. It got easily crowded with all the tourists, but would still recommend to go and take the long tour. The almost 2 hrs felt like 20 min.

I have been on a few cavern tours in my time, but this one takes the biscuit! We only did the short tour (due to too much groaning from accompanying teenagers about the prospect of anything longer), but I'd have taken the longer tour if...More

Don't need hiking shoes. A lady on our tour had high heels- who goes in a cave with high heels on? We took the short tour-not worth it (read our review).
