A ticket to get into the cave costs EUR 6 for an adult. I rather advice to spend it on something else. The cave is not very spectacular, the guide only speaks italian and you're out in no time.

I am genuinely baffled by the positive reviews for this rip off 'attraction'. There are very few stalactites/stalagmites and they are very uninteresting and dirty-coloured. Our guide didn't speak any English so we had the experience of standing around underground in almost complete darkness with...More

I have been to the Grotta before and had an amazing trip. We went again with friends and I realised how much difference a good guide makes. We were rushed through, the guide spoke very little English and told us very little. Having been before...More
