We went to visit the Castellana caves and we took the “long” 3 kilometer visit including the white cave. It was a very special experience really something beautiful to see. With the long 3 kilometer tour you walk first one hour in the caves to...More

I have never visited caves/grottos like this before, so we found it quite amazing. We did the short tour, which was more than sufficient, and gives you a good sense of the cave system, the history, the geology of the grotto, and there is certainly...More

Fascinating experience, especially if you are able to take the longer tour to the last alabaster cave. Probably less exciting and dramatic if you only do the shorter one. The short tour which takes about an hour goes about half way into the series of...More

Interesting caves though they are in no way exceptional ..not a patch on, say, the 4 caverns at Castleton in Derbyshire (UK) or the Salt mines in Cracow. Such a shame that some of the stalactites have been damaged by vandals, nevertheless there are many...More

Personally, I was surprised with the number of excellent reviews this sight has received. We have visited caverns around the world, and found this particular one underwhelming. First, the guide was bored which made the tour boring. Secondly, other than the height of the “rooms”,...More

Amazing cave and amazing guides in English. It is a somewhat difficult walk for anyone with balance issues, claustrophobia or physical disabilities. Thankfully the os an elevator for exiting. The caverns are visually mind-boggling. They are wet and slippery yet worth double the price of...More

I strongly recommend getting to their website first and checking the timetable of Italian only or English speaking tours. This will also help you minimise waiting time between the groups. There are two types of guided tours, each offered in English or Italian, at different...More

Visiting caves is not the first thing somebody thinks of when visiting Puglia, but a friend recommended that we visited them and it was a great discovery! Try going as early as possible (visits start at 9:00 AM) because it gets quite crowded later on....More
