What a huge cave and underground formation. Be careful when going down, the stairs is slippery, but you will have a magnificent view when you reach the bottom of the long stairs. The light which shines in from the top hole of the cave gives...More

The caves are incredible. The tour lasts about half an hour. There is enough lighting to help you navigate but it is slippery down there so be careful.

We took the long (2 hour) tour with an English speaking guide. The white room at the end of the walk is well worth a visit. Fantastic. I would not recommend to go during the high season. Too crowded.

We took the FSE train to Grotte di Castellana, remembering to alight at Grotte di Castellana, the second station rather than in the town of Castellana di Grotte. The latter would have required a long walk or additional transport. The FSE train in Bari Centrale...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).
