We had a fantastic day with our guide, Luca from Association Truvatura. A one of a kind experience. We never felt at risk with his able help. The scenery was magnificent

Get there early and walk trough the cold river with water shoes. Pay 1.50 euro for the stairs wich is easliy to do. It gets very crowdy in the course of the morning. We spend around 2 ours there wich was fine.

In 2017 it was 3€ for the public entrance, and 13€ for the elevator entrance (in this case there is also a little walk along the park). Anyway at the end you will arrive at the same point.

it would be much colder for sure and have no ide if itll be open for tourist as its an enclosed closure. maybe cause of lack of tourists it would not be open try to phone or e mail before to avoid dissapointment.
