These caves are the perfect attraction if you love nature, long walks and mountains. Ideal for a family trip, not really far away from town (a bit less than an hour).

Take the cable car or hike to get up there. They are impressive and the tour is very well guided and explained

It is physically challenging and of course people with disadvantages cannot fully enjoy the guided tour since there are a lot of stairs inside the cave. However, they can still ride the aerial tramway to reach the entrance... More
