It's possible to walk right into this cave in the heart of the quarry and on a hot day it is delightfully cool insider.

Part of a large complex of Greek roman and natural wonders Lovely way to spend a few hours This area offers great shade in the heat of the day

You can pop in here for a minute if you're walking through the adjacent gardens. Not much to see, other than some bats.

We hired Ms Eva Paola Greco as our guide. She gave us more historical insight that we would have otherwise missed. She was well worth it
