CASTELCIVITA CAVES

A SPECTACLE OF NATURE

From 1 July 2021 open every day

Grotte di Castelcivita

At the gates of Cilento National Park and the Vallo di Diano, in Salerno Province, the Castelcivita Caves are among the most extensive speleological wonders in all of southern Italy, stretching for nearly 4800 meters [3 miles]. This underground world of caverns lies between the banks of the Calore River and the southwestern slope of the Alburni Mountains. The mouth of the cave is 94 meters [1/2 mile] above sea level and immediately reveals a breath-taking scene of dark tunnels, wide spaces, and narrow but well-lit passages carved by nature after a millennia of natural erosion. Take a tour and see for yourself.

Tourist Tour
