I intend to visit the Castellana Grotte in Apulia. I would like to know from any travellers who have been here if the descent to the caves which is described a 'nerve wrecking' is really that bad as I suffer from Claustrophobia
Cave visits and "claustrophobia" are like water and fire. It depends on how bad your claustrophobia is. Did you have a look at some pictures and video's of these caves?
