My husband, daughter and I visited the Roman caves last month. Total cost was a few euros though we weren't able to climb to the top caves (4 year old child and inappropriate footwear were to blame there). My daughter loved looking inside the caves. There is virtually no information available at the caves so in hindsight I would have... 更多
Really cool place you must visit it , very cheap be prepared to climb Best to wear trainers . Great views of matala bay . If u sit in restaurants in evening when it dark see how many faces you can pick out when u look at it ..
I've been in a lot of caves, including Pythagorus' Cave on Samos. Climbed here first time in 1997, and whenever in Matala -- 2009 was the last time. If one is new to this kind of experience, it might be a "wow". The view is the best part.
Although still very hot when we climbed up the caves, it was well worth it for an insight into a past history of the island. Tip - not for the unfit and those who are less strong on their feet
Our guide book said this was free, so we were disappointed to have to pay a 2 euro each charge and to be asked for the euro change as a tip. This was the first time we were ever asked for a tip in Crete, although waiters rely on tips and we generally tipped as generously as we could afford.... 更多
Well not very proud for what i am saying but i was not so impressed for this famous caves. Full of dirt, even though you pay to get to see them and make a photos, but anyway. I think the authorities should bother a bit and take care of this attractions.
The Caves in Matala are well worth a visit, situated adjacent to the main car park and flanking the beach, this monument has an entry charge of 2 Euro, however the accompanying leaflet is short on information, so a little internet research would help. The cliffs which shelter Matala, contain numerous caves (once a Roman Burial ground), which gained fame... 更多
Naive enough when I first saw the pictures I thought there were tunnels connecting the caves. In fact you need to do some serious climbing to some of them. If it was in UK I doubt it would ever be opened to public exploring freely. Go straight down to the left to see the biggest caves without much risk of... 更多
Don't go there when it is hot. If it is hot by the sea in the caves will be even more hotter!! All these caves are roughly the same so you explore one, then another and you get bored in the end. Of course it looks nice from the distance and it is interesting to have a look inside and... 更多
