Create an itinerary including Caves of Diros
Explore the series of natural underground waterways at Caves of Diros, the source for many Palaeolithic and Neolithic artifacts now housed in a museum. Take a boat tour to access the tunnels of caves, dramatically lit from within. Traverse below the thousands of stalactites that hang from the domed caved roof as you wend your way through. Though a guide drives the boat, little commentary is offered, leaving room for silence and inspiration. Arrive early to avoid waiting in line, and note the attraction may not be for those who suffer from claustrophobia. To visit Caves of Diros on your trip to Diros, use our Diros holiday builder app.

  • Difficult to find with limited sign posting - got there to find no boats operating. Leave the place until it is fully operating

  • We were looking forward to these caves but were ultimately disappointed. There was a severe case of molt attached to the stalagmites and stalagtites and a urine smell was present in 2 different areas....  more

  • Amazing place but when we visited (31.3.2022) there was no boat available and we missed the best part. There should be a warning on the official page about it and not knowing it when you arrive there. Really disappointed about the management of this unique cave...
  • One of the best caves system in Europe.. make a phone call before you drive,do not even try to book online , just call them. They do maintenance work so the schedule is a puzzle..(July 2021)
