One of our spring outings was to a natural wonder within 100 miles of our home in Italy: Grotte di Pertosa-Auletta. Some friends of ours had recommended it as a good family trip, so we reserved a time with an English-speaking tour guide, packed a picnic lunch, and headed out for the day.
It was fairly cool underground, but not overly so; still, it was good we had jackets! Not only did we get to see some fantastic stalactites and stalagmites, but we also got to ride in a boat through a good-sized portion of the caves! Tobin especially liked that part and took a turn pulling us through on the ropes just like our tour guide was doing.
After our tour, we enjoyed a picnic lunch on the grounds and then headed home. A fun adventure for the whole family!
