I highly recommend visiting the salt mine for both the charm and the experience. The punctual driver is very nice and accompanied us to the queue for our tour in Italian and provided us with the newly arrived tickets. At the exit he was waiting for us to take us directly to the house. The experience of the mine was very interactive and also quite lively during all the 800 steps that went down to reach 135 meters underground.

Salt mine to see absolutely Guide in perfect French During the trip handed a bottle of water and a snack Perfect with tickets booked in advance because there are a lot of people
