The cave experience was wonderful, but be prepared to climb many steps. Once the tour is done, there are 200 steps back up to the parking lot, so make sure you have comfortable shoes! Also, no photos are allowed, so don’t bother to bring a heavy camera. We also toured the Lipica stud farms. They let you pet the horses, unlike the tour in Vienna. There was also a show which our ticket did not cover. I don’t know if that would be an option for those interested, but it would extend your day by an hour or two.
