I was visiting friends near here(about an hour away) and since most things are closed this time of year in Italy, we decided to check out the caves. There isn't much tourist traffic so the tour was conducted only in Italian(my friends speak Italian so I had a personal translator!), during the summer the tour is available in English. You'll...

As per my title, I thought the caves were amazing and really vast (they themselves deserve at least 4* if not 5*), but unfortunately, that's where it ends. There're set times that you can go and you show up at the designated spot to take a bus the 1.5km to the caves. From that point on, you're tied to going... More

We came to the caves in October 2013 and did the Blue Speleo tour. Most visitors to the caves do the regular guided walk-through tour in in large groups. You stay on concrete pathways with guardrails and see a lot of wonderful things, but the blue and red Speleo tours do this and more. They take small groups off the... More

We stopped at this site on a bike tour - so interesting, and the guide was great - and they have done a terrific job with the stairs and pathways in this cave.

I have seen several touristic underground caves but this is on top on my list for now. A kilometer or so before (or after depending what direction you come from) is a parking with the ticketoffice. There's also a lot of little shops selling the well known souvenirs. (Tip voor de Nederlanders, rechtsachterin is een etensstandje gerunt door een alleraardigste... More

This sight is one that must be seen if you are in the area. If you are within an hour or two from it, the drive is worth it. Our tour guide was a bit too soft spoken for our group but she was full of knowledge. Regardless, the caves are spectacular and impressive.

We were in the area on a rainy weekend afternoon in early October 2013 and decided to visit the caves of Frasassi. For the price of 15,50 Euros (or 13,50 Euros if you are a student) you receive a voucher for the shuttle bus (which takes you to the caves and back), entry to the caves with a guided tour,... More

We have seen cave systems before but nothing on this scale. This tour takes you by bus from the car park up to the entrance in the hills. There you enter the caves in groups, shivering as the temperature is a damp 14 degrees all the year round. The guide then takes you on a 1.5 km walk along metal... More
