I love caves. This one is gorgeous. It is easy for older and younger alike. I had an eighty year old friend who made it with no problem. There are stairs and some places the floor is a little slippery. The cave is 54F/14C so you might want to bring a jacket. My kids really enjoyed it also.

Absolutely incredible ... seen other caves but nothing on this scale ... well worth a visit. Cost was very reasonable ... €31 for two of us for the basic tour but that also included parking and bus transfer to the grotto. Easy walking as the paths inside the grotto are very well built. There are some stairs but we weren't... More

If you are within an hour or 90 minute drive of the Grotte de Frasassi go see it. The caverns are spectacular. I felt as if I was in another world. The Grotte is fairly easy to find. You can purchase tickets online a day in advance. We learned this when we tried to by them online the day-of and... More

Wasn't too sure whether this would be worth a visit but how wrong could I be- once you accept the fact that the set up is very touristy and you can look beyond the scores of school parties and the tacky stalls at the bus stop in the car park where you are picked up from to reach the cave... More

This cavern is something not to be missed if you are in the area. Much like Carlsbad Caverns, only not deep underground - under a mountain instead. Impressive "rooms" with an excellent lighted path to explore. Tours in many languages. Highly recommended!

This is a must see when visiting the Marche area. The caves are set in a limestone mountain containing stalagmites and stalacites, some of which are up to seven stories high. There is quite a bit of walking and stair climbing. Do not be put off by the touristy feel of the place. The natural beauty of the caves is... More

Me and my girlfriend went to visit the caves in June 2015, and we had a lovely experience - the caves are quite amazing and stunning! We had a group guide who told some stories about the caves as we walked through them, but we lacked a bit of knowledge from her side (if you're a bit of a "rock-fan"... More
