Spectacular caves found in 1971 that are 1.4 million years old. This is in the middle of "nowhere" but beautiful scenery. It reminds me of Carlsbad Caverns. We are Americans and the tour guide spoke English. She knew enough to recite the important information but not enough to ask questions. The tour lasted about an hour. There are no gift... More

The "Grotte de Frassassi" are not to be missed - it is a most extraordinary sight and truly one of the wonders of the world. The caves are at about 14C so have a long sleeves top with you and closed toe shoes. You can't take pictures (with or without flash) in the caves but have the opportunity to have... More

They are really great, it worth the visit. They are well organized but the groups (due to the amount of tourists) are too big. They should put more attention on foreign customers.. they just didn't took care of them and gave explanations in english.

The entrance prices are not too cheap, but it is worth it. The tour is well organized and the buses to go to the caves as well. The place is surrounded by souvenir shops and bars/restaurants where you can eat the typical local food.

We were travelling for two weeks around Umbria and Tuscany, and this was one of the most beautiful places that we saw during our journey. The place was just amazing and so unique, and something very different from all the other caves I've seen before. The guided tour lasts around one hour and covers 1,5 kilometers of walking inside the... More

An amazing tour of some spectacular caves. My main recommendation would be to check the web for English speaking tours before you go otherwise you may wait for a while - and the waiting area is a bit tacky.

Found this really frustrating and hated it tbh. For copyright reasons (rubbish since taking a photo they can still say photos are for personal use only), they prohibit all photos inside the caves. It's not easy anyway to take photos in darkness without flash without a tripod, but the guides constantly follow people around looking for any sign of anyone... More

This was one of the highlights of our vacation in central Italy. We joined the guided tour in English, which was very interesting and far from boring. The ticket if not very cheap but the place is well worth the price.... it's so beautiful it doesn't ever look real! Shame though it's not allowed to take pics because of copyright... More

This is a unique cave in the middle of Marche's mountains. When you go inside the stalagtites and stalagmites you see are simply amazing!! In addition, what makes the tour so interesting is also the fact that you completely lose the sense of proportions as you have no point of reference inside the caves. My favourite bit is the candles'... More

Wonderful cave structure ( v good value for the €15.50 , discounts apply ) Buy your tickets from the ticket office building in the centre of the shops and note bus boarding time. They are not sold at the caves. The largest cavern in Europe at 290 m high !! Wonderful stalagmite and stalactite structures , very well organised tour.... More
