One of the greatest cave complexes of Europe

It was again my boyfriend's idea and I agreed more or less, it was raining that day. Still, we went there and it was completely worth it. It is the deepest cave space so far, more than 3 metres; some of the rooms are like in fairytales; you're not allowed to take photos but still..It is very well lighted and... More

The caves were just wonderful! Breathtaking! Both the adults and the kids loved it very much. The largest cave was just unbelievable in size. The guided tour was in Italian, but we were offered "a radio" with English translation. It wasn't as cold as I expected, a light jacket was enough. Good shoes are recommended, the walk through the caves... More

A must see if you are in the area, even worth to travel 100 km, you won't belive your eyes when you enter the main dome in the cave, just the sheer size.....Really a must visit!!

The caves are a marvellous spectacle but didn't find out anything about them as was not offered headsets for translation or help from the guide despite us letting him know we did not speak Italian! I know we are in Italy but would have been nice to have a written guide or headsets to tell us a little about the... More

The superlatives that are available to me just cannot... More

I knew before that this cave is gorgeus. But when I came inside, it blew of my mind! I would say it is worth its price, just ignore all the giftshops on the parking lot. They are selling things that have nothing in common with the cave itself (like rocks from different regions of the world). The big dissapointment was... More

We were totally amazed by this cave. We have never seen so many stagaltites or stalagmites . We would have given it a 5 but the waiting area is a bit grim and over commercial and then didn't allow photos supposedly for environmentlal reasons but then run a photo trip if you pay! However despite all that we forgave all... More

I have been through a few caves but these are very impressive - both the size and the features. They are still active so they are quite damp inside but the tour is all on walkways so easy enough (but quite a few steps). There is plenty of parking. The entry is 15.50€ for adults but you get a 90... More

I gasped when I entered the first immense room. Apparently the whole of Milan Cathedral can fit into this area, but proportions are skewed under ground as you have no external reference points. But these caves are spectacular and deserve a visit. The stalagmites and stalactites provide fodder for the imagination with their weird and wonderful formations and some alcoves... More

We found this cave through Tripadvisor and when we arrived to the parking spots of Frasassi, we thought we were caught in a tourist trap with shops of all kinds of useless souvenirs and bad food. It turned out this was far away from the truth. The caves themselves are incredibly impressive, especially the first cave. None of the pictures... More
