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

They also offer visits geared towards spelunkers. We took the walking tour. Be advised there were a LOT of school groups from as f far away as Reggio Calabria. They were with their own guides so were not a problem. You buy a ticket for a specific time and are taken by bus to the cave. About an hour tour... More

Not to be missed! Well organized and an amazing experience. The caves are hundreds of thousands of years old and were only discovered in 1971. Beautiful and awe-inspiring. Ask for the English audio guide and take your time. It's an unforgettable experience.

It all seems a bit plain and boring as you enter Frasassi, near Ancona in Italy. The temperature is a constant 14 degrees, and the atmosphere feels remarkably dry. Suddenly you are in the biggest, most breathtaking space, bigger than the famous Duomo in Milan. From the main cave, you journey along a designated path, through wondrous spaces, majestic, silent,...

We really enjoyed the trip, once in a lifetime opportunity to see such a spectacular natural site. Regarding English tours, we were given audio translators in exchange for ID (no extra cost) which were great. Be warned there are quite a few stairs and about 2km of walking + the temp inside is about 12 degrees cel. Overall a great... More

We got slightly lost travelling from a small town in Tuscany. As we approached the Grotte at 4.55pm we assumed we'd be too late for the tour. But they allowed us on and what an amazing experience. Whilst we were all tired, the caves are something to behold. Highly recommended for everyone (although I'm sure we're all about to have... More

It was like entering a secret underground world, seen nothing like it before. Granted it was quiet and out of season when we visited (I can imagine it would be a bit like a cattle market in the high season), from the very pleasant and chatty girl (Italian but with perfect English) in the ticket office to the imformative guide...

A spectacular cave, the tourist trail is very suitable for all abilities, except no wheel chair/buggy access. But kids can easily navigate, we went with a 4,6 and 7 year old. Well worth the visit BUT the staff need to be much more polite and informative. Especially at the ticket office. I rang ahead to ask if needed to prebook... More

Waited almost 2 hours, only to hear that the next tour in English would take another 45 minutes wait. We gave up... disappointed
