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

Amazing caves in the heart of Le Marche. Tickets are pricey (15 Euro/adult, 12 Euro/child), but well worth it. My sons (9 and 6) were in awe. Note that tickets are sold in the parking lot, far from the entrance (1500 meters, I think), but you can take the free shuttle bus to and from the caves. Bring a sweater... More

One of the biggest caves in Europe, this stunning cave which was discovered in 1971, is made accessible to almost everyone. With a constant temperature of 14 degrees inside, jackets come real handy, so don't forget them along with a good pair of shoes as there are stairs to climb. We really enjoyed the tour, just wish we had more... More

We really enjoyed our visit to the caves. We arrived and just missed one tour so we had some time to wander the shops and the small cafes. Food and Service was excellent. The visit to the caves was a wonderful and beautiful experience.

These are among the most beautiful caves in Italy. They did a great job in making them accessible to everybody. I went with a very old uncle of mine and he was able to enjoy the whole tour. They also put very suggestive lights to highlight the cave's beauties.

The caves themselves are fascinating. We have been to caves further south in Italy and also in France but this was still a worthwhile experience. The organisation was excellent. Frassasi is well signposted off the Rome-Ancona highway. The parking lot is large and free. We looked for the ticket office and one of the staff guided us personally and explained... More

Had heard good reports about the caves and so we decided to visit them. Fantastic experience, park the car at the free car park and then buy your time stamped tickets. The shops and food stalls were interesting while waiting for the free bus service to the caves themselves. They gave us an English tour and the guide was knowledgeable... More

I was impressed by visit to this amazing place! These caves are unbelievably beautiful. By the way, it was not cold inside, it seems that it was even warmer than outside. We read that most tourists who visit this attraction are Italians, and it was so true - we were the only ones who were listening to Russian audioguide. The... More
