This is really worth a visit when you are in Le marche. It looks very touristic when you arrive al the parking place and see the stores at the central area but it isn't. You have to be à little patient to get your tickets (app. €15) but after that à bus brings you to the caves. Be aware that... More

Visited with 2 friends and though is interesting you don't get a real chance to enjoy the sights as you're constantly being herded from section to section. Also the guide of the group behind kept bringing her group right up to our group as our guide explained what we could see do then had to contend with the noise they... More

Make sure you pack something warm. There is only 14 degrees inside the Grotte in summer and winter. It is worth going and being amazed at something that was discovered only 40 years ago but has some majestic and breath taking creations made over millions of years! A definite must see.

It is so impressive! You can see amazing stalactites and stalacmites. The height make you feel so small and you can really lose your sense for the sizes there.

I didn't realize this is the tallest cave in the world. Stunning. Also a great escape from a hot Italian summer day =)

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
