It was really a amazing thing to see. I think the price is a little bit to high (€15,50) and the tour guide was a little bit to cranky. But the Grotto was really nice to see.

We went on the 11.35 English language tour led by a charming young woman. The pace was just right and we were fortunate that our group was small so we really had time to look at everything in detail. There are quite a few steps and it's cool and damp. It was an unforgettable couple of hours. I can't find... More

I was in Marche region for my Italian holidays and we decided to visit those natural caves suggested by a friend of mine. A 1h queue to have tickets was something we didn't plan for, but the visit was superb. Everything you see in the 1h30m walk inside the cave is fantastic. Guide was good enough to explain the history... More

One of the most spectacular sequences of limestone caves in Europe. Incredible stalactite and stalagmite formations, of varying sizes and hues. There is a shuttle bus to the caves and ticket purchase office at the large parking area near Genga. We went on the first tour of the day at 9.30am, which was in Italian, as I speak the language....

Experiencing the caves was amazing! Only downside was the English language tours don't start until 11.35. Train station at Genga is just around the corner from the ticket office for those arriving by public transport

The caves deserve their reputation and the (2 hours) long guided visit is well done, so they are worth it even if they may seem pricy. If you do not speak italian ask to be tagged on an english guide. You are taken to the caves by shuttle bus, there is plenty of parking and places to eat near the... More

Aside from the rather tacky souvenir area, the Grotte are amazing!!! We loved seeing all the crazy stalactites, stalagmites, and other formations, as well as hearing about the discovery and history of the caves. It is foolish in the cave and a sweatshirt or jacket is a must. There are tours in Italian and English for sure, maybe others as... More

It is impossible to describe the moment you enter the caves and truly feel like you are in another magical world. The tour is very well organised and lasts about two hours from the bus pick up to the drop back. The guides divide you into groups depending on your language preference and so the groups vary in size. Take... More

Probably the most beautiful caves i have ever visited and this is not only because of its size. Our Tour took in Total almost two Hours and was worth every minute. Unfortunately it is not allowed to take pictures

The caves are really breathtaking for their size and beauty. The visit is very well organised and will take around three hours. If possible book in advance through internet in order to avoid waiting. Temperature in the caves is around 14 Celsius. Better be prepared with a jacket.
