We visited these fantastic Caves in the end of December..we have 3 children (4,7,9 years old) and, even if the tour lasts 70 minutes, they loved this place. Inside there are 16° C. The tour guide is really funny! Not suggested for people suffering claustrophobia.
This is a visit that should not be missed. These caves are amazing, they deserve a stop by Toirano. They left silent of how beautiful nature is.
You can get there by a bus from Borghetto SS train station, but there is only one bus...More

We are so glad we did this tour. The caves are quite amazing with bear bones dating back 27,000 years and human hand, foot and knee prints dating back over 12,000 years. The stalagmites and stalactites are massive and so incredibly old.

We went to visit the caves with our 5 year old boy partly to escape the heat. It’s a really great place to visit. There was a choice of English or Italian tours and we had a lovely, knowledgeable guide who spoke fluent English. Plus,...More

The guided tour (compulsory for obvious reasons) lasts about 70 minutes and is conducted in both Italian & English. The cave formations are incredible in their age, size and variety. The bones of bears dating back 24,000-27,000 ago, are mind boggling. Plus, on a very...More
Visited with my two teenagers ( nearly ) and it was great . €25 euros for one adult and two children. The tour was split into English speaking and Italian and the guide was great . It's about an hour or more long to walk...More
We were in Alassio for the weekend (30 min. drive) and came for a nice afternoon trip. You can access the cave only with a guided tour and luckily we arrived just in time for the one to leave (4 pm). I think it was...More
