Day trip from Milan: cave paintings in the enchanting Val Camonica

This tour will let you visit the oldest Italian archaeological park, the Naquane Park. This enchanting historical site enhances one of the most important rock complexes with prehistoric and protohistoric engravings of the Camonica Valley (104 large rocks). In 1979 it was the first Italian site on the Unesco list! You will spend about 2 hours and half with your private guide, wandering around. After this thrilling visit, you will move to Bienno. Medieval village and splendid example of a Roman settlement, every year Bienno is a tourist destination for thousands of people: walking through its alleys means taking a step back in time, savoring simple life away from the hustle and bustle of cities and reliving the atmosphere of ancient crafts. A stop for lunch is included during the day. ( at your own expense )

We visited on a sunny hot autumn day, with only 1 other visitor in the whole place, so we enjoyed a peaceful wander through these ancient glades, with wild flowers and butterflies all around. The inscribed rocks and easily located, and there are helpful drawings on the signs. We exited via the top of the park, and strolled back down to Capo di Ponte

Had the privilege of being guided through the park by Alberto Maretta. He has just completed the mapping of Rock 12 which contains more than 1700 images. There is also the famous Berolina Map which perhaps maps the fields below the rock in ancient times; however the discovery of a nearby "map" which does not overlook anything may undermine this interpretation. Its a fascinating park. There is a lot to see here if you are very interested - at least half a day maybe a full day's visit.

We visited this site only because the national site in the town is closed on Mondays. That was a happy accident and entry to this site is free so that was a bonus. We stayed for 4.5 hours and didn't manage to see everything. The site is compact and well maintained. One of our party walks with difficulty but managed to access almost all the major rocks. We just didn't attempt the walk up to the famous 'map' rock.When we visited the ground was strewn with sweet chestnuts. There is a small picnic area and you get great views of the valley and mountains. Before visiting the carvings in situ it was helpful to us to visit a building which housed an exhibition of plaster cast impressions of some of the petroglyphs/carvings although the interpretative boards were only in Italian which limited the usefulness for us. (Also in this building is a family room). Fortunately all the boards in the park itself are in both italian and English and are very useful in both locating the carvings on the rocks and understanding their context. And there are a lot of carvings. The place is stuffed with them. Not just on the big rocks which have interpretative boards. Part of the fun for me was finding carvings that were not part of the tourist trail. Just kneel down in front of a rock and look at a picture made by someone who kneeled in the same spot a few thousand years ago.

We spent two days in Seradina and Bedolina and will definitely return. The setting was spectacular, with amazing views.

good access with car, parking is next to local cemetery and walk a few hundred meters. Drawings are well marked and next to each is a written explanation (the route is marked with brown road signs).
