Just a little south of Rome is a magnificent natural wonder in Falvaterra, Italy. This cave, the Natural Monument of Lazio, was discovered about 20 years ago and is open to the public in the summer months. While walking through the cave you can see deep blue waters, waterfalls, stalactites adorning the walls and ceilings, along with animals in their natural habitat. Truly breathtaking!
The town of Falvaterra is high up in the Ausoni Mountains with a panoramic view of Italy. The narrow streets, medieval castle, towers and monuments represent life in a small Italian town. The local church and monastery maintaned by the Passionist Fathers is open to the public and includes a museum with religious artifacts dating back to 500 AD.
Ceprano is the closest town with a sampling of hotels.

This is simple wonderful! Nature pure, an amazing cave!!! We did the three hours guided speleo tour and it was just fantastic!!! You need certain condition to do this and good balance... it is lots of fun!!!!!
We are a family of four (two kids: 15 and 17 years old) and we were all delighted!!!! We received the whole equipment: neoprene suit, helmet with light and shoes; you just need to bring your swimsuits, towel and clothes to change after the tour.
We did the Reservation through watsap, the numbers are in the webpage. Fast and simple.
Our guide took some pictures (we will receive them per email cause you won’t take nothing into the cave)
We drove from Terracine about one hour ... If you are in the area you can’t miss this tour!!!!!!

We had a wonderful time visiting grotte di falvaterra. There's a guided tour through the cave with a beautiful canyon and natural pools and little waterfalls within.
The tour is held in italian language, not easy to understand.
The cave is open to public on saturdays and sundays. When we gave them a phonecall in advance they offered us a tour on Tuesday, thanks a lot for that!!

Anybody visiting the south of Lazio should experience this. It is an incredible adventure through a breathtakingly beautiful cave system. I took along both my kids, 8 and 10, and it is something they will never forget.

Visited in January with my family. I have been in many caves but never one with a full on raging river running through it, complete with white water rapids!

The caves are run by volunteers so you have to make some allowances - the place looked closed when we turned up. After we found someone to assist us we then had to jump back in our cars and drive a few hundred meters down the hill to get close to the trail leading to the caves. The walk from the gates took about 10 mins with my 3yo.
Our guide was very passionate about the caves and seemed quite knowledgeable but spoke no English whatsoever so one of our party had to act as translator for the rest of us.
The access to and in the caves is first class, well lit smooth paths and metal walkways.

Our guide informed us that the caves give a different feel depending on the time of year - we came after heavy rain and the river was raging - you could hear the rapids from some way off and sense the power of it beneath you - he said that in summer it was much calmer.
The trail had a few smaller trails leading off it and the guide explained that you could walk down to beauty spots next to the river and picnic/bath in summer.
My wife and kids really enjoyed it and said it was the best cave they had ever been in. My friend AKA our translator said he would be returning to do a rafting experience that the guide had mentioned - apparently they do adult only tours deeper into the caves as well where you can walk up the river several hundred meters.
Cost was €4 per adult with kids going free - bargain.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour which was guided by Augusto. We were visiting Italy from Boston, Massachusetts (USA). Augusto was very knowledgeable and communicated well with us in English. The cave tour was a great thing to do in a short period of time. The walkway inside the cave felt safe and well constructed. It was amazing to experience this beautiful, natural wonder!!

The cave is accessible to both little children and disabled people. Temperature inside is about 14°C in the summer. Along a relatively short and easy trail you can see an incredible variety of impressive geological shapes and phenomena, led by Cristian, a competent and passionate guide, who knows each and every hidden corner better than anybody else since he took part to the excavations from 1995 until 2011, when the site was inaugurated and opened to the public. Better to contact the personnel on site in advance to coordinate your guided visit. Possible drawback to be verified - no English spoken.

When we arrived at a concrete building in the middle of nowhere to be offered iced tea and be told in almost non-existent English that the guide would be 30 minutes, we didn't realise this whole operation is run by volunteers from Falvaterra, passionate about their town and trying to build a socially responsible business. It was delightful to go from that hot place to the refreshing cool of the caves, and find they were kitted out with state of the art lighting and pathways. Elisa did a fab job of filling us in in great English on the history of the area, the mythology, and the remarkable discovery and exploration of the caves, and had us laughing plenty. €4/pp got us a personal guided tour of cathedral-like caves with some magnificent formations - if we were not going home we'd go back for the full on €30 pot holing exploration & boat ride.
