  • From Speleological tourism enthusiasts in the cave we chose the adventure path (€50.00 each). Our guide was friendly and comprehensive, Mirko, and escorted us (we were the only two) on this particular excursion, which includes several steps "adventurous" between climbing, cableways and descended, more safely. A different way to experience the cave, less spectacular than others but still very nice. complemented by the path of approaching the site, with a nice uphill.

  • This little-known cave is a show of untouched nature. Very different from the caves of Frasassi, much less touristy, is definitely worth visiting. A forty-minute walk in the Woods brings you to the cave entrance, then a whole series of trails make you cross this wonder. The website is very well run and you will find all the necessary information for the various routes. Cost more than affordable, for 5 hours of driving we spent 20 euros each. Highly recommended!

  • Is a beautiful experience that of Monte Cucco: we arrive after a 1.8 km accompanied by Mirco Guide. Went down to the Cave, you are immersed in a place that seems to have stopped in a few million years ago, an uncontaminated excavated in the heart of the mountain. A visit with only a dozen hikers makes the walk more naturally and surely less commercial di Frasassi. Completed the trail in cave resurfaces in surface and descend the mountain for 3 km until you reach the parking lot of the takeoff hang gliders and paragliders. The whole thing lasts about 4 hours and is more impressive to do it with the departure of 20, at night. Normal experience.

  • very impressive Park with trails undemanding. with little effort the exciting views. You can see much of the Umbrian-marches Apennines up to the sibillini mountains. on a clear day you can see the Adriatic Sea. to visit the cave of Mount cucco very interesting from a geological point of view and in the history of Speleology.

  • The Monte Cucco is at the center of the Park. Coming from the driveway from Seal (PG), you can leave your car at the Pian dei Cavalli from where you continue on foot prior to a road and then along a path until you pass in front of the entrance of the cave of monte Cucco admission fee ( the Office is located on the ground floor of horses). From here you can climb to the top with a trail for only experienced hikers (EE) due to its exposure and slope. From the top in good weather you can enjoy a beautiful panorama in 360 degrees overlooking the Marches and Umbria. The descent from the Summit can be made by following the ridge that slopes down to the Pian dei Cavalli. The hike can be done all year round, snow permitting. At the end is a must a torta al testo (Umbrian cuisine dish) with ham from Tobia in Val di Ranco that can be reached by car from Pian dei Cavalli in minutes.
