Grotte di Frasassi, Genga

(4.6/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
Discover the remarkable scale of Grotte di Frasassi on a guided tour of one of the most extensive underground cave systems in Europe. Discovered in 1971 by a group of local speleologists, this network of caverns is known worldwide for its impressive array of stalactites and stalagmites spread along about 1,500 m (3,000 ft) of accessible passages. Guided tours can take you inside massive chambers up to 240 m (780 ft) in height, with a huge range of rock formations and pools located along the routes open to visitors. The largest cave in this system is also one of the largest in Europe, known to locals as the "Cave of the Wind." The caves are open all year long, but do visit the official website to explore all tour options and available activities before you make the trip.

  • Fascinating. Nature is a show. The entrance costs 18 euros. Parking the car and they bring you with the shuttle. I recommend you get there first and then at 10 in the morning. The journey lasts 1.15 h and if you're lucky you can easily do the photos and you'll not be scolded by the Guide. It is important not to use flash. However it is a must if you go over there

  • A recommended place for a family outing and very educational for the child. The Majesty of nature that slowly built a wonderful work of art. We start in groups from the main car park where there are many souvenir shops and ticket vendors to eat something.

  • Great tourist attraction. Great guided tour. Beautiful area. Definitely go.
  • Amazing cave system but the ridiculous restrictions on photos are a joke. All types of photos are forbidden not just flash photography which would be expected. The restrictions are in place just to make you buy their photos which sucks.
  • Nice place to visit. Great management
  • Ok
  • A one-hour line for a ticket? I don't think so...
