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.

Grotte di Frasassi Reviews
Ho visitato queste grotte con la mia famiglia con due bimbi 8-10 anni. Più di un ora di coda per il biglietto quindi consiglio di acquistarlo prima on-line, poi il tutto è organizzato bene e veloce il... more »I visited the caves with my family with two children 8-10 years. More than one hour queue for the ticket so I recommend buying it online first, then everything is well organized and fast transportation and with a shuttle, arrived at the caves will accompany you a guide and will explain in detail all along the path that takes about 1:30, my kids had a blast and have not created any problem and have experienced the visit with great enthusiasm. At the end of the lap the shuttle will take you back to the large parking lot. Beautiful caves and visit very interesting thanks to the Guide really good.
Una delle cose più belle che abbia mai visto! Quando entri nella prima sala rimani senza fiato per la maestosità della grotta e di tutte le straordinarie formazioni che ti si aprono di fronte ... non ... more »One of the most beautiful things I've ever seen! When you enter the first room be breathless for the Majesty of the cave and all the great teams that will open in front of ... There are no words to make the beauty ... The route is well designed, easy to perform and our guide (David) very friendly and prepared. The organization is very good: free parking with shuttle that neatly and for several hours takes you directly to the entrance of the caves. The Museum is also included in the ticket (which we unfortunately we couldn't see). I bring a sweatshirt (and maybe even long pants for children) because the 14 degrees are all interiors. The only drawback that I would recommend to review the frequency of the different groups: thinning even just 15 min it would give peace of mind to all in order to fully appreciate the history and beauty of the caves.
Percorso ROSSO fantastico in cui bisogna strisciare, arrampicarsi e passare in cunicoli stretti in cui puoi avanzare solamente a carponi. Il tutto in uno spettacolare ambiente sottoterra realizzato da... more »Fantastic red path where you have to crawl, climb and jump into narrow passages where you can advance only on all fours. All in a spectacular underground environment created by nature. The staff will give you: jumpsuits, caps, helmets, boots and light harnesses. Brought from home of rubber gloves. Don't introduce yourself hands free because you will need to use your hands, hold onto and you will soil much. No description can make the idea of beauty and sense of adventure that the same path will give you. ABSOLUTELY NOT RECOMMENDED FOR PEOPLE WHO GET PANICKY OR CLAUSTROPHOBIC.
Great tourist attraction. Great guided tour. Beautiful area. Definitely go.
Loved this guided tour! Highly recommend!
Amazing Views inside this cave!!
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
