  • We visited the cave by booking well in advance. If you send us an email for info, the answer is unresponsive ... you have to call. The confirmation email is not sent. Aside from the bureaucracy, the visit is very interesting and allows you to discover information about Sicily in prehistoric times through these incisions.

  • On the (tiny) port of Levanzo leaves at 10:30 boats to reach the cave by the sea... it is far from mass tourism, since they contain only 6-8 people! The "trip" is a joy in itself (15'). Then access by a steep footpath to the cave. Small but impressive by the presence of 2 types of drawings dating from-12.000 and-8.000 years. It's pretty impressive! The french tour is a bit hasty given the language barrier, but we can see each drawing with explanations and this historic route remains breathtaking... go ahead as long as the cave is still open to the public! The rock paintings are contemporary Lascault...

  • A cave like that is worth seeing, great organization, I arrived at the cave along a walking trail, more than an hour, but everyone goes with the shuttle that book when you buy your ticket. Only and not to be missed

  • An easy boat ride from Trapani. The grotto holds very old paintings and stone carvings (into the walls of the cave). Our guide was very helpful. For the more fit, you can take the boat trip to the grotto in good weather and hike back to town. There is a nice beach close to the grotto as well.
  • €22.50 is totally worth the Range Rover trip through the backbone of the island, passing Miuccia Prada's latest residence. Once arrived a short walk takes you to the cave in question. Great history/commentary from the guide who is very knowledgeable. Can only speak for the Italian tour but I think they do offer English ones as well. Better check when these happen.
  • Nice
  • A visit to the cave of genovese cannot miss if you go to Levanso. And the Guide let us in was really good in the explanations. To this I add that even the walk to the cave has been a nice experience, with views of the coast and the other islands of Enchantment.

  • Archaeological site with paintings of the Neolithic and Paleolithic graffiti. You can reach by boat (sea conditions permitting) or by jeep. One of the few sites in the world! To see!
