  • Levanzo, any tiny charming island in the West of Sicily, in the Egadi Islands... Apart from two small eateries on the port... the large big ballads in the mountain and the bathroom e sea fair magic, you can discover the cave prehistoric del Genovese... to access it is not complicated and very complicated both... As the Italy and Sicily in particular... Either by sea, or by a small road on the mountainside (attention to the hot sun, it hit severe and especially think about taking good shoes, flip-flops and other Beach avoid shoes :).) So when you choose your means of access... You will arrive in an unlikely place, in the middle of a cliff, there is a small flat shape or the entrance of the cave... The owner of the cave will meet you there... He a little french spoken and especially he made the effort to speak, a big thank you to him... It affublera you a helmet before going so you don't bump you everywhere... And you walk through the entrance of the cave by a hole of 80cm max (attention big.. :)))) In the cave, at the beginning you don't see anything, you don't understand anything... Already the specter of disappointment invades you... But as soon as the guide begins to turn on small spots and show you the drawings and other carvings in the walls of the cave, magic operates... and you people taken by the story and the beauty of the graffiti and other small sculptures that you discover... It's not very big, but it's very very impressive to say as there are thousands of years humans have lived here... Because you're exactly or you experienced men... This is not a facsimile at Lascaux, no this is the real autehntique... And I can tell you what after 5 minutes you chills... It's impressive... After 20 minutes the visit's over... We took a real lesson of history of humanity... not to be missed...

  • Amazing to see drawings (dated circa13 thousand years BC) and graffiti (about 8000 BC) so well preserved and so well illustrated by Christmas. I had never heard of this cave and when friends suggested a visit I accepted gladly. Good access by sea allowing breathtaking views. Minus the access trail that should be more polished Indeed was rained a lot at night and during the early hours of the day and routes on the downhill, it was very slippery. Thanks for the help.
