  • 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

  • The cave is truly special and good help. Very nice boat's arrival, the climb from the cave is quite steep and so there is no need of good soles.

  • We were in Levanzo where booked to visit the grotta del Genovese. We reached the archaeological site by sea, enjoying a seascape definitely worthwhile. On reaching the Earth we perched along a path not too strenuous to the cave. There the Guide drove us to discover engravings, graffiti and cave drawings perfectly preserved, thanks to a temperature that is constant throughout the year and which is around 19° and Palaeolithic. Cave paintings, comparable to those of Altamira and the incisions to those of Camunni, represent men and women, deer, cattle, horses, fishes in a State of perfect preservation. The cave was used as a hunting lodge in which lurked ferrets and rabbits, was discovered in 1949 by a Florentine tourist curiosity-driven has introduced in this corner, bringing to light these wonders.

  • 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!
