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.

  • 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
  • A one-hour line for a ticket? I don't think so...
