  • Maybe my expectations were way too high ... we really desire to breathe some air of Christmas, but it wasn't our case. 6 adults and 3 children of different ages and for them it was not the best. Unfortunately the expectations weigh too much on the logistics of the day (time entry cave cave entrance 16.45 18.00 planned actual time, hourly photo with Santa Claus 18.35!!!) and it ends up being too tired and badly laid out to enjoy the rest. Plus the price of the train we thought was definitely exaggerated (Yes, even the baby of 20 months paid) ... I mean, maybe it's not for us ...

  • We arranged a tour during the days of the feast of the Immaculate Conception. You need to book well in advance because the places for access to the cave fills up quickly. It's all super organized: we travelled on trains all day with the day ticket, so the car stayed in the parking lot close to Ornavasso. Is it easy to find place for lunches or restaurants to taste typical dishes. Our children (6-7 years) blast: città dei balocchi, theatrical show with animation, reindeer and many animals to see and the Grotto with Santa Claus. At the end of the day there was also time for a Skate on the ice rink equipped in the town square. Worth it!

  • I've seen a reading with music of the Divine Comedy ... super uau. with projections on the marble walls of the cave. Definitely shows an edge. fixed degrees and humidity 8 ball, so dress well, although their damage the helmet to enter.
