Grotte di Stiffe, San Demetrio ne' Vestini

(4.3/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Accessible only by guided tour, Grotte di Stiffe is a complex of caves formed by centuries of dripping and flowing water. Listen to the murmur of the streams that pass through the caves, wander past stalactites and stalagmites, and inspect the results of erosion and corrosion over time in the complex rock formations. Be prepared for a long walk with lots of steps. Even if it is warm outside, don’t forget to bring an extra layer, as the caves remain at a constant 10 C (50 F) year-round. Due to unpredictable weather conditions between November and April, it is advisable to call ahead during this period to assure that tours are available.

  • My husband and I visited the Stiffe grottos in late August. My husband, not from Abruzzo, who visited these caves for the first time remained speechless. Are really nice. We went inside the caves with a guide who gave us lots of information and explanations. The Stiffe grottos are a must see.

  • Beautiful caves that run along a route followed by a river. Winter and summer temperature of 10° so bring a jacket, humidity is truly remarkable. Generally are not as spectacular as other caves, like the caves of frasassi. But the sympathy of the guides is remarkable. The round trip takes about 40 minutes.

  • The Stiffe caves in the province of L'Aquila are beautiful caves only with guided tour of approximately 70 minutes. The entrance is reached within a few minutes by shuttle bus takes you from the parking lot further downstream where obviously you can comfortably Park your car and make tickets because ticket office is next to the car park and not at the entrance of the caves. The visit is interesting through various special rooms from quiet room to room 25 meters high waterfall. The internal temperature is about 10 degrees so if you want to bring something to cover you. For lovers of Canyoning appointment you can experience in the cave itself. All information is available at the ticket office.
