Grotte di Stiffe, San Demetrio ne' Vestini

4.3
#2 of 80 in Parks in Abruzzo
Cave Nature / Park
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.

  • Yet another carsic cave. Really very nice cave. It's a good experience.
  • The Grotto is a lovely guided tour through the areas ancient caves, and provides an easy, yet educational and gorgeous, introduction to caves.
  • The caves can be visited with a guide that gives you all the information. The path is suitable for everyone, very affordable. Is an active cave, which is crossed by a river today. Spectacular double waterfall in particular. The surrounding area is beautiful. There is a parking area below with bars and green area equipped for picnic and barbecue, and a shuttle bus at the entrance of the caves, then nothing is missing for a pleasant excursion in the nature of Abruzzo.

  • Worth a visit, but remember to buy the ticket before you get to the caves, there is a signposted to the ticket office. The Stiffe grottos created thanks to the patient work of excavation of a river, are a pleasant place to visit. The pleasant walk inside you will discover the path the river unceasingly performs for thousands of years. Beautiful also the view you can enjoy from near the entrance to the cave. Photos can be done only on certain days defaults, calls for information first.

  • Visit to the caves and lunch. Comfortable huts with tables and barbecues in the vicinity to organize barbecues with friends and family; so much green space, clean and organized, with bathroom and bar.
