Considered “show caves” for the beauty and accessibility, Grotte di Toirano displays a remarkable karst cave system. Spelunkers found the system in 1950, but they were beaten in time by prehistoric man who found it some 14000 years earlier, and by the cave bear, which left bones, paw prints, and scratches on the walls. The required tour guides speak multiple foreign languages. Wear sensible shoes for potentially slippery walking surfaces, as well as clothes appropriate for 16 C (60 F).

We were staying in Portofeno for a couple of days, and got a rainy day. The weather north of us was better, so we looked up something interesting to do and found Grotte di Toirano. It was a couple of ... more »
As caves go, this one is maybe not as spectacular as some but the human hand and footprints left in the mud some 25,000 years ago, as well as the cave bear boneyard, makes it worth the trip. Although ... more »
The caves are really beautiful and the guides did good explanations in the correct times. Really a great site !!! more »
Awesome geological feature, visit lasts approximately one hour. It is cold inside the mountain.
Nice cave, but our tour was delayed by almost 1 hour.

Well worth a trip, but be aware if you have a baby there is a lot of leg work as you will have to carry him or her 300m up a relatively steep path from the car park. The attraction is very much worth it both in variety, size and setting of mites, titles and columns. Combined with approximately 25,000 year old cave paintings, markings and human foot prints and 3m tall similarly aged bear remains; of is very thought provoking. Let down mildly by the scant cafe offering and the truly offensive servers. Do go. In all about 90 minutes.
Laura MazzaBeautiful caves. The guided tour provides an opportunity to learn a lot about this place and so interesting and fun. Even the kids have a lot of fun and the path is accessible without any major problems for them, too. Impressive prehistoric footprints fossilized in the cave. Not to be missed at the end of the tour (which lasts an hour or so) the peak sanctuary dating from the 15th century: very picturesque.
Giulio CavalliVery nice. Good guide that accompanies, not too intrusive and from true explanations along the way. Cute children's workshops at the end of the lap.
