Grotte di Toirano, Toirano
Categories: Caves, Nature & Parks
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).

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 ... read more »

The tour takes about 45 minutes, the tour guide who followed us in this beautiful walk has cheered with great cordiality (in addition to professionalism) an hour's walk. The route is not very suitable for young children as in some places, there are some stairs where careful attention. Strictly not allowed then the buggies. As regards the content of the caves, just admire photographs taken (strictly no flash) and please, do not touch with your hands these wonderful creations of nature. For cold, consider a sweater to combat moisture. Large car park in front of the entrance to the caves. From the top you can admire the panorama of the Valley.show original

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.
Paolo CanaveseGreat place for the natural beauty of the formations, including some truly unique worldwide and-most importantly-for the fingerprints of feet and knees, mud balls thrown at the walls and traces of the torches left by prehistoric man thousands of years ago.show original
