Grotte di Toirano, Toirano

4.6
#1 of 13 in Nature in Liguria
Cave Nature / Park
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).

  • A few days ago we went to the caves of Toirano after reading good reviews for many visitors. Actually the caves are beautiful and worth the ticket €13 (€7 for boys under the age of 18 years). However, for me, the guide was not up to par. First of all on the site it says that the tour lasts 90 minutes while ours is also poor, duration one hour visit came "running". The Guide explained both in Italian and in English and probably to retrieve time spoke very fast (looked like a recorder!) and didn't even ask if we had any questions or curiosities. At a glance: caves, yoghurt, you hope, however, in a guide to par.

  • Slightly away from the beaches, when its 30 degrees it feels good to take the costs in these magnificent caves. Shame there was no visit in french. But despite this, the site just by him above all the last part as close as concretions. The bonus, the rest bear of 24,000 years.

  • Fascinating journey into a place that combines emotion and science. Coming from the motorway exit at Borghetto Santo Spirito and in 5 minutes, following directions, you get to stand. Get tickets for two adults and two children we paid €36-take a short climb to get to the beginning of the path where it waits for the Guide. The caves are wonderful, stretching over a distance of approximately 1300 meters with 400 steps, time flies in looking at the wonders of nature, in search for the footprints of prehistoric men and bears, in listening to the guide that, in our case, it was good, prepared and available. With us there was a group of Englishmen who followed us a short distance with a dedicated Guide: this to highlight the Organization of the place. At the end of the course you can visit the sanctuary of Santa Lucia in a cave site slightly further downstream. Recommend comfortable shoes and a sweater or a sweater cotton: the cave is cool but not cold as other. Experience not to be missed.

  • Really enjoyed the trip. Very interesting and the tour guide made it fun learning the facts about the cave. Worth while and cheap entry fee. They also have a cafe and picnic benches there with great views while you have a bite to eat.
  • A must see experience! Truly beautiful! It is a walking tour, some of it up hill, so definitely not for the faint of heart.
  • Unique formations. We had lots of confusion with where to go and when the tour starts... at one point we wanted to return tickets and leave, because we kept waiting and waiting without knowing what's going on. Hen a group of kids came along and we were put in the same tour with hem. So in the end it was all good
  • went with a school group/field trip. knowledgeable guide and beautiful caves. a gem a bit hidden but worth a visit.
  • english speaking guide. Very pesonal service.
