Grotte di Toirano, Toirano

4.6
#1 of 13 in Nature in Liguria
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).

    Convenience of access, clean, and 1000 glimpses from observing and photographing. There are huge cavities but touching and admiring all the various changes of rock strata. Maintenance is very accurate, the guides (heads or tails) courteous and helpful. Water-proof and non-slip shoes

    the place is easy to get to, right off the highway signs are frequent and clearly visible. sl site and received information are clear and more that meet the free parking is ample, there is no lack of facilities as a small museum, then more than use consumption bar-restaurant and public toilets are excellent organization, the guided tour not too long or too short, nature's spectacle is worth the ticket price. brilliant driving, knew how to capture attention without being too verbose scientific aspects. the underground route takes approximately one hour, the view in every corner or room is breathtaking. highly recommended.

  • 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.
