Grotte di Toirano, Toirano

4.6
#1 of 34 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).

  • We improvised a tour to the caves. Nothing planned and luck was on our side. No files and the guide dedicated to us. There were only 6. I would say this is the best time to visit them ... (I have often heard of waits of 30 minutes x entrance and large groups). The atmosphere is fascinating from the very beginning. The temperature inside reaches 16 degrees. Is obviously very wet. I would advise to those who suffer from pressure, heart and ... claustrophobia! An elderly lady who joined our group, the ending was collapsing. I found it a wonderful experience.

  • There are 4 or 5 years, every throne always beautiful to visit. The various "salt" differsicono from each other by type and colour and the tour is quite long. p.s.: the temperature is constant all year round, so if you go in the summer bring a sweatshirt!

  • The perfect time to visit the caves! Out cold and in standard 16 degrees, then not many groups given the season, so you appreciate this wonder even more. visit 1 hour within about 400 steps of up/down, all the way in, then I would say that caters to a large circle of people! Great guides who know how to keep up the interest without falling into monotony. Recommended!! And then the ticket gives entrance to the Museum in the Centre of Toirano.
