Discover the remarkable scale of Grotte di Frasassi on a guided tour of one of the most extensive underground cave systems in Europe. Discovered in 1971 by a group of local speleologists, this network of caverns is known worldwide for its impressive array of stalactites and stalagmites spread along about 1,500 m (3,000 ft) of accessible passages. Guided tours can take you inside massive chambers up to 240 m (780 ft) in height, with a huge range of rock formations and pools located along the routes open to visitors. The largest cave in this system is also one of the largest in Europe, known to locals as the "Cave of the Wind." The caves are open all year long, but do visit the official website to explore all tour options and available activities before you make the trip.

Grotte di Frasassi reviews
Wow just wow , to listen to how many millions of years it took to grow,, just wow and well worth a visit probably the strangest emotion ever more »

In one word: superb! Very beautiful cave with multiple breath taking 'rooms'. We had a good guide, which is always important. And I believe the others are good as well (we heared them talking to their group). Highly recommended! If you believe this review is useful, then please 'like' it.
The visit to the caves is well organized from beginning to end. It starts from the car park, which is spacious and free of charge. At the queue for the ticket the guides begin to give the first useful information. 10 minutes before the entrance that is indicated on the ticket you meet at the departure of the shuttle that leads to the entrance of the caves. The same shuttle will take you back to the car park at the end of the visit. The visit lasts more than an hour, about 1 hour and a half. You can visit the first 5 rooms that are lit. The other 2 are in the dark and accessible with a special visit. The caves are a wonderful spectacle of nature. To see!
