I imagine that the majority of people visit the show caves on days when rain has stopped play. Don’t be put off by the tourist tat at the car park and proceed to the caves after buying your ticket. If you can get an English...More

Beautiful drive. We missed the English tour and hence had to join the Italian tour. We did not understand a word (I would check the times for the different tours.) Nevertheless, we really enjoyed the caves. They were huge and beautiful. Once done, we decided...More

Really outstanding and beautiful caves, probably not well known. Long queue but quite organised system to get in. The caves are beautiful and big, probably the best I have ever seen. Definitely recommend for families with children. Guided tours in Italian, German and English. Lots...More

This was one of the places that I loved more in Le Marche. The guide tour was very nice and inside the grotte is really beautiful!

Amazing cave both in terms of size and the stalactites. I have never seen anything close to this. Do go out of your way to go there. We just went there and ordered the 18€ tickets. It seemed like a good choice. We tried to...More

We had never heard of them before and came across them by accident. The tour required some waiting and cost 18 Euro per person, so we weren't sure if it was worth it. .... but once we entered the first chamber, we were blown away....More

We took a trip to the caves from Umbertide. It took about 1.5 hours to drive but very straight forward. There is a big car park free of charge where you leave you car as you get to the caves via a bus. You purchase...More

Yes. There are lots of steps but they are quite easy. Not suitable for a person with walking problem.
