Basic info

Situated in the centre of the Apuan Alps' Natural Park, this is one of the most complete European caves, presenting an extraordinary variety of phenomena which are outlined with competence and precision by expert guides.

Following illuminated and easy-going trails, we can admire the many wonders of the underground world: from shining stalactites and stalagmites to polychrome flowstone, alabaster draperies, crystal-brimmed lakes, underground water-courses and bizarre forms of erosion.

There are three itineraries: the "first" (one hour) proceeds horizontally and is characterized throughout by splendid calcareous formations; the "second" (two hours), which also includes the first, visits a small underground river and its charmingly vast environment; the "third" (three hours) consents a complete visit of the cave and easily follows several perfectly vertical tracts.
