The Grotta del Vento

Situated in the centre of the Apuan Alps’ Nature park, it is one of the most complete caves in Europe!

The Grotta del Vento is in the north of Tuscany, in Garfagnana, in the centre of the Apuan Alps Park, in an area rich in spectacular and interesting karst phenomena. Here the weather conditions have constantly dug, carved and modelled the limestone rock, creating impressive natural sculptures, such as the Panie Massif, the enormous arch of Monte Forato or the stone waterfalls and crevices of the Vetricia Plateau.
Run by a company made up exclusively of speleologists, it offers visitors ample guarantees regarding the validity and accuracy of the information.
