Situated in the heart of the Apuan Alps’ Park, in an uncontaminated area of extremely high landscape and geomorphological value, the Grotta del Vento presents different unique aspects.
It is definitely, amongst the Italian show caves, the most complete under a morphological and evolutionary profile, since its itineraries allow the direct observation of every aspect of a deep karst environment (fossilized or occasionally active vadose tunnels, phreatic tunnels still subjected to occasional flooding during particularly heavy rainfall and areas permanently abandoned by water where shiny limestone formations of every type and colour are still growing).
It is the only one to offer the possibility of choosing between three touristic underground itineraries, one of which (3rd itinerary) has the longest duration in Italy.
It is one of the few that is open all year round (except the 25th December), allowing the public to take a trip “outdoors” even if it’s raining or snowing outside. An ideal destination for singles, couples, families, school trips and organized tours, rallies etc.
With opening times extended throughout the day it is the only cave that guarantees tours at least 8 times a day in low season and at least 14 times during Summer and the Christmas holidays.
The possibility to choose between different types of visits, makes it an ideal destination for excursions for singles, couples, families, schools, groups and motor bike or classic car rallies, etc.
