Transfer service

Only upon reservation for groups of more than 20 people. The Grotta del Vento has stipulated an agreement with the company Biagiotti Bus, from Mologno, for a transfer service from Gallicano or the railway station Gallicano-Barga to the Grotta del Vento. This has been made necessery because the road Gallicano – Grotta del Vento does not permit the transit of buses over 11 metres in length and 3,50 metres in height. The time necessary for the transfer is 30/40 minutes, both ways.

If on the established days all the vehicles of this company are already engaged, it will be our pleasure to gives you the names of other companies, who however will apply their usual market rates, which can be significantly higher. In all cases the transaction will take place between the person in charge of the group and and the chosen transport company, without involving in any way the offices of the Grotta del Vento.

Biagiotti Bus:

+39 0583 75113


Payment of the transfer service must be made directly to the company who do it.

The service cannot be made during the busiest days: Easter, Spring Bank Holiday weekends, Sundays in August and days near the 14th August. On those days we do not advise anyone to come to the cave with a bus.
