    Frasassi Caves Shore Excursion from Ancona Port

Frasassi Caves Shore Excursion from Ancona Port

  • City: Ancona
  • Duration: The guided tour of the caves lasts about 90 minutes. Total duration of the service including the transfer is approximately 4 hours.

Overview

The Frassassi Caves is a complex of fascinating caves situated in Genga, a little town in the province of Ancona. They were first discovered in 1971 by a group of speleologists from the Marche who found themselves in front of the entry to a spectacular cave, later named the "Cave of the River." From that moment on, eight miles of limestone have been explored and experts claim that they may be able to excavate 22 miles more, scattered over eight different geologic levels.

Your private guide will pick you up at your cruise dock in Ancona and lead you on this half-day underground adventure. The portion of the cave open to the general public comprises almost one mile of walkways equipped with theatrical lighting. Among the wonders you will be able to see is the awesome Grotta Grande del Vento, Europe's largest cave, so big that Milan Cathedral would comfortably fit inside it; and a series of elegant stalagmites and stalactites that, thanks to the slow work of water on rock, are literally natural sculptures formed by layers of limestone over 190 million years.

The Frasassi Caves are truly one of the most evocative underground routes of Europe and a dramatic way to learn more about the history of our Earth. The group guided tour of the caves will last around one hour and 15 minutes during which the temperature is a constant 14 degrees C (57.2 degrees F). Following the experience, you will be driven back to your cruise dock in Ancona.

Please note that due to the Frasassi Cave regulations, your guide cannot accompany you inside the caves. You will join a guided group tour in Italian and you will be provided with headsets so that you can hear the explanation in English.
