Considered “show caves” for the beauty and accessibility, Grotte di Toirano displays a remarkable karst cave system. Spelunkers found the system in 1950, but they were beaten in time by prehistoric man who found it some 14000 years earlier, and by the cave bear, which left bones, paw prints, and scratches on the walls. The required tour guides speak multiple foreign languages. Wear sensible shoes for potentially slippery walking surfaces, as well as clothes appropriate for 16 C (60 F).

An absolute must to see caves (grote) with interesting story and role in history of WWII. Easy to drive there and wonderful sights, both from the ground and from the top. Recommend!

Amazing cave system with so many different types of formations. Very knowledgeable guides who understand several languages if you ask questions. The walk up to the caves is very steep and tiring on a hot day, but the caves stay nice and cool. The cafe was not open the day we went which was disappointing. Plenty of free parking.
Everyone should go to visit this wonderful place almost one time. If you can walk you have to go. It do means your age, it's easy and funny. Another Italian treasure. Nature is wonderful!
