Grotte di Toirano, Toirano

#1 of 39 in Nature in Liguria
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).

  • I visited the caves with a 6-year-old boy who had no problem indeed he was enthusiastic about the beauty of nature. The very well-prepared and nice guide was able to involve the children present in the group. Each group usually leaves every half hour. All you need is closed shoes with a rubber sole, like sneakers and a jacket that is not too heavy, inside the caves there are 16 degrees. Leaving the caves you can visit the sanctuary of St. Lucia which is just above the caves themselves.
