THE “FRASASSI” CAVES

 

Цена: € 53 на възрастен, € 37 на дете

 

Duration: 4.5 hours

 

An approx. 45-min drive through the pretty Italian countryside takes you to Genga and the unforgettable Frassasi Caves. Your guide will escort you on an underground adventure among the otherworldly stalagmites and stalactites found within the famous cave system, which was discovered and then explored between 1948 and 1971. The safe routes through the spectacular caves coupled with dramatic lighting make this a truly awe-inspiring experience for the whole family. The caves also boast Europe’s largest single cavern, the Grotta Grande del Vento – so big that Milan Cathedral would easily fit inside.

Please note: we suggest to bring a jacket because temperature inside the caves is around 14 degrees. Comfortable shoes recommended.

 

 

 

“RIVIERA DEL CONERO”

 

Цена: € 43 на възрастен, € 30 на дете

 

Duration: 3.5 hours

 

Leave the port of Ancona for a journey into the verdant countryside of the Italian Marche region. This pleasant sightseeing tour by coach first takes you to Sirolo, a lovely seaside village with a fully restored medieval centre. The charming square in the middle of the village, the Piazza Belvedere, affords beautiful views of the sea and Mount Conero, a 572-metre promontory just south of Ancona that got its name from the Greek word for the strawberry trees that grow on its slopes. You will have time to explore the village and its church at your leisure before continuing on to Portonovo, another coastal village in the Marche region where the secluded Santa Maria di Portonovo abbey was founded in the 11th century. Your tour draws to a close with a scenic return drive to Ancona.
