Frasassi Caves (in the Marche, but still close to Gubbio)

60 km – 50 minuti

Among the biggest caves in Europe and the whole world, Frasassi Caves were discovered in 1948 as one of the most fascinanting and magical underground world ever.

The biggest cave is called Abisso Ancona (Ancona Abyss): being 240 meters high, it’s so big it could easily contain the whole Milan Cathedral!

The entire complex of caves is around 30 kilometers long, although not all of it is open to the public. Inside, the temperature is a constant 14 degree, both in summer and winter: get yourself prepared and dress accordingly!

You should book your visit in advance: it lasts 75 minutes and will allow you to explore about one kilometer and a half of the caves.

Big- and medium-sized dogs can be left in dedicated boxes for free, while you can carry small-sized dogs can be carried inside the caves, either in your arms or in a pet carrier.
