In the depths of the earth
Caves are a unique environment, luminous and magical. They represent a world that is little-known - a world of sandy beaches, dunes, waterfalls, fast-flowing rivers, lakes of crystal-clear water and magnificent calcareous formations, which in Italy presents a whole range of truly marvelous opportunities for the nature-loving tourist. The complexity and richness and Italy's geological history have created an infinite variety of underground caves and caverns. Apart from the innumerable itineraries reserved for more experienced speleologists, in Italy several very large caves are open to the public, which are famous throughout the world for their beauty.
