I think these caves will impact everyone who visits them differently. They are a fascinating step back into history, religious, cultural, societal and spiritual. I was fortunate enough to be guided by Simona, who not only is a guide but has done much of the...More

Didn't know they existed, until a local told us where to go. It is such an historic part of Osimo and should be advertised more so people can fully appreciate the town's history. Loved it.

My wife and I were very fortunate to have a super guided tour in English with Simone (sp?). Our tour with just the three of us was not rushed and Simone's enthusiasm about the history of the caves was contagious.

Typical place to visit when the weather is not so good, and you cannot go to the beach; but be careful! In these days is crowded, it's better to call and book for the visit. It takes 45min, with a guide who will explain you...More
