    Departure from Pontasserchio (parking in front of the Peace park) at 8.00 am.

    Stop on the way. Expected arrival at

    Visit and entrance to the caves lasting about 75 minutes. In the first part we will see the Abyss Ancona, a huge cavity, perhaps among the largest in the world, 200 meters high. Entering the tourist route, a crystallized lake is visible above which there is a stalagmite of over 2 meters. Viewed in perspective, its particular shape has stimulated the imagination of speleologists who called it “the devil with the candle”. Another detail is the “Niagara”, a very pure white calcite flow. The Abisso Ancona room ends and ends with a very visible lowering of the vault, after which the second room begins, called the “Room of the two hundred”. In this room the imposing group of millenary stalagmites called “The Giants” dominates and can be considered the most important stalagmites in the cave. From this place, observing the dome of the “Abyss Ancona” it is possible to see the natural opening through which the first speleologists descended into the complex to announce their discovery to the world.

    Free lunch. At the end, departure for the visit of the hermitage of the white monks, about half an hour from the caves. A walk of about 800 meters awaits us which winds its way through the woods to reach our destination where a guide will lead us to the discovery of this magnificent place which is part of the “Places of silence”.
