Description

It is hard to tell if Grotta della Tanaccia is a show cave or not. There are no lights and the visitors get helmets, so the trip has a sort of spelunking touch. It is an absolutely easy to visit cave with no special difficulty. Nevertheless it is not recommended for the claustrophobic.

The tours are guided by members of the Gruppo Speleologico Faentino. Helmets and headlamps are provided, but additionally an overall may be hired for an extra fee. The scheduled trips are made with groups of two to fifteen visitors, reservations for other times only for groups of seven or more. A fine thing is that photography is generally allaowed, which is exceptional in Italian show caves.

The trip follows the huge main passage of the cave for some time. As the cvae is gypsum cave there is a wealth of solutional forms, but generally no speleothems. The cave is an important prehistoric cave and was excavated during the last century.
