The Antro del Corchia has an extension of over 70 km of tunnels and wells, with 1,200 meters of maximum height difference and a system of karst ducts developed in 2 cubic km of rock, which make it the largest underground complex in Italy and one of the major ones in Europe.
The guided tour of the tourist cave starts in Piazza Geremia Barsottini, in Levigliani di Stazzema (LU). A shuttle bus will take you to the Antro del Corchia entrance, built in an abandoned marble quarry at 860 m above sea level, a beautiful terrace on the Apuan Alps.
Visitors will be accompanied inside the karst complex by expert operators, who will entertain guests with information on geology, karst, and speleology. The route winds for about 2 km inside the cave thanks to a combined system of steel walkways and passages on natural rock, with a very low environmental impact, which allows entering the heart of the Apuan Alps in complete safety.
Once the excursion is over, visitors will have the opportunity to relax at the cave entrance, where it is possible to enjoy a wonderful view, find refreshment and stop at the souvenir shop, which offers minerals, marble products, and memories of the just-lived experience.
