WHAT TO WEAR TO VISIT THE CAVES OF OLIERO
We recommend you wear comfortable outdoor/sports clothing, sturdy sports footwear or trekking shoes/boots and a waterproof jacket or fleece (the temperature is stable at 12°C). Helmets and life jackets required to enter Covol dei Siori are provided by the complex.
DURING YOUR VISIT TO THE PAROLINI CAVE
The visit to the Parolini Cave, or Covol dei Siori, on a small hand-propelled boat, lasts 30 minutes. You will be accompanied by a nature and environmental guide. It is NOT necessary to book a visit to this cave and to enter the nature complex in general (unless for groups of more than 40 people and schools/educational institutions). The Parolini Cave has no set opening times either and entry depends on visitor numbers. NO priority entry.
ADVICE FOR VISITING THE PAROLINI CAVE
- do not extend hands or lean out of the boat
- keep your head down for the first ten metres of the ride
- do not touch stalactites and stalagmites inside the cave with your bare hands
- no flash photography inside the cave
LENGHT OF STAY IN THE CAVES OF OLIERO COMPLEX
You can stay in the surrounding park, the Museums in the complex (Speleology and Karst Museum and Paper Mill Museum), the nature path and picnic areas as long as you wish within set opening times.
ACCESSIBILITY IN THE CAVES OF OLIERO COMPLEX
The Caves of Oliero are situated in a natural environment that does not permit full accessibility. The entrance, bar and picnic areas, bathrooms and Speleology and Karst Museum and Paper Mill Museum are accessible to everyone. The path that leads to the Parolini Cave entrance is a steep, unpaved path and therefore not easily accessible for wheelchair users and people with mobility difficulties. It is not possible for wheelchair users and people with mobility difficulties to enter the Parolini Cave.
