Is the visit to the Dream Caves suitable for everyone?
The visit is suitable for people of all ages, from young children to the elderly. Children can be carried but not in a backpack. Inside the Caves, walkways and stairs have been built.

To reach the entrance, you follow a short mule track where there is a fence to lean against. Sometimes the ground feels slightly slippery. Unfortunately, it is not possible for people in wheelchairs to visit. No animals are allowed inside.

Did you know that the Dream Caves were the first caves enhanced touristically in Lombardy?
In 1931, Ermenegildo Zanchi, a well-known speleologist from San Pellegrino, called the grandfather of the abyss because of his immense passion, noticed a crevice in the ground and decided to rappel inside. He thus discovered the Caves, which he called the Dream Caves because it seemed to him that he had experienced a dream.
The Dream Caves can be visited approximately from April to October according to the schedule established each year.
You will be accompanied by an experienced guide who will tell you the story of the discovery of the Dream Caves and explain how a cave is formed.
The visit is suitable for everyone and takes about 30 minutes.
The visit is usually in Italian, but you can ask for a brief summary in English
