Enjoy an awesome speleological visit to the travertine caverns inside the Belverde Archaeological Park in Cetona. The park provides an excellent opportunity to combine archaeology and nature: the landscape is one of uncontaminated woodland that can be enjoyed on foot. You can also explore different kinds of landscapes with your professional guide. The underground corridors, rooms, and tunnels were formed over millennia and to explore them is to take a step back in time.
Explore the interior of the Grotta of St. Francis, once inhabited by Neanderthal man. The grotta is the largest of all the caves and it's called "di San Francesco" after the saint who allegedly spent time there. There are three communicating caves that lead to the Franciscan hermitage. They are called Antro della Noce, Antro del Poggetto and Tombetta della Strada.
