The tunnels under Osimo are a fascinating walk through history. The damp coolness was also a refreshing break from the heat outside. There were no English tours available on the day we visited; however, the guide gave us an English language transcript of the tour...More

Didn't know they existed, until a local told us where to go. It is such an historic part of Osimo and should be advertised more so people can fully appreciate the town's history. Loved it.

It was worth waiting for Simone the English speaking guide to be able to take us round. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and we learned a lot about the long and varied history of these man made caves.

My wife and I were very fortunate to have a super guided tour in English with Simone (sp?). Our tour with just the three of us was not rushed and Simone's enthusiasm about the history of the caves was contagious.

The soft sandstone forms the underground of many hilltop cities in the Marches; then (as for the Orvieto tuff or for the tuff which forms much of the underground Naples) is to be expected that, through the centuries, tunnels and underground rooms have been excavated,...More

We understand enough Italian to do the tour in that language. it was super interesting. If you don't speak Italian, wait for the English language tour or you won't get much out of it. We enjoyed seeing these underground tunnels and hearing the various uses...More
