The majestic Parco delle Alpi Apuane rises in the background of Versilia's beaches. Known as the park of the "marble mountains," it extends over more than 30 km, ringed by peaks, pinnacles and rock arches. No less spectacular are the underground caves, including a total of 1,300 karst caves. Standing out among these is the Antro del Corchia, which has over 60 km of tunnels with a 1,200 m change in level, making it the deepest abyss in Italy and one of the largest in Europe. Equally impressive is the sight of the Grotta del Vento (Wind Cave) in the heart of the Parco Naturale delle Alpi Apuane. Convenient paths let you admire all the wonders of the underground world lit by spotlights. You'll see dynamic, brilliant stalactites and stalagmites, colorful lava rock, draping alabaster, crystal-studded pools, underground streams and bizarre forms of erosion.
