I would recommend to everyone to take 30-60 mins out of their day and take the 700m walk up to Tempio del Valadier. It is an extremely relaxing and peaceful place at the top and unlike anything I have seen before.

Stumbled upon this by accident and so glad we did! It's quite the climb but there is a nice paved walkway the entire way and benches to stop and rest should you need. It's so fascinating to see this temple built into the cave and...More

Although this was relatively difficult to find - the small layby on the mountain round - the 700m climb was worth the effort to see this spectacular building in its setting.

Very steep hike up but definitely worth it. We enjoyed seeing the church and how it fit perfectly into the opening of the cave! It was fun to see some rock climbers scaling the cave walls, too. Nice stop before we toured Grotto di Frasissi

This beautiful church is as quaint and charming as the scenery and views are spectacular. The simplicity of the design of the church is perfect for this cave perched 700m uphill. The walk can be a bit difficult but if you take your time and...More
