Full description
Step back in time as you walk in the footsteps of Basilican Monks, who used the Zungri Caves for refuge in the Middle Ages. Absorb the magic of the città di pietra (Stone City), which some scholars believe was founded in the 10th Century. Weave your way in between 100 cave houses hewn out of the local stone. Marvel at windows, arches, and even smoke vents carved into the walls. Savor traditional Italian delicassies such as varieties of cheese and pickles during a local food-tasting session. Enjoy fantastic views of the surrounding countryside, which stretches down to the Tyrrhenian Sea.
