We were supposed to reach the cave by boat but sadly the sea was not calm enough. So the alternative was a pleasant jeep ride up the hill instead of the boat. I am glad I had no idea what was to follow! Levanzo is...More

I visited the Genovese grotto during my holidays in the Egadi islands. Really interesting visit. It takes almost 2 hours and it's well organised. You can see engraving, graffiti, and prehistoric paintings. Easy to book.

This is a must do if you are on the island of Levanzo. It is easy to get a boat out to the other side of the island and a guide will take you into the cave. The tour isn't very expensive.
