Activity: The Wave Cave Ring (Anello di Grotta all’Onda)
Area: Apuan Alps (Alpi Apuane)
Description: A tour of great naturalistic and historical interest.
Going up along a creek, we will reach Grotta all’Onda (“wave cave”), a large and spectacular cavity surrounded by small waterfalls, which was inhabited almost uninterruptedly from the Neanderthal era up to recent years.
Present and characteristic inhabitants are newts and the endemic spectacled salamander.
After visiting the cave, we will resume the ascent up to the Foce del Termine and more up to the Foce del Pallone (1,080 m).
From there, in clear days, the view will range from the southern Apuan Alps to Corsica and from the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago to the Apennines.
Then the route will be almost completely downhill or on a slight slope, along the southern slopes of Mount Matanna.
Back to the starting point, it will be possible to taste local products.
