May and June
An opportunity to explore science in an engaging and passionate way: guided tours, workshops, country walks, conferences and palaeo-dinners focus on the wealth of archaeological evidence spread throughout the Lessini Mountains, a natural archive of primary interest in the context of the research on human evolution.
Special Sundays at Fumane Cave -
Sunday Guided Visits
From June to September
Come and see the cave which in recent years has contributed so much to changing our views on many aspects of human prehistory. Qualified guides will show you the signs of human presence in this small but major prehistoric site and tell you about the different people who used it, about their environment and how it was exploited, not forgetting the ongoing work of the archaeologists and the latest technologies that are applied with the aim of finding new interpretations to the history of mankind.
The guided visits last just under an hour.
Visitors reach the cave by a short footpath and some steel stairs and remain in the cave entrance.
On Special Sundays booking beforehand is not required but advisable.
