Public transportPublic transport doesn’t reach the starting point of the route. Arriving by public transport it is recommended to stop at the cemetery car park, near the bell tower of Fregona, and continue by foot along the route 1037B "Pont de fer-Grotte del Caglieron" (see route), which directly connects the parking lot to the Parco delle Grotte and consequently also the path in question. Instead, if you arrive with your own vehicle see "how to get there".
Getting thereComing from the A27 motorway, take the Vittorio Veneto Sud exit and follow the directions for Cansiglio. After about 8.8 km, at the crossroads in front of the town of Fregona, follow the signs for Grotte del Caglieron, turning left. Once inside the park, you can make use of the dedicated parking lots.
ParkingThe available parking lots are located inside the Grotte del Caglieron Park, one after the bridge on the left and another before the bridge, continuing straight on up to a roundabout.
In the case that the 2 car parks are full, you can use the unpaved park in the locality of Piai (marked on the map) or that of the cemetery in Fregona.
