The town deserves a visit and due to its numerous hotels it will not be hard to find an accommodations.

A few steps from the entrance of the Frasassi Caves, you will find the Santa Maria infra Saxa Hermitage, a building excavated in the rock known since XI century. In 1928 the Pope Leone XII,   born in Genga, asked to the great architect Valadier to build an octagonal marble temple. The walk to the temple is not hard and once you are at destination you can still feel the particular combination between natural stone and religious presence.
In town, you can visit the important Speleo- Paleontho -Archeological Museum showing an important Ichthyosaurus skeleton and a  8000 b.c. Human skull.

Genga is the ideal starting point for your excursions. It is not far from the Frasassi Caves but not only. You can find in the neighbourhood a net of paths starting from San Vittore and its homonymous Gothic church partly restored.
Across those paths you will be taken to the most luxuriant nature with its flowers, animals and breathtaking landscapes. Genga is also a sport centre. In the park you will have the chance to try canoes, go hang-gliding, trekking, and try to be a speleologist.
