A Modern Luxury Hotel Built in Prehistoric Caves

When you think of the Stone Age you don’t exactly think luxury, unless you remember some high-end establishment the Flintstones wandered into one time or another. There is however, a place in southern Italy where prehistoric caves called Sassi have been turned into modern accommodations.

Called Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita, the hotel is just one of numerous ancient dwellings found in the area, many of them thousands of years old, however it has been recently renovated to be able to adequately receive tourists. The facilities themselves are great, but it’s the unique setting that is the most attractive thing about it – where else are you going to find a luxurious hotel room in an actual prehistoric cave?

You can book one of the 18 rooms of the Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita for prices ranging from €100 to €700 (about $140 to $970) per night, depending on the season and the type of room you choose.
