The Museo Guerra Museum provides an amazing amount of World War I artifacts found in the Dolomites, where the Italians and Austrians fought in brutal conditions. Imagine trenches filled with ice and snow and trying to stay warm. Our guide was dressed in an ancestors uniform and described how the soldiers were often fighting against neighbors and relatives, since this... More

This is a must do. Visiting the Tre Sassi fort really takes you back in the past - walking through the trenches, seeing the huge number of artifacts in the museum chambers or reading the stories. Even the museum has only 3 chambers that you can visit, plan to spend some time there and check out all the WW1 artifacts.... More

The museum is located at a dramatic location on a mountain pass on the road to Cortina D'Ampezzo. The views surrounding the... More

Ever dream of hiking in a superb panorama, while still learning history and walking in the path of WW1 soldiers? That's the place to go. Cinque Torri and Lagazuoi area!

Small and quite boring, noone to talk about the war. Very cold at winter time. Though it's nice that it exists. It provokes to skim through the history pages.

This museum is really three separate sites : Great War Museum in Tre Sassi Fort : 5 Torri and Lagazuoi. The Great War Museum is in Tre Sassi Fort and there is an entrance charge. The museum itself is an unexceptional collection of exhibits and displays but they are housed in an old Austro-Hungarian Fort which wasbuilt in the nineteenth... More
