This was a very interesting visit. We walked up to the museum rather than took the cable car. We went to do the Via Ferrata and were not disappointed. I recommend this if you want a taste of history, if you want to climb as there are some trad climbs and some sport climbs and if you want to do... More

Had a good walk up here, both refugios we visited were excellent. Classy light lunch with great views. Wish we had these in the UK!

Worth visiting with very informative boards about the life and history of the mountain "warriors" Can get a bit lost if you do not know the "main road " that brings up or down in the valley.

We had a pretty full day this day as we had already done the Tre Cime hike in the morning, but were determined to do the 5 torri walk as we had heard and read a lot about it. The drive up from Cortina was great with terrific views on the way up. Be ready for a very small, but... More

Nice hiking through an outdoor museum of WWI. There are gun emplacements, trenches and informational story boards over a 3km ? loop near Rufigio 5 Torri and Rifugio Scoiattoli. You can take the chairlift up or choose from several walking tracks to access this area.

This is a terrific hike. Not only challenging but interesting because you walk through the trenches that the soldiers used in World War I. Information placards at the sites are well done.

A fantastic place to visit for anyone who is interested in the Great War. This little known and understood battleground saw some of the fiercest fighting in WW1, far away from the Belgian fields. The trenches and fortifications are very well restored and the signage is in Italian, German and English.

We had limited time in Cortina and wanted to do some easy hiking. Our hotel recommended the 5 torri. It's a 25 minute drive from the center of town. Take the chairlift up. The outdoor museum itself is free. It's a fascinating looked at the bunkers. There is a lot of steep climbing of stairs and rocks. Not for the... More

Amidst the massive boulders and the breathtaking scenery, there comes this open museum showing what happened between Italian and Austrian forces in WWI. One can never imagine the hardship of fighting in such unbelievably harsh conditions until it is visited in person. There are many trenches left and one cannot believe living long winters in them. The amount of natural... More
