I am very fascinated by the story of WW1 in the Dolomites, and have visited the area around the Cinque Torri Open Air museum many times, including well before work began to create it. What has been done is not intrusive, and tells its story very well. Accessible by chairlift from just off the Falzarego pass road (last day of... More

In 2014 it will be 100 years since the start of World War I. Few people know that some of the fiercest battles of the war took place on the peaks of the Dolomites where Italian and Austrian troops spent months lobbing shells and each other and suffering indescribable hardship.

The area is absolutely fantastic and definitely worth a visit. In summer was great, the trek to the 5 Torri from Falzarego takes 3 hrs and relaxing.

I visited this site with a group whilst poor weather prevented us from climbing. This open air museum with its reconstructions of WWI artillery positions provided them with a taste of what it must have been like to serve in these high trenches in WW1 but there was not enough to warrant returning with another group unless in the area...

While there you have plenty choice to eat good food. After a... More
