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...More

What a site! It was fun to check out the fortifications from WW1. It is an amazing place and worth the extra time and steps.

This is a fascinating look at what happened in WWI. Besides the dramatic setting amongst the craggy towers of the Dolomites, seeing the restored trenches and structures of the war was very impressive and informative. Easy access by way of a lift. We had lunch...More

We got the chairlift up here and walked around the mountainside museum. Very thought provoking and I am so pleased that we walked around it. Great information boards at set points so that you can understand what the exhibits are highlighting.

Do not miss this if you are in the area. This amazingly beautiful mountain area, which is so peaceful now, was the sight of some brutal fighting between the Italians and Austrians from 1915 to 1918. The Italians were entrenched on the Cinque Torri side...More

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.
