This is a hike you will never forget. The path itself is challenging (2 1/2 - 3 hours of steady climbing at about 10% grade) but well worth the exertion for the breathtaking vistas and the marvel of the tunnels. We repeated to ourselves many...More

We had seen glowing reviews, and fantastic photos for this walk. The massive entry way at the start of the hike would lead one to expect a well maintained, popular trail. The road up to the site is an experience of its own! Unfortunately we...More

This is an amazing walk with superb scenery at every turn, and the adventure of passing through many tunnels as part of the climb. You could do the ascent (of around 2500 feet or about 800m) in around 2 hours if you're fit and don't...More

This 6km trail represents everything needed in a trail: adventure, views, difficulty and history. Adventure: all the tunnels are spectacular and you need a light to get through them. Views: the views of the dolomites outside the tunnels are amazing. Difficulty: we started at the...More

Together wiht my partner we explored the Strada delle 52 Gallery driving from Vicenza to Valli del Pasubio. The last part of the driving is quite tricky as it is a very narrow without a possibility that 2 cars can pass each other. In summer...More

This is a challenging hike through the tunnels with a reward after the 52nd tunnel ... a rifugio with good eats! You can walk back on the road to the parking area. If you really want a fun challenge, consider doing the via ferrata that...More

This is a moderate to difficult hike depending on how good of shape you're in. There are some steep sections even in the tunnels. The day we went Rif Papa was scheduled to be closed but was actually open. A large group had called and...More

This hike takes most fit and properly-equipped (boots, flashlights, water, rain gear, etc.) hikers three hours to get up to Rif Papa and an additional two hours down the Scarubbi Road to return to the trailhead. Add an additional hour if one leaves from Passo...More

Make sure you punch in the longitude and latitude on your gps as it's almost impossible to get the correct address for this place. Also make sure you bring six euros in CHANGE for parking. The hike itself had great views if it's a clear...More

This is one of the most amazing and beautiful hikes which can be accomplished in a day, alternatively you can stay overnight in the accommodation at the top of the mountain then return the following day. The 52 Galleries (tunnels) were created by Italian tunnelling...More

We did not use our cellphone on the hike. However, because of the remote location, I don't think reception would be good. If you called Refugio Rif Papa (if it is still open this season), they could tell you. 39 0445... More
