To get here you need to drive 6 kms uphill in curves, wait 7 minutes for atunnel to clear, pay 2 euro per parking. The entrance to the dam is possible only for guided tours. So all in all, worth it just if you want to remember the dead.

I think that it’s a duty for every Italian to hommage the victims of the tragedy of Vajont. It’s unbelievable how such an engineering masterpiece which could have been useful turned into an instrument of death. The most touching part is where the kids who lost their lives are remembered with their names written on pieces of cloth (like Buddhist prayers)

The views are stunning. Looks can kill, we are told. We paid respect to the victims of disaster. Two * for whoever was responsible for that.

Definitely worth a visit if travelling through the Dolomites. This was the site of a terrible tragedy in 1963 when a massive landslide from the slopes of Monte Toc in the night displaced millions of litres of water over the dam, drowning 1910 people (Including any children) in the village below. The dam is now disused and the sight of a number of moving monuments and memorials to those who lost their lives.

If you are travelling by, you must take half a day to visit the dam and the various exhibits and memorials, it's very moving and important to remember the loss of life due to human mistakes. The engineers and the power company responsible should have evacuated the town, instead they went to watch the landslide and completely underestimated its mass, the tsunami that followed and the air blast.

This is a heartbreaking spot. The story is quite moving, and you wonder how something so tragic can happen in modern times. In the area you are able to visit the dam, experience a gallery drive along the side of the mountain, stop and have the tragedy explained through a series of posters and pictures, and visit a memorial dedicated to those innocents who lost their lives so suddenly.

Although this is the site of a real and relatively recent tragedy, the scenery is truly awesome. Even though I didn't understand our guide she was obviously affected by the tragedy that occurred. The tour was in Italian and lasted around 40 minutes at a cost of 5 euros. It is definitely worth doing the guided tour as you get to walk across the top of dam wall which while scary is breathtaking! This is a must do if in northern Italy!

I watched several videos about the Vajont's disaster but being there it is an experience. The visit organized by the Parco delle Dolomiti is really valuable. The guide will provide you a lot of info and he/she will bring you on top of the Dam and to the original location of the control room. It definitely worth a drive up there.
