You won't be sorry visiting the 5 torri!

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... read 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

The Dolomites front has been one of the harshest battlefields of the First World War with tens of thousands of people fighting in the most difficult conditions under metres of snow and on rocky slopes at heights between 2000 and 3000 metres. This Museum together with the one in Valparola and the Sacrario at Pocol gives you an idea of... More

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 at the nearby Cinque Torri refuge; it too was excellent.
