  • The Fort is very well kept, the tour lasts about 1 hour and is not binding on a physical level. the guide is very prepared and friendly. Interesting for those who love the genre, on a sunny day it also enjoys great views. Recommended

  • I could start and conclude the review with a question: where you get to see a strong and intact early 20th century artillery pieces still work? The answer I got: anywhere! The price is really low (€7 or €10 combined ticket Montecchio North-Fuentes), also includes a well prepared guide that will show you even the operation of the guns.

  • Entrance fee €8 to head with guide. The Fort is spectacular and everything to see, unfortunately very bare. Was a strong Italian active from World War I until the years 70. The main attraction are the four cannons located on top of the Fort, one of which is still working. Remember to read all written located inside the Fort. Long live Italy

  • Remarkably well preserved fort with excellent views from the gun platform, only a short walk from Colico station. It has an interesting history and the wider conflict around a lesser well front (to me at least) of the First World War compared to the more widely known battles of the Western Front was also an eye opener. Our guide was very knowledgeable, impressively conducting the tour in multiple languages whilst still finding time to accommodate each set of guests and answer questions. When we visited you couldn't just roam the site freely, you had to join a tour, so check what times the tours run to avoid disappointment. A wholly unexpected discovery in this region, definitely worth a visit.
  • With all the beautiful nature around, it's hard to believe that at one time their were bunker here...
  • Intresting place worth visiting. There is a good guide who speaks excellent german and english.
  • An amazing piece of history located in a stunning place. You gotta visit it
  • An enjoyable tour of this Very interesting military fort.
