    A place that brings back memories of the tragedy of 9 October 1963. A sobering place and pushing up the anger ... a must see!

    This review is intended to highlight some issues that we found in the tourism management of site-wide safety above all. Anything by removing the historical significance that this dam represents for the tragedy that has occurred and in respect of all the victims who have died as a result of the disaster, let me make a clarification on the "tourist" mismanagement of the site. In fact my score refers to the management of the site rather than to what this attraction is whose score is five dots. First, the traffic is regulated by a traffic light, which lasts approximately 7 minutes, so the road, in the galleria, is one way. Arrived to the site there is a small parking fee, €2 time, a little further on there is another with bathrooms and another much more distant. Also, for those who want to go directly over the dam must do so through a guide of the local pro loco and costs €5 since access is closed to the public. Given that the guides have set times until you get the time you have to wait outside with nothing covered to protect them from rain or Sun, without a bench for older people, also the only bani available are those at the second parking lot that you have to pay for. In the immediate vicinity of the first parking ticket and for those who want to visit with the guide there is a pickup truck that makes sandwiches (with disco music which is entirely inappropriate for a place with a strong emotional impact). Also, even though there are indications neither permission nor ban, many people walking adventure inside the Gallery to see more of the dam; choice a little risky since when the light clicks you must be very careful not to get run over by cars or motorcycles zipping around corners fast enough; the best thing would be to have a small pedestrian zone in order to prevent accidents although in reality there are no indications that allow access on foot in the Gallery, but given the amount of people that still logs on, on its own initiative, in the gallery would be appropriate to adopt the appropriate measures. My advice is to visit the site carefully to those who obviously doesn't want to pay the Guide and be patient to find the place anyway because people are much more critical and within hours you create confusion. I apologize but I felt it was only right to point out the logistics situation for visitors to this site.

    On 14 August 2017 I went with my family to the Vajont dam, the guide who drove us along the path was well informed about the history and was very good at explaining, even the staff at the hostel where they bought the tickets and were friendly. Only advice, do not bring dogs, or better said, that dogs that on that day I saw, they were afraid to take the path on the dam. Great service
