  • Salt with steps to the top of the Hill until you reach the Museum built on top with all the memorabilia and memories from the Cadutit of World War I, which are over one hundred thousand. Majestic Monument which leads to reflection. Attached photo.

  • Arrived at about 16.30, the impression is of Majesty, you have to think that it is a sacred place and you have to admire it in solemn silence. The thought goes to that generation of boys sent to die. And at 17 with the sunset and the "silence" heard playing the emotion the willies.

  • It is stunning to see that practically there is always someone who brings the same last name since there are many fallen who here remembers. To see.

  • In the distance it appears like a white staircase, whose gigantic dimensions overwhelms you while approaching it. Stepping up and up on the eleven "steps" staring at the 100 thousand names of buried soldiers is breathtaking, and not for the ascent. On the top, close to small church, under three large crosses, there are two common burial of hundred thousands unknown soldiers... Here one realise how crazy is war and its consequences.
  • A place to visit. The largest memorial in Italy and one of the largest in the world. It is recommended to read some historical background before the visit.
  • This is very good and historical places I like it
  • A somber reminder of WWI and the sacrifices made by countless men and women. I found the museums- both at the top of the memorial and across the street very informative and fascinating.
  • Historically very interesting but I have never liked the extremity in building these big memorials. The memorial is more about showing of.
