  • Today more than ever it is important to visit places like this: the extraordinary cultural and historical importance joins the value that assumes this symbol of freedom. La rocca, impeccably preserved, recounts the battle of Solferino. Through the era's memorabilia, weapons, uniforms, paintings, videos, original documents, flags and much more, we retrace the historical events involving those who bravely fought to win independence. It is our duty to visit this historical record, know the facts, to remember the sacrifice of those who came before us and not to make it in vain, we defend our identity as a people. "The tip": take the kids. These values should be transmitted to future generations. And climbed on top of the fortress, admiring the panorama that stretches along the Plains, past the Lake and to the mountains of Trentino, you will understand why this tower is known as "the light of Italy".

  • Nice little attraction to between 30 minutes-1 hour. Amazing 360 degree view from the top of the tower. Fun for the kids to see gun positions and the swords from about 150 years ago.

  • A place that reminds us of the bloody battle of 24 June 1859 in which fought the French led by Napoleon III against the Austrian army led by Emperor Franz Joseph. In the Museum you can see a series of memorabilia, paintings, uniforms and weapons of the battle involving both armies. Up the Hill of the fortress you can hear and see documentaries describing the conflict in detail. joints on top from the roof terrace a spectacular 365 degree the surrounding area theatre of bloody battle, the fortress is nicknamed the spy of Italy. For us it was important this visit saw that last year we went to San Martino della Battaglia other place of the same incident.

  • ended up here by accident. so happens to be a significant place in history. well worth it if your an history buff. much is in italian, thats a pitty.
  • The tower is wheelchair accessible! Beautiful views!
  • Very peaceful
  • We visited in late August the fortress of Solferino with the ossuary and the Museum of arms. Wonderful experience, to do, especially for the younger ones, to remember that a lot of people died for our beautiful Italy. The rock does not happen because we have been discouraged because when we were there, there was an invasion of gnats, I was with my 4 years there seemed to be the case. We have seen outside the park that surrounds it. Everything nice. The ossuary is creepy and the nice little Museum, held up well. I would highly recommend.

  • Historical area where occurred one of the greatest battles in history. The characteristic piazza della Chiesa di San Nicola in few minutes you climb up the Hill and you enter the Fortress located in a strategic position. Inside there is a small museum and you can get up on top where on clear days you can distinguish clearly the Lake, the outlines of the mountains and the plain. Great for taking some great pictures. It can be the starting point for beautiful walks and cycling. For the lazy can also be reached by car.
