Road of 52 Tunnels, Valli del Pasubio

(4.9/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Road of 52 Tunnels is a military mule road built during World War I that allowed supplies to be transported to troops situated at Pasubio. Take the path across the southern face of the mountain, passing spires, deep canyons, and sheer rock faces. Be sure to bring a flashlight to navigate the 52 tunnels, as dripping water can make them slippery and visibility is variable. At the top you will be rewarded with panoramic views; there's a mountain hut where you can enjoy a meal or a cold beer before heading back down. In case you need it, there is the option to take an easier road down again if your feet are tired from the journey up, but it does not share the views and scenery of the main path. Using our international travel planner, Valli del Pasubio attractions like Road of 52 Tunnels can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • This military road built by the Italian army to supply the troops of the front on Mount Pasubio allows in three hours to reach the refuge Achille Papa. Breathtaking views. Easy to access

  • I had now a great news: was reopened the Gallery n° 41, the only still closed because threatened by a landslide above. The danger was eliminated so you can do all the way as it was designed way back in 1917. They did maintenance on some bumpy galleries, say where they could adjust have run the patch. The galleries are all dark for which you need a good flashlight, especially for the longest (19 and 20). The n° 16, 17 and 34 were instead equipped with poetic light projections. Just to give a more news, I came with some kind of helmet set with two led lamps, makes a killer light, see well up to over 70 meters, I purchased over the internet, it's called "LED HEADLIGHT" comes with charger cable and costs just over £ 20.00: very useful. IMPORTANT: do not walk the path downhill, could be dangerous especially inside the galleries, wet all the time even if it hasn't rained for weeks. To return to the Valley used the way of Scarubi, convenient, and in some places, with detours that shorten the path.

  • Nothing to say, for those who love the mountains and the history, this is a path to do and redo! At every step, for each gallery you may wonder how, 100 years ago and then transport it was possible in short time build a path so Hardy. The route starts from Nozzle Campiglia (reachable from Schio from Posina) and in two hours (for those on a step) you get to Ref. Pope. The galleries are of different lengths, from a few tens of meters, up to 2/300 ... all without artificial lighting (the torch is a must!) Arrived at rifugio...ci i can stop or steer towards the tooth Italian and Austrian, the scene of bloody battles. For the return, consider the road of Scarrubi, less picturesque, but sweeter and convenient. Downside (already reported): paid parking and only with coins, with no possibility of return. Attention then to forecast: cpita often leave with the Sun ... and halfway through he looking clouds and rain.
