This is an amazing part of history. I enjoyed hiking through the 52 tunnels with my friends. This was the first mountain I have ever been up. If you are doing it for the first time make sure you bring water and little snacks and take breaks so your body can adjust to the lack of oxygen.

The Strada delle 52 Gallerie (Road of 52 Tunnels) is a military mule road built during World War I by the Italian Army and civilian workers. The road with 52 tunnels was built in 1916-17 and now is a favorite hiking route--no bikes allowed. We stayed in S. Antonio di Valli del Pasubio (VI) at B&B CA' Bariolae Ambrosia, Info@cabariola.it,... More

A must do if you live in Vicenza, Venice, or throughout the Veneto region. At nearly 100 years old, the sheer scale of this trail and the tunnels built will amaze you. Definitely need to start early and be moving by 9/930 and check the weather. In the first week of October, there was frost and light snow falling in... More

If you are in the Venice, Verona, Vicenza area and need an "outdoor" experience, this is it! The hike is fairly strenuous but the views, the tunnels, the history, make it so worth the effort. We used our Iphone for directions and it worked perfect to the "Strada delle 52 Gallerie". You could also put in Passo Xomo and then... More

Took a great hike on this historic trail. Amazing work of engineering to carve these caves, especially #19 that winds on top of itself like a corkscrew. Hike is great and takes between 2-3 hours. Great scenic overlooks of the Dolomites all throughout he walk. At the top is a great bar and restaurant to rest up and refresh before... More

I don't hike much but this was a tiring climb. Through the tunnels a torch is required because the tunnel system was planned for mules to carry munitions to the top. Yes it can be slippery but remain focused and look back at how far you have come and not how far you have to go. Once you get to... More

Whilst driving to the hike it was raining very heavily - we considered turning back but very glad we didn't. We parked in the carpark at the start of the hike (€6 in coins needed for the machine). The majority of the hike up was wet and we were totally soaked through from the waist down but the overall experience... More

Amazing way to the top of the mountain. it's not to easy on the beginning, but after 10 tunnel the way it's too flat. It's essential to bring along the lamp, some galleries are long and dark. At the top there is a shelter where you can eat something very good. The parking have a price of 6€ use only... More

We have visited the road at May '16. After 41st tunnel we couldn't pass because of snow. The road start from memorial and goes up to mountain. You can walk in 3hours. The problem is you need to walk back same road or different route but longer than 52 tunnels road.

May 21, 2016 - the trail is open through all 52 tunnels (path 366) but there is still some snow to go over & around. Keep in mind with the rain and/or snow melt dripping in the tunnels, that parts of this hike are very slick. Definitely need boots not tennis shoes, flashlight or head lamps, snacks & water, take...
