Cinque Torri (Five Towers/Fünf Türme) is a rock formation in the Eastern Dolomites, near Cortina d’Ampezzo and the Averau Mountain. This formation is made up of several peaks, or towers, that are a sight to see and are popular among rock climbers. The tallest tower actually appears to be three separate towers, but is considered one. Here is a list of the five towers: Torre Grande (grand tower): the tallest of the towers; has three separate peaks Torre Seconda (second tower): also composed of three peaks Terza Torre (third tower) or Torre Latina (latin tower) Quarta Torre (fourth tower): two peaks of different height Quinta Torre (fifth tower) or Torre Inglese (english tower) It is possible to reach Cinque Torri by chairlift from Bai de Dones, however this hike is a full hiking loop beginning at the car park at the bottom of the lift. You can also begin this same loop from nearby Rifugio Col Gallina. A moderate climb that is uphill on the way there and downhill on the way back, this hike also features WWII trenches to make an already exhilarating journey even more rewarding. At the top you can stop at Rifugio Scoiatolli for a rest, a bite to eat, or a drink. Once at the rifugio you are not far from the towers and can take a number of pathways to meander around and admire the mighty formations.Show more

The Lagazuoi Galleries were created by Italian soldiers during the First World War and are now available to the public. Classified as a via ferrata for beginners (the Via Ferrata Galleria del Piccolo Lagazuoi), the route is fully equipped with cables and equipment to guide you through the dark and rocky terrain. It is recommended that you bring gloves, a headlamp or headlamp and a helmet. It's a great activity to do if the weather isn't ideal, as you'll be covered most of the way. In fact, once you enter the tunnels you will have only sporadic glimpses of the outside world through artificial windows in the rock until you reach the exit. There are two ways to experience the Lagazuoi Galleries. Probably the most common method is to take the cable car from Passo Falzarego to Piccolo Lagazuoi (the smallest peak of Monte Lagazuoi) and then descend through the tunnels. For those looking for more of a challenge, it is entirely possible to hike both up and down through the tunnels (trail link). If you want to make this journey a little easier, you can send your package on the paid cable car and collect it at the top for your return journey. Outside the galleries at the top are the Lagazuoi Refuge and the summit of the Piccolo Lagazuoi. Stop at the hut for a bite to eat with a view, or stop for a while and enjoy the Finnish sauna.
