Road of 52 Tunnels, Valli del Pasubio

#1 of 60 in Trails in Veneto
Must see · Hiking Trail · Historic Walking Area
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.
