We will go on a trek that will immerse us in the epicenter of the eastern front of the First World War along trenches, walkways and gunboats. A surreal atmosphere imagining the state of mind of the fighters on the 1914-1918 front (Gorizia entered the war a year earlier than Italy).
We will have the opportunity to see a private war museum run by volunteers as well as a multimedia museum to experience the front. We will tackle the Brestovec path, a walk in the middle of the Karst along the trenches built after the sixth battle of the Isonzo.
Lunch in an “osmiza” - the typical restaurant of the Karst - tasting typical dishes of the area.
In the afternoon the visit will resume with a visit to the Bersaglieri sinkhole at Monte sei Busi along the evocative walkways that the soldiers walked and then descend towards the Redipuglia Memorial where one hundred thousand soldiers are buried: the largest monument dedicated to the fallen of the first world war.
We recommend a walk to the top of the monument where there is a chapel (closed for renovations in this period).
