Audio guides

If you come on days when there is no guided tour, or if you want to visit the fort by yourself, you can use the handy audio guides at the eating area.

You will be guided around the fort by the voices of the guides of the association “ACR Il Forte”, that is the guides holding guided tours during the scheduled days.

Inside the fort are the signposted points and the corresponding audio tracks to connect to for listening to the history, secrets and curiosities of this impressive war machine that was never accomplished.

Currently the audio guides are available in Italian, but are soon to be released also in English and German.

For a pleasant visit

The visit includes an exterior and an interior part of the fort. The entire route takes about one hour and thirty minutes.

Some display panels will describe the most significant events that affected the fort from its construction to its recent renovation, and they will illustrate the original function of the different rooms.
During the visit, we suggest following the chronological order of the panels. The fort has three floors.
The tour develops along the main floor,

where you can walk through the rooms which used to house troop quarters, service areas, firing and observation positions.
The tour develops along the main floor, where you can walk through the rooms which used to house troop quarters, service areas,
firing and observation positions. A metal staircase leads to the upper floor, where armored artillery domes were supposed to be built
and where today a walkway allows visitors to observe a wide
panorama of the valley and the surrounding mountains.

We would like to remind you that the fort is a historical relic with environmental and risk conditions that require care and caution during the visit.

Visitors are requested not to leave the marked paths and not to run. Do not climb nor lean on parapets.
