    Plenty of shade and seating on the steps in the evening. Great to see family and friends meet up. Train station across the road and the river runs beside the building.

    The guided tour in English is well worth the admission of 6 euros. Very Regal and full of history, similar but a bit smaller than Royal Albert Hall, London. Also the theatre has a lift with access to all floors for the less mobile.

    Redipuglia World War I Memorial

    Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

    The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
