Unique museum. The people do live there. So you are walking through their living room. Different items with maritime theme.

The smell when you walk in is unforgettable and to find out that the people who guide you around actually live in the museum makes it even more interesting. Our guide/hostess was cooking lunch in the kitchen. If you know what you're looking for you can give some interesting historic artifacts. The village and the museum have a wonderful ambiance!

A beautiful house by the sea with an astonishing view and collection of maritime artifacts. The lovely owner, who also lives there, gave me a very broad overview of the towns history and the showcased items. I would definitely recommend to stop by and have a chat with her. She also gave some helpful tips on the local hiking trails and surrounding nature. ??

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.
