Impressive 8-floor museum over world maritime history. Accessible to all including non-German speakers. Left the museum having enjoyed learning Can easily spend 2+h inside as time flies by. For a thorough visit, plan at around 4 to 6h.

Amazing exhibition. Hugh collection of model boats. And special theme areas about maritime life, clima, logistics and submarines. Worth a visit.

Beautiful museum. It's really well organized and complete. It explores all the aspect of navigation in a accurate way. Take your time to visit this museum, there are 10 floors really rich of contents. The only negative aspect is the absence of english descriptions in most of the items.

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.
