We love the grass area where our dog can run free and we can spend a nice day in the sun.

It is always great to revisit this restaurant, their Lamb in Wine Sauce is by far my favorite lamb dish anywhere. It is tender, juicy, and the taste of the wine sauce and the spices permeates the lamb, making it absolutely delicious. I am looking forward for the restaurant to be open for visits again, in the mean time a take away of their fantastic terracota pots is an excellent option as well!

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.
