You can start hiking today from Lagazuoi or by taking the cable car to Passo Falzarego for an easier day. The trailhead at Falzarego is on the south side of the road opposite the cable car station, to your left of the small gift shop at the back of the parking lot.
The Cinque Torri (5 towers) are a rugged, rocky area particularly known for their WWI relics. This was the scene of much trench fighting during the war, and as you walk through the towers, you’ll pass explanatory signs and even some displays of mock soldiers. Beyond that, though, it’s also a pretty area, with lots of criss-crossing trails, pretty views, and a number of well-known huts that serve very good food. We suggest the Averau hut for lunch.
The huts and lifts in this area tend to stay open later in September, making it a particularly good choice for late-season hiking.
