After the visit, we will have the opportunity to have lunch at the restaurant in Punta Serauta. We will continue our day by visiting the nearby war positions carved into the rock, guided by our Guide towards the famous Forcella V or the Serauta ridge (depending on the group’s level), where there are small, easy equipped sections on the rock (for this part, helmets, harnesses, and safety kits will also be provided).
