First World War in the Dolomites: one day in via ferrata at the Garda Lake
If you have a short time (only one day) and your period is not in summer this proposal is for you! The via Ferrata Susatti at the mount Cima Capi is amazing and easy via ferrata directly at the Garda Lake.
This was the war front line that cuts the major lake of Italy. The particular micro clima of this part of the Dolomites with the low height of the mountain, permit to climb this via ferrata all seasons of the year.
The easy access at the Dolomites is the focal point of my town: Bolzano "the door of the Dolomites". Lear the best combination for your arrival and departure flight and the transfers by train or rental car, but... more important: ask me every logistical info you need. I'm here to help you to find the best solution.

The day before (your arrive)
Depending where you arrive, generally you will land in the airport of Venice or Milan or Bergamo or Innsbruck or Munich or..... it's indifferent! I will suggest you the best logistical system to arrive in Bolzano. train, bus, or taxi.
When you will arrive in Bolzano we have a preparative briefing at the reception of your hotel on the evening. In this half hour meeting we will check all aspect of the next days tour.
YOUR CUSTOMIZED PROGRAM IN SHORT DESCRIPTION AND FACTS
1 hr walking approach, 2 hrs climbint to the top, 1 hr climb down to the rifugio, 1,15 hr walk back to the town (parking)
Total time approx: 5-6 hrs
The video that you can see in my YouTube channel was shot in december, the participants was a group of students of the university of Bolzano.
This tour is very interesting and we can extend it, after the via ferrata, with the visit of many bunkers in optimal conditions along the ridge after the summit of Cima Capi.
Along the descense we will find on our way the characteristic Rifugio of Cima Capi (private building of the local hunter association) where we can drink a coffe and eat our lunch packet in a fantastic panorama on the Garda Lake.
The days before and/or after you can visit the amazing lake Garda areas, no bad idea!
