Paths through dramatic natural scenery, others of cultural and historical interest or spiritual significance, footpaths for easy walking or challenging routes for experienced mountaineers. They all intertwine to form the Path of Peace.
Like other great European routes, which connect places with a shared significance, this path links the places where the Great War left its mark amid the silence of a majestic and serene landscape. It runs from Passo del Tonale to the Marmolada and the entire route is more than 500 km long.

As can be gathered from the start and end points, those several hundred kilometres are comprised of many ascents and descents and cross landscapes as diverse as perennial
snows and glaciers and the gentle scenery of Lake Garda. To walk the whole length of it would take at least a month, but you can explore small sections of the Path of Peace. There are constant surprises in store for the walker who embarks on this path, which runs along former military roads and trenches, through First World War sites and spectacular scenery, passing fortifications and scenes of great battles, daring operations and heroic resistance, which have since achieved iconic status.

The long path was constructed between 1986 and 1990 by workers of the Consorzio Lavoro Ambiente and of the Servizio Protezione della Natura e Valorizzazione Ambientale (environmental agencies) of the Autonomous Province of Trento. It was later extended to the Altopiano dei Sette Comuni, including the Ortigara area. Systematic maintenance is currently underway to keep the whole length of the path open.

The path can be walked and some stretches of it can also be covered by mountain bike, taking care to keep to a restrained walking pace. To help you find your way and discover the main sites of interest, the path is way-marked with a dove symbol, white on wood, yellow on the rock.
