Easy walking track around the Colle delle Benne where it was erected the Austrian fort from which it took its name. The route can be considered a nice walk to be made with the family. Kids can admire the military fortress erected in memory of the war that have characterized the first half of the '900.

The fortress is about 2 km from the centre of Levico Terme, placed on the top of the hill overlooking Lake Levico.

Also called Fort San Biagio, it was built by the Austro-Hungarians between 1880 and 1882.
