During the First World War, Rovereto had unfortunately found itself in the center of the Italo-Hapsburg front. Millions dead, families ruined, misery. From that experience, the idea was born to build a huge bell whose bronze would be derived from the fusion of the cannons of 19 nations participating in the First World War. Today the same bronze sounds. It sounds to us all through this bell, whose 100 rings rhythmically spread across the valley at 9 pm each night in memory and in constant alert to keep high attention to any form of violence that can lead to wars among people. It was the Roveretan priest Don Antonio Rossaro who thought of this famous symbol, the “Bell of the Fallen”, the fourth bell in the world for its size whose sound covers large distances. The largest in Italy.
We assure you that in the evening on the Miravalle Hill and listening closely to the bell while watching its slow swinging is a very strong and intense emotion. This short tour will let you know and appreciate this particularity that characterizes the City of Rovereto and has made it known all over the world.
At the end of the tour we will stop to appreciate together good craft beers, wines and local dishes in a typical restaurant in Rovereto. On the return to departure place, headlamps supplied with LEDs will be supplied. Bike Shuttle service from / to Alto Garda.
Not particularly difficult and challenging. E-Bikes suggested to enjoy the spirit of the tour better.
