About
Museo storico diffuso "Percorso della memoria": un sito straordinario dove la storia d'Italia si tocca con mano, dai drammi della seconda guerra mondiale fino al fantomatico rifugio antiatomico del Presidente della Repubblica edificato durante la guerra fredda. Visite guidate su prenotazione, all' interno dei rifugi antiaerei creati da Mussolini per il governo italiano e che tra il 1943 e il 1944 furono sede del Comando Supremo nazista della Wermacht di Kesselring durante i dieci mesi più drammatici della seconda guerra mondiale. La visita conduce il gruppo in un crescendo di drammaticità e patos fino al bunker antiatomico del Presidente della Repubblica e del Governo Italiano realizzato durante la guerra fredda a 300 metri sotto la roccia! Visita media 2 ore, consigliati abiti comodi e caldi (temperatura interna 10-12°). Prenotazione obbligatoria. Aperto tutte le domeniche, mentre nei giorni feriali è richiesto un gruppo minimo di 10 persone con orario da concordare.

A piece of story to visit. The internal tour is well organized ad it lasts more or less 3 hours. The guide is very prepared, friendly and polite.
The temperature inside the bunker is cold (10- 12 Celsius degree) so a jacket is necessary.
1,5 h from Rome. The car is recommended.
It’s necessary to book the tour and it is cheap (10 €)

Banker Soratte is worth the visit and is only a short drive from Rome. Really knowledgeable and passionate guide provided history about the bunker's use during both ww2 and the cold war. Would highly recommend.

Very interesting place but book The tour on advance!
Jul 2019 • Solo
I did not know to book a visit on advance. One group was inside the mountain and the wait would have taken two hours which I unfortunately did not have. The staff was VERY nice and they work voluntarely for the site. Museum was closed but I got a short peek inside it from the the nice staff. So plan in advance and visit the place on Sundays 10:30 AM when the first group starts. Check the opening hours as they are open only on specific Sundays.

History in a time capsule

One of the most engaging WWII locations in Italy. The tour is only in Italian but it seems someone will translate for you. See where Kesselring commanded the German Forces. There is still the chance that the Germans did not recover all the Gold they buried there. You will enjloy the sights from atop the mountain. I've be going here for over 50 years and I never get tired of uncovering fascinating facts.

Great way to spend two hours in the cool mountain. Lots to see but no English spoken throughout. You can still get the gist from early engineering, to Mussolini, Kesselring and through the Cold War and the nuclear threat. Sherman tanks, ballistic missiles, cracking views and a lovely village to boot! Shop selling memorabilia but no cafe. All in all a good day. Take a torch and kids will be pretty bored as our guide knows his stuff but can talk for Italy. Enjoy!

A must visit for those interested in WW2 and the Cold War!

This was absolutely amazing!! If you like history, than this is your place. Our guide and President of the Associazione Bunker Soratte, Gregory who is very knowledgeable and passionate about the subject, gave us an excellent tour of the place in English. Would definitely recommend it and by visiting you would be helping the volunteers who are restoring and opening these bunkers to the public.

This was a fascinating place to visit but would have been so much better if there had been an audio guide in English available. The most we learnt was from a very kind English speaking Italian fellow visitor who filled us in after the tour.
Just be aware in advance that there is zero English spoken on the tour.

If you are into history, especially WW 2 history, then this is a must stop. The setting/area is beautiful to observe from the bunker area. We went this weekend which is the Bombing weekend and also featured a limited number of re en-actors with some operational vehicles. All of that aspect were first class.

The tour is in Italian without English handouts. It takes about 1.5 hours and expect it to be a little cool in the bunker, Lighting is minimal so watch your step. We really loved the way it is presented, ie, rather rustic and it encompasses WW-2, areas with debris still around, Cold War bunker areas etc. We found this much more authentic and representative of the "real world" than lets says visiting the Maginot Line.

Best. Tour. Ever.

My boyfriend and I are big history buffs so I decided to book a private tour for us when in Italy. We were honestly blown away from how amazing it was. Gregory Paolucci himself gave us the tour and even showed us things he was currently working on. This was definitely something that had us mind blown and happy about for days after the tour. Highly recommended!!!!
