You can park right next to it. Monument itself is closed, but the chapel in the basement seems to be open in the mornings and is definitely worth a visit. Views from alongside monument across the harbour too.

Some years ago this monument was dedicated as Meomorial to The saylormen died in all the wars. Is a big helm in a strategic part of the beautifull Brindisi Port. There are some days of the week that you can visit sin e the top and Hav a wonderfull harbour view

Walk the stairs and enjoy a great view of Brindisi and the surrounding areas. As a museum or monument it is a bit dated. Some of the exebitions were closed and it all looked a bit run down. Visit the crypt downstairs , that was wort it. There is also a lift.

You can't miss this monument, whichever side of Brindisi you're in. Entrance is free although you'll have to be prepared to climb many steps to get to the top and enjoy the view (the lift only goes about half of the way and it takes about 10 minutes to get to the top by using the stairs). Unfortunately, many of... More

Not the most beautiful monument, made by Mussolini the first half of the last century, but a beautiful location overlooking the port of Brindisi

Great way to get a bird's eye view of Brindisi and Casale. there are stairs and an elevator to get you to the top of the monument where you can snap some great photos. There are several memorials along the way as you climb the stairs.
