An "Italian route" is an easiest way to reach the summit of Mangart (2.679 m ASL) that requires no climbing equipment (a helmet may come handy though) or experience. There´re some "climbing" passages secured by steel ropes but it could be done just with some basic sure-footedness and essential caution.
There´s another route to ascend to the peak (a "Slovenian route") which can be classified as a proper "via ferrata". It could be done without climbing equipment but I wouldn't recommend to do that.
The starting point can be reached by car (6 EUR toll) and there´s a pretty good chalet on the plateau beneath the mountain serving local dishes and drinks.
