Built on the site of a sixth-century monastery, Monte Cassino was designed by some of southeastern Europe's finest artists before its papal consecration in 1041. The abbey has been restored since its destruction in 1944 during the Battle of Monte Cassino. View relics, mosaics, manuscripts, and other artifacts as you wander the hallways and courtyards. The hike to the monastery, which is on a 520 m (1,706 ft) high hill, is extremely steep. Plan to take public transportation to the top.

  • We had a historian who took us around WW2 historical areas and then finished up at the monastery. Her knowledge was phenomenal. Beautiful building. Views of surrounding areas is stunning.

  • One of the places to be visited. Historical place with long history and devastating demolish during WWII. The beauty is breathtaking, the view too. Highly recommend to be visited. I will do again.
  • During the second world war, the british army had ordnance to try out and Monte Cassino was chosen as the recipient. Reports were received that all the Germans had left, but the british decided to destroy the abbey and the town anyway.When the truth came out,the lblame was put on a junior officer in order to whitewash the senior officers who were truly responsible for needless civilian deaths. The Abbey was rebuilt as it had been many times before
