Monte Cassino, Cassino

(1,300+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Historic Site
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. Check online for details about religious services and special events. To visit Monte Cassino on your holiday in Cassino, and find out what else Cassino has to offer, use our Cassino trip generator.
