Monte Cassino, Cassino

4.5
#1 of 87 in Things to do in Province of Frosinone
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.

  • I've been here 15 years ago and now in 2017 and I must say the emotion and beauty Dell'Abbazia di Montecassino remains indisputable. If you walk around here you can't skip this destination that deserves to be seen. With the cost of €5 you can visit a beautiful Museum rich in paintings and books in addition to papal clothes amphorae and WWII artefacts etc etc.

  • Beautiful and evocative. Architecturally impressive structure is very interesting from an artistic point of view. We were lucky enough to find ourselves in church during Vespers with Gregorian chants of the monks so beautiful and perfect to think that this is a recording ... were they live. Extraordinary!

  • En route to the sea with family, we stopped in Cassino. A must, even though we were on the hair with the closing times, a visit to the Abbey. Beautiful, with a remarkable view of the cloisters and well kept. Nice also the Interior of the Church and the crypt.
