Monte Cassino, Cassino

Must see · Specialty Museum · Religious 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. Using our world travel planner, Cassino attractions like Monte Cassino can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Beautiful historical place.. don't take a taxi ! they are con men. There is a bus service which is 1 euro each way.
  • Highly recommend seeing! One of the coolest places I’ve ever been to! Make sure you go through the whole area to not miss anything!
  • St. Benedict tomb and basilica were spectacular and a great little gift shop with all their herbal medicines.
  • A wonderful place to visit. Just remember to bring clothes that covers shoulders and knees. A big disappointment is that the museum don’t take credit card so bring cash if you don’t want to miss out. And don’t forget to visit the nearby memorial of the polish soldiers from the Second World War.
  • Historical place. Especially important for every Polish man.
