Monte Cassino, Cassino

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.

  • This was an absolutely amazing experience. I heard od the abbey 12 years ago in a documentary, and have since wanted to visit. The abbey was one of the most beautiful churches I have seen. It is rich in history, and was a good teaching tool for my children when it comes to reverence. The gate monument and war museum were closed but it was still worth the trip. Definitely a have to on yor itinerary.
  • An amazing view. Notice that woman should be wear decently in order to enter
  • On a beautiful day the view is spectacular and the interior of the church beautiful
  • Famous hill with breathtaking sights from the upper parts.
  • Friendly staff, very clean, beautiful views and stunning rebuild!
