Private Accessible Tour of Montecassino
This day will be dedicated to the visit of the Montecassino Area, the headquarters of the first German paratrooper division.
It is one of the most important sites of the Gustav Line. The Winter Line was composed of a series of German military fortifications in Italy, built during World War II by the Organisation Todt. The main line of the fortification, called the Gustav Line, ran across Italy from the north side of River Garigliano to the Tyrrhenian Sea in the west, through the Appennines, to the mouth of the Sangro River on the Adriatic Sea in the east.
The center of the line, where it crossed the main route in the north of Rome (Highway 6), was around the mountains, behind the town of Cassino. Originally, Montecassino had an old abbey sitting on top of it, and it dominated the entrance to the Liri valley. Monte Cairo provided the defenders with a clear view of any potential attackers.
The Battle of Monte Cassino (also known as the Battle for Rome and the Battle for Cassino) was a costly series of four battles during World War II, fought by the Allies. They wanted to break through the Winter Line and seize Rome. The Abbey of Montecassino was located on the peak of the mountain, which means it was impossible for the allied troops to reach the site without destroying the abbey by bombing it.
