Montecassino Abbey, Gaeta and Terracina Private Day Tour from Rome with Lunch

This tour is for "outside" the usual touristic areas. The Abbey of Montecassino is one of the most famous Abbeys in the world. In 529 Saint Benedict chose this mountain to build his monastery. In February the Abbey 1944 a bombardment almost flatted it. According to a legend, the temple of Jerusalem has been found to cause three deep cracks in the rock of today. On the top of this promontory stands the Sanctuary of the SS. Trinity. At the left side of the church, linked to other stories and relevant personalities, linked to other stories and relevant personalities.<br><br>The temple, or Roman sanctuary, above Terracina dates back to the fourth century BC. The complex is large and spectacularly-situated, dominating the shoreline and sea. The sanctuary has been assumed to have been dedicated to Jupiter, although Venus has been another suggestion.<br>

I am writing this review in English because I feel the amphitheater and the small museum of Cassino deserve to be better known not only among Italians but by art lovers from abroad as well. I myself live in Naples, barely an hour and a half from the site, but had never heard of it. The amphitheater is quite well preserved , situated outside the wall of ancient Casinum, and it can be easily reached by walking along the Roman road that borders the wall. It is believed to have accommodated an audience of 4500, but I guess that if the tiers whose pieces are scattered around were restored, it would show a greater capacity. In a very unusual position, inside the town’s wall, is the majestic tomb of Ummidia Quadratilla, recalling a Greek tholos. An awesome monument in celebration of a woman, deserving by itself the whole trip. The amphitheater and the tomb date back to late Republican age (late 1st century B.C to early first century A.D.) while the museum displays exhibits from the ninth century B.C. down to the Roman Empire, showing that the Cassino area was populated by a number of cultural groups in the course of time. Last but not least, a big thank you to the kind ladies who , despite being on duty on a hot humid June Sunday, supplied us with a great deal of helpful information so that we could make the best of our visit.

Loved the multiple types of exhibits, in the museum, in the lapidarium and on the archeological site. A lot of well-preserved statues, inscriptions and pottery. The archeological site is huge and complex, it’s spread out so be careful not to miss any of it (I missed the thetre). I recommend wearing comfy shoes(sneakers), so you can fully explore it. The price is really symbolic (2 euros for adults ober 26) for the amount and quality of the exhibits.

We were very lucky as it was very quiet when we visited. The car park was right next to the abbey and only cost €3 for the car. Thanks there was no charge for access to the abbey,which was a surprise.Id you want a guided tour,it çosts €5 per head if there are 6 of you or alternatively you have to pay the full €30. The Abbey is very nice to discover by yourself and make sure you walk up the stairs to the church and then go down into the beautiful crypt. We paid an extra.€3 each to see the WWII exhibition. Beautiful views from the to of the mountain. If you are visiting independently,make sure you also make time to visit the museum and amphitheatre which can be found.on the road going up to the Abbey.
