Anzio, Monte Cassino & San Pietro – Italian Campaign

It is estimated that during the Italian Campaign of World War Two, 60,000-70,000 Allied soldiers lost their lives. On this tour we look at some of the key battlefields of 1943 to 1944, in Anzio, Monte Cassino and San Pietro, where the fighting was tough and costly. We also visit war museums and cemeteries, plus, see the stunning views from Monte Cassino and the preserved San Pietro battlefield site.

We travel to nearby Anzio. The Anzio landings in January 1944 were designed to bypass the Germans at Cassino and advance rapidly on Rome, but it became one of the most static fronts of WW2. Here, we visit the Anzio War Museum, see the British War Cemeteries and see where the Allies landed. After lunch, we visit the Sicily-Rome American War Cemetery and Visitors’ Centre, before travelling to our hotel in Cassino for three nights.
