World War 2 - The Battle For Rome Tour Description

To begin this World War 2 tour experiencing the Battle For Rome, you head south from Rome to the ancient Abbey of Monte Cassino, site of one of the toughest and most controversial battles of the Second World War. From the terraces of the rebuilt Abbey we look out over the mountains and valleys where the five month long battle took place.

A short distance from the Abbey we visit the Polish cemetery, a monument to the Polish forces whose flag flying over the ruins of the Abbey finally signalled the end of the Battle of Monte Cassino.

Heading back down to the valley you then visit the British Commonwealth Cemetery where you will be fascinated to see the global nature of the battle for Monte Cassino.

Leaving Cassino we cross the mountains towards the coast and descend into the Pontine Marshes. Here we visit one of the largest collections of World War Two military vehicles to be found in Europe. Many of these original vehicles have been used as props for films and television series about the war, including Oscar winners "Life is Beautiful" and "The English Patient".

Our next stop is the Sicily Rome American Cemetery in Nettuno near the site of the Anzio Landings, where thousands of allied troops came ashore on the beaches in an attempt to outflank the defenders of Monte Cassino. From Nettuno we travel the short distance to Anzio to visit the Anzio Beachhead Museum. Anzio is our last stop of the tour and we spend some time on the beach before travelling back into Rome following in the footsteps of of the Allied forces who broke out of the Anzio Beach head and finally entered the city.

Our Guides Were Wonderful.

Both James and Isabella were wonderful guides on our tours. They were very knowledgeable and made the experience more meaningful. My husband and I will definitely recommend Eternal City tours to anyone who is visiting.

Holy Doors Jubilee tour

Our tour guide was Blitch Vizioli...what an amazing man...the tour was everything we had hoped for...we travelled from Australia to come to Rome for this trip of a life to time to experience the Jubilee of Mercy and the Closing of the Holy Doors of the Basilica of St. Peter's...nothing was too much for Blitch..he was well versed in the Catholic faith...no questions were out of his depth he went above and beyond to ensure that no stone was left unturned...spiritually this tour was everything and then much more because of his efforts...this day was the highlight of our trip...he exceeded our expectations by supplying us with tickets to the mass on Sunday that he obtained from the Swiss guards ...we are truly in his debt..thank you again I would have no hesitations in dealing with this company on future tours...absolutely amazing

6/5 Stars!

Nothing too much can be said of this company. When everything is just so perfect. I am quite a particular traveller. I like things to go MY way. Eternal did exactly just that. I wanted to have a fully custom, fully flexible tour, they provided it. They sent two super knowledgable guides, that followed our pace. Often tour are very single dimension. They talk you listen, I guess bcs of my small sized group it became they talk, I ask, they answer. Tom replied my emails super fast too! I like that. I feel that I am being taken care of. Like the title says: 6 of 5 stars. To other Travellers, look no more, these are the right guides for Rome and the Vatican.

Like Having a Personalized High Quality PBS Tour

We booked a Tour that included a visit to all four major basilicas. Our guide was James Good and my wife and I were absolutely delighted and thrilled with the quality, care and professionalism we experienced with Eternal City Tours. James was extremely knowledgeable and more importantly was very friendly and personable throughout the tour. As someone who lives in Rome, he shared not only his encyclopedic knowledge of the basilicas but also insights to living in Rome. We made a coffee stop at Panella l'Arte del Pane where we were treated like friends hanks to a James' connections. He also gave us a number of very useful recommendations to improve our visit and stay in Rome. We enjoyed spending time with him and commend Eternal City Tours for delivering on their promise of a high quality experience.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

The best way to see Rome

Having been to Rome a few times before, our group was looking to tour Villa D'Este, Hadrian's Villa and the Catacombs of St. Callixtus with guides who offered a truly Christian perspective. And this is exactly what we found with Eternal City Tours.
Our group of 10 came from diverse backgrounds, but everyone was riveted by the fountains of information flowing in our direction.Our guides, Blitch and James were not only marvelously well-informed and passionate, they were also extremely patient!
I strongly recommend Eternal City Tours for those who want to delve more deeply into the wonders of Rome.

Chad was the best we've ever had!

Chad Deffler was the best guide we have ever had. We have traveled quite a lot in recent years and used a lot of guides. Chad was able to explain and answer all questions with absolute accuracy and clarity. His knowledge of Rome, religious history, and philosophy was incredible. All this was done in a manner that kept the tour interesting.

Our guide Matthew was fantastic!

Hello,
Holy Doors Tour - 26th September 2016
Our guide Matthew was fantastic. He went the extra mile to explain and show us everything.
He didn't rush us and gave us ample opportunity to ask questions.
Many thanks to him, Tour of the Holy Doors was our reason to visit Rome and he made it all worthwhile.
We will definitely book with Eternal City tours again and request Matthew to be our Guide.
One in a million. Please let him know we appreciated his company and knowledge and hope to meet him again with Eternal City Tours.
