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 four month long battle took place.

A short distance from the Abbey you will 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 you 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".

You arrive on the coast at Nettuno, where most of the American forces came ashore during the Anzio Landings, and then you head to the Sicily Rome American Cemetery where nearly eight thousand American war dead are buried.

From Nettuno you will travel the short distance to Anzio to visit the Anzio Beachhead Museum. Leaving Anzio you travel back into Rome following in the footsteps of of the Allied forces, from their breakout from the Anzio Beachhead to their triumphal entry into the Eternal city, where the end of World War 2s' Battle for Rome was greeted with scenes of mass jubilation

James is Amazing

Spent the day yesterday with James @Anzio and Monte Cassino, and had a great time. James is MONEY!!!! Really knowledgeable in the subject and has a great passion for history in general. Your company, I believe, is on to something unique, and I hope you continue to pursue and market this. A very special experience, particularly at the museums. Thanks, Chris
