This five day tour explores the key battles in Anzio, Monte Cassino and San Pietro during 1943 & 1944.

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.

Day 1

Join your tour group at the Rome hotel this evening.

Day 2 > Anzio

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. (B, D)

Day 3 > Monte Cassino; Liri Valley

Today we look at the four battles for Cassino and start by travelling up onto the impressive Monte Cassino, with some stunning views. Here, we visit the Polish Cemetery and Visitors’ Centre and see the monastery. After lunch in Cassino, we visit Cassino War Cemetery and Memorial, the largest British and Commonwealth cemetery in Italy. We then look at the final battle for Cassino, in the Liri Valley and on the Hitler Line, before ending at the River Rapido, seeing the memorials. (B, D)

Day 4 > San Pietro; Italian and French War Cemeteries

This morning we journey to San Pietro, a small village in the crucial Mignano Gap, where American forces fought a tough battle in 1943.
