Tour description provided by Viator

Visit Montecassino, a place full of history, a city worship and meditation.
The Abbey of Montecassino is one of the most famous Abbeys in the world. In 529 St. Benedict chose this mountain to build a monastery that would have hosted him and those monks who followed him from Subiaco. Paganism was still present, but he managed to turn this place into a well-structured Christian monastery where everyone could have the dignity he deserved, through prayer and work.Over the centuries the abbey has known many times magnificence and destruction, and has always been reborn stronger from its ruins."Ora et Labora et Lege": this is the motto of the Rule of Saint Benedict that the monks still follow in their daily routine: some study in the library surrounded by ancient books, or do research in the archive on wonderful manuscripts, others welcome guests who they arrive in search of a moment of inner peace and serenity. And if you are visiting the Abbey, you might encounter some of them taking a walk in the cloisters before returning to their cells to pray in solitude, or to meet later for common prayer.Enjoy a comfortable journey from Rome to Montecassino, entrust us to discover the city, its abbey and its places of memory.
