Full description
Hotel pick up and drop off is available on this tour. The Abbey of Montecassino is one of the most renowned in the world. In 529 St. Benedict chose this mountain to build a monastery that would have hosted himself and the monks who followed him from Subiaco. At this time, paganism was still present, but St. Benedict managed to turn this place into a well-structured Christian monastery full of dignity and purpose, prayer and work. Over the centuries the abbey has known both magnificence and destruction, and like a phoenix from fire 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 of wonderful manuscripts, others welcome guests who arrive in search of a moment of inner peace and serenity.  If you are visiting the Abbey, you might encounter some of the monks 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, with a guide to help you discover the city, its abbey and its places of memory.

Leonardo was excellent. He was friendly, personable and very attentive. My father is disabled and Leonardo made sure he was comfortable and even provided my dad with an arm to help him up and down the stairs. He also booked us lunch at a restaurant so we had no wait. Theresa was our guide at Montecassino and she was also very kind and accommodating for my father. Overall everything was great and personally tailored to us. I highly recommend.

Our driver was prompt, very friendly, offered to stop to grab a coffee before the drive began and even organized lunch at a nearby restaurant. The tour guide was informative but concise. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
