Itinerary

  • Day 1

    Fly to Rome and transfer to our overnight hotel in the Pomezia area.

  • Day 2 - Anzio

    We travel to nearby Anzio. The Anzio landings in January 1944 were designed to by-pass 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 (recommended donation of a minimum €2pp), see the British War Cemeteries and see where the Allies landed. After lunch, we visit the Sicly-Rome American War Cemetery and Visitors' Centre, before travelling to our hotel in Cassino for three nights.

    This morning we journey to the French Cemetery at Venafro and then to San Pietro, a small village in the crucial Mignano Gap, where American forces fought a tough battle in 1943. This is now a preserved battlefield site and we explore the ruins. While in San Pietro we visit the local war museum, please note there is an entrance fee of approx. €5per person.
