Location

Anzio

During 1944 hundreds of thousands of troops were fighting along just 16 miles of front.  The name Monte Cassino comes from a strategically well placed historic hilltop which had been left unoccupied by the Germans and Anzio is the port close to the landings. You will visit battlegrounds, cemeteries, the beaches and Anzio, now a colourful and charming harbour town.
