Our English-speaking chauffeur/guide will welcome you at your hotel or any other place of your convenience at 8.00am (suggested time). After, he will lead you south of Rome for a full day excursion in the mountain country of Cassino & Caserta.
Cassino, known for its famous Abbey founded in 529 AD, one of Europe’s oldest, by St. Benedict. The monastery located high above the town of Cassino, a top Monte Cassino, has been destroyed and rebuilt a total of 4 times during its 1500 year history -the last time following a massive World War II bombing. Today, you will find it returned, more than ever, to its ancient grandeur. The Monte Cassino Monastery is home to brilliant works of art and houses rare books in its library, archives and museum, which the Benedictine monks will proudly show you when visiting.
Caserta is on our to Naples; we will stop at the Caserta Palace, the so-called “Versailles” of Italy. It was built by King Charles, the Borbon, in the 18th century to give his Kingdom of Naples a new and fortified capital from naval invasions and similar military offensives. You will be astounded by the immensity of the palace’s 1,200 rooms, packed with precious artwork, as well as the property’s 5 hectares of carefully manicured gardens, 75m high waterfall, and numerous marble fountains.
Your English-speaking chauffeur/guide will suggest to you some local restaurants for lunch in the area. In the afternoon, you can explore some of the local highlights. After, we will drive back to Rome in order to arrive at around 6:00pm.
