For a day trip further away from the most popular tourist attractions of the coast, let us take you to Cassino. A town which is half way between Rome and Naples, Cassino offers you the chance to be immersed in history. During World War II, Cassino was a key point for the German defensive line to block the Allied advance to Rome, which resulted in the town being bombarded several times and almost destroyed. Today, war cemeteries, the rebuilt Benedictine Monastery and a beautiful Roman theatre can be visited as well as the modern part of town where you can enjoy, of course, some mouth-watering local cuisine.
