Monte Cassino

Greetings ....
Assuming travel will take place this fall, could someone recommended a guide for the history of the area including visiting the Monastery.
Many thanks,
jane

Unusually for wiki, they have a good entry for Monte Cassino and its history:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monte_Cassino

The abbey has its own website:

Thank you. I have checked those sites but seem to recall a recommendation for a guide. Will continue to search while stuck at home!

Try the Michelin Green Guide. for Italy. I used that. The guide offers a half page description for the Abbey and the Museum.

We visited Montecassino on a beautiful fall day a few years ago. To our surprise, there were only a handful of other people at the church. And, for 90 minutes, we had the museum entirely to ourselves. If you check the website provided above, you will see that you can arrange a private guided tour for 35E. The museum was fabulous; the grounds overlook the valley and the Polish War Cemetery below. ×
