Montecassino Abbey Private Tour from Naples

Montecassino Abbey Private Tour from Naples

The breathtaking monastery was established by Saint Benedict 1,500 years ago, making it one of Europe's oldest monasteries

The beautiful Abbey of Montecassino is well worth a visit...

Dramatically located in the mountains of Lazio, this breathtaking abbey was the first monastery of the Benedectine Order.

Few years later, Montecassino Abbey has experienced more than its fair share of traumatic events. The abbey was sacked by invading Lombards and the residing monks fled to Rome. During World War II, the abbey was the site of one of the most tragic battles of the European theater of the war. That time abbey was almost completely destroyed. It was totally rebuilt after the war and is now a major destination for tourists, pilgrims and history buffs.

At the moment it is a working monastery and active pilgrimage site, housing the remains of Saint Benedict and his twin sister, Saint Scholastica, which have managed to survive the events of the abbey’s long history. 

Montecassino Abbey (Abbazia di Montecassino) is located about 100 km (63 miles) from Naples. It is open every day; hours vary by season. The church is closed during mass, though visitors are welcome to attend the mass. In winter, the museum is only open on Sundays. Guests are asked to wear appropriate church clothing and to not eat or drink while inside.
