Rome and Lazio


The region of Lazio in central Italy was the scene of heavy fighting during WWII: here the battles of Monte Cassino and Anzio were fought before the Allies could capture the capital of Rome. Recall the landings of Anzio and the Battle of Anzio at the Beachhead Museum. Climb to the mountaintop of Cassino to explore Montecassino Abbey, badly damaged in WWII and then rebuilt to its original plans. Discover a number of war cemeteries and memorials that serve as remembrance sites for the many Polish, American and British soldiers who fell in combat. In the Eternal City of Rome, you will find iconic historical wonders such as the Colosseum and Pantheon, as well as museums to help you better comprehend Italy’s history. Among them, the Historical Museum of the Liberation was built in the building of a former prison where over 2,000 people were detained, interrogated and tortured during WWII.
