Italian War Cemetery & Museum - Monte Cassino - Italy - World War II - European Tourist Guide - euro-t-guide.com
The Italian War Cemetery & Museum at Monte Cassino is located just a few kilometres south of the Cassino - on the SS6 road. After the Allied landing in southern Italy in 1943 - during World War II - the allied advances was stop at Monte Cassino. The high ground near the monastery turned out to be an almost impossible stronghold to conquer, so the "Battle of Monte Cassino" took a lot of lives - among these a large number of the Italian soldiers that were fighting together with the Allied forces. Just next to the cemetery there is a small World War II museum with both an in-door and an out-door exhibition.
