Off the beaten path of Italy…..
*Monte Cassino monastery was constructed on an older pagan site, the temple of Apollo that crowned the hill.This sanctuary was the site of the Battle of Monte Cassino in 1944, where the building was destroyed by Allied bombing and rebuilt after the war. It is the home of the sacred relics of St. Benedict the patron Saint of Europe and the founder of western monasticism.
*Sperlonga: Where actors, artists, and writers once flocked to tiny Sperlonga—a white confection overlooking the impossibly blue Tyrrhenian Sea—for a soothing taste of la dolce vita. It is truly Italy's best-kept secret.
*Split Mountain: A breathtaking place that will steal your heart! According to religious tradition, it is called Split Mountain because the mountain split in three parts upon the death of Christ.
