One of the most famous ex-cities of the world, Pompeii was destroyed in 79AD by the unexpected eruption of Vesuvius. In an incredibly short space of time the city was completely obliterated, submerged by a thick layer of volcanic ash that froze the last few moments of the lives of its citizens for all time.
Pompeii has fascinated generation after generation of archaeologists from all over the world. The gaps left in the solidified ash by the decomposing bodies of the city's unfortunate citizens were perfect impressions of their bodies. Thus, a simple dig through the ash reveals the everyday life of thousands of years ago, perfectly captured in negative, exposed to the eye, down to its most trivial and tragic details. Twisted bodies, caught in the moment of seeking shelter from the catastrophe raining down around
hem, have evoked the kind of enthusiasm amongst scholars and amateurs alike that is normally reserved for dinosaurs.

In World War II, the hill of Monte Cassino was part of a German defensive line guarding the approaches to Rome. Monte Cassino became the target of assault after assault by Allied troops, and was finally destroyed by air bombardment.
 The hill was captured at dreadful loss of life by the Polish Army and Italian refugees. After the war, the abbey was rebuilt to the original plans. Today, Monte Cassino is a working monastery and continues to be a pilgrimage site by virtue of the surviving relics of St. Benedict and St. Scholastica. It is also a popular tourist destination for its historical importance and its attractive buildings. The abbey sits atop a large hill, below which lies the city of Cassino. A vast Polish war cemetery covers a hillside across the valley, which can be easily seen from the abbey.

Fumone Castle  (X century) is of ancient origin. 15 minutes drive from Fiuggi

The castle is situated in the middle of a splendid medieval village, on a hill surrounded by woods and mountains in the heart of the Ciociaria region. The castle houses the highest hanging garden in Europe.
The structure of the Fumone castle is a typical military fortress of the Middle Ages. Set on top of a mountain, it is surrounded by mountainous chains and woods. Being inaccessible, the fortress sheltered for five centuries within its walls the enemies of the church.
The medieval village of Fumone today conserves its original structure surrounding the castle with a fascinating and unimaginable atmosphere. The buildings attached to the castle and all the houses still have their doors that open inwards; for such an important place could not allow weak points. built with criteria so that arrows could be fired against the enemy. Even the steep path from the Roman door was purposely built in order to make it easy to roll down burning balls of fire when needed and for defence reasons. Fumone therefore became an impossible fortress to take.
