The Gustav Line

 

The Winter Line was a series of German military fortifications in Italy, constructed during World War II by Organisation Todt. The main line of fortification, called the Gustav Line, ran across Italy from just north of where the Garigliano River flows into the Tyrrhenian Sea in the west, through the Apennine Mountains to the mouth of the Sangro River on the Adriatic Sea in the east. The center of the line, where it crossed the main route north to Rome (Highway 6) which followed the Liri valley, was anchored around the mountains behind the town of Cassino including Monte Cassino, which had an old abbey sitting atop it and which dominated the entrance to the Liri valley, and Monte Cairo which gave the defenders clear observation of any potential attackers. On the western side of the Apennines there were two subsidiary lines: the Bernhardt Line in front of the main Gustav positions and the Adolf Hitler Line some 5 miles to the rear. The Winter line was fortified with gun pits, concrete bunkers, turreted machine-gun emplacements, barbed-wire and minefields. It was the strongest of the German defensive lines south of Rome. About 15 German divisions were employed in the defence.

  Cassino lies in Southern Latium in the province of Frosinone, also known as  Ciociaria.

Ciociaria  is the  name of an italian region, strategically situated in the heart of Italy, between Rome and Naples. It’s the ideal starting point to explore the whole Country. The province of Frosinone, called Ciociaria (cho-cha-REE-a), is not very well known among tourists, because is "off the beaten track”, but this land rewards generously its visitors with unspoilted nature, magnificent abbeys, archaeological treasures, genuine food and deep traditions.  My aim is to design a travel experience so that you may discover and share with your family and friends the beauty, warmth and culture of this extraordinary area. A customized trip plan will be developed based on your interests, timeframe and budget.  Ciociaria is the region where I was born, I came back here ten years ago, after a long time abroad, and today my goal is to valorize my province, promote its heritage and share with the people the knowledge of its hidden treasures. I will help you find those areas less traveled; so that you can experience the Authentic Italy
