As days go by, many of the most beautiful medieval burgs in Italy will be visited, from Acquafondata to Sant’Elia Fiumerapido, to the awesome Cassino with its Abbey. The bombing that destroyed a good part of this ancient religious building, killing soldiers and monks alike, is just another shameful mishap of the battles that took place in this area for long months.
The arrival has been set over the Garigliano river that divides the Lazio region from Campania: crossing this river, in fact, there’s the Tyrrhenian sea.
The Gustav line journey lasts 9 days. The participants will ride for about 25/30 km per day and only the 15% of the whole route will be paved. While the first two and the last two stops will be pretty easy, the rest of the trip will be a bit more difficult because of the mountain paths. That’s the reason why it’s important that the participants are a bit more experienced to take part to this long adventure.
