It was just Beautiful could not have had a better day. The sun was shinning from the start to the end. The town of Cassino was also beautiful and well worth the visit

It's a very long steep walk There are no footpaths and with a windy road and traffic I would not recommend it We didn't see anyone walk up there You could always catch a taxi one way and bus back
