Cultural Event: Mausoleum of Fosse Ardeatine

Guided tour of the Mausoleum of Fosse Ardeatine
Saturday November 13th

The “Ardeatine caves” was the location of a terrible massacre during the Nazi occupation of Rome in 1944. Probably the most well-known and tragic event of the German occupation during WWII, the Ardeatine Caves are an interesting though gruesome place to learn about the city occupation and resistance and to pay homage to the victims. Today, the Caves are both a mausoleum and a museum. It is not an easy visit, but one worth doing.

Our guided tour will last approx. 1.5 hours.  Radios can be rented inside the Museum for €1.50 per person.  We will start promptly at 10.30am, therefore please arrange to arrive by 10.20am. The meeting point is directly at the entrance on Via Ardeatina 174.  Parking is available nearby.
