Fosse Ardeatine



NileGuide Expert Says:

A trip to this cave is an emotional voyage. When the Italian Resistance set off a bomb that killed German soldiers during WWII, Adolf Hitler was rumored to have ordered 100 Italians shot for each German killed. Although it would be expected that the prisoners were primarily Jewish, only 75 of the 335 were Jewish. The rest were either residents of the area where the bomb went off or members of the Italian Resistance involved in fending off the Nazis. Be prepared for a shock of WWII reality.
