So many lives lost, lines and lines of graves, arrayed over a hillside in a now peaceful valley. An excellent memorial at the top, with a beautiful chapel and detailed WWII historical murals. All maintained in immaculate condition. A visit to remember.

You cannot help but get emotional at this site. A lasting tribute to our fallen soldiers of WWII. The more than 4000 interred here as their final resting place is a place of honor and valor.

This US cemetery gave me a story of the sacrifices many young men have made for our world during WWII. This memorial is very well done and I was impressed at how they honored each soldier buried there on their birthdays. This really touched my heart. The caretaker was very knowledgeable about the soldiers and what battles they had fought.... More

I felt ashamed that though I'd been to Firenze many times before, I'd never taken the time to go visit the American Cemetery in Firenze until now. Guide books don't talk much about this and after visiting several of the American Cemeteries outside of the USA, I'd finally come to this one. Soldiers, sailors, and airmen, including some women are... More

Extremely well kept grounds. The ranger was very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. Was our second visit, but my sister' first. Very sobering experience.

Very moving site dedicated to those who fought to defeat fascism. One of many WWII sites in Italy. See recent guidebooks for descriptions of other cemeteries, monuments, and war museums.

Everyone from the U.S. visiting Florence should visit the Florence American Cemetery and Memorial which is the final resting place of nearly 4,500 U.S. servicemen. Most of those buried here are from the Fifth Army who died in the fighting that followed the capture of Rome in June 1944; others from the heavy fighting in the Apennines between then and... More

The setting is quite serine and very emotional. It is kept in marvelous condition by the Italian Government and the sacrifice of these men will always be remembered by virtue of this site.

The American cemetery was incredibly pristine, lovely, and full of emotion as we perused the writings on the walls, the church bells, the song in the air. Acres of our fallen, and a wall devoted to those who "sleep in unmarked graves." There wasn't a dry eye amongst us. Proud to be American.

The Memorial is very beautiful and a tranquil place for reflection on the sacrifice of so many to free Europe. Make sure you walk all the way to the main memorial to see the marble maps depicting the battles for Italy. In the welcoming center you will find memorial cards highlighting those who were killed each day. The memorial is... More
