American Cemetery

Peaceful, quiet and distinguished. Paid our respects to these brave soldiers. Cemetery is beautifully maintained and a lovely non-denominational chapel on the grounds.

This immaculately maintained cemetery is a quiet tribute to those allied troups who sacrificed their lives at the end of WWII.

This was a highlight in a small town in France to American soldiers who helped liberate France. We were in a group of 43 Americans including one WWII veteran who wore his cap. The cemetery officials and guide speak perfect English and are proud of the Americans and the well groomed cemetery and chapel and fountain and wall of heroes.... More

A very moving military cemetery as a memorial to the brave service people who came to lands afar and fight for Freedom and Liberty but never went home. Well worth an hour of your time.

Our visit to the Draguignan WW II Cemetery was a highlight from our recent trip to Southern France. The tour given by the curator on duty was beyond our expectation. It not only fulfilled an appreciation of those who sacrificed their lives but also added a thorough understanding of the Allies invasion strategy during this phase of the war. However,... More

We were impressed with the care provided to maintain this beautiful yet somber memorial. The visit brought tears to my eyes and should not me missed. If only we, as a nation, could learn enough from places like this to do better to prevent unnecessary war and the casualties which result. Every American should visit out of respect for the... More

Having taken our US friends to Normandy we then travelled on the TGV to Nice and stayed in Ste. Maxime near St. Tropez. Luckily having some wartime photographs we discovered her father's beach at St. Raphael with a huge monument. We just had to find the fallen and did so at Draguignan. The staff were very helpful in finding graves... More
