We have an interest in WWII history- my father served and my husband's family lost family in the war. We spent 3 weeks in Italy visiting some locations where the war had an impact. As with other US military cemeteries, it is quite sobering, beautiful,...More

We visited here on our first full day in Italy. I knew nothing about the Allied Campaign in Italy, so this was a huge learning experience for me. Because of this visit, we also visited the Florence American Cemetery, which is also wonderful. Highly recommended!

Great place for walking and a lesson in history. Beautifully landscaped and presentation. I would recommend anyone to take an hour there to walk around and explore.

Each war cemetery seems to have a philosophy behind it depending on the country it represents. The American cemeteries that I've visited all over Europe are like entering a beautiful public park that is quiet and peaceful. Further inside the rolling hills of small white...More

I can't help you with the public transport question, but there are no admission costs. Very nice visitor center just inside the cemetery gates on the right that doubles as an informative museum. Enjoy your visit!

My husband and I will be taking the train from Rome on 5/28/2017 for the Memorial Day service. I have read that you can take a taxi from the train station to the cemetery, but I do not have any information for taxi service in Nettuno. My husband is 76 and can not walk very far due to hip and leg problems. What are my choices for transportation to the cemetery? (my uncle is buried there and I have wanted to see his grave for a long time. Thank you
