You can catch a no 8 bus from outside Salerno railway station,this will take you past the cemetery,which will be on your left and the bus stop is just a little further along the road,also the return bus stop,the buses run every 40 minutes.I hope this will be of help to anyone who is planning on making a visit.

Visited because my great uncle Edwin Marsh Stockley is buried there. Died of a friendly fire incident on 8th September 1943. The graveyard is beautifully kept as are all those under the wargraves commission.

As an ex soldier I like to pay my respects to those who were not lucky enough to return home to their loved ones and lay in a foreign field far from home. They gave their lives, so I give them a few minutes of my time and by visiting these sites we ensure they remain open and well cared... More

If you have the opportunity, please pay a visit to the Salerno War Cemetery. It's out of town ion the way to Pontecagnano - unfortunately not very well known. A beautifully kept memorial ground and burial place for over a thousand young men who died during the Second World War when the Allies landed in SDslerno in 1944.

Immaculately maintained. A fitting tribute to all who fell serving their country. To visit and pay respects, and say a silent prayer to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice is the least you can do when visiting the area. Visitor book available to sign and give tribute.

This is only a small part of history of World War 2. Yes it's a cemetery as some say, but you see how many people from different countries sacrificed their lives for us. And this is only a small number who lost their lives. For me a chance to say thank you and say a prayer. Many men laid to... More

My last days before moving into my property I happened upon this and stopped and looked around. To me it is depressing to be at any cemetery and this was no exception; anywhere in the world there are war cemeteries and I would not even know how to rate this as the only cemeteries I ever visited that brought real...
