“Honor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

After serving in the US Military for 22 years, it was my honor to visit and pay my respects. If you you are traveling and are a US citizen then you should visit the Veterans Memorials that are overseas, without the sacrifices of the heros buried in them, we would not be visiting these countries the way we do.

“A Must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2011

The cemetery is beautiful and well maintained. It has a nice chapel, with a memorial for the unknown solidiers--all four walls are covered with names. The ceiling is spectacular; it artistically depicts the stars (the constellations) as they were on the exact time of the Allied landing.

It is a good 20 minute walk from the train station (further from the beach). Definitely worth the trip.

“Amazing and peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2008

It may seem odd to visit a cemetery but the war cemeteries in Italy are beautiful locations. This location is just beyond the bustle of Nettuno, easy walk from the beach area.

The landscape and architecture are worth a visit and walking amongst the graves you will ponder the sacrifices these people made.

The staff on site is very helpful if you are looking for friends or family who are buried here.
