Everyone visiting Florence or its surroundings should visit this place. Our history and that of Italy is bonded by the sacrifice many have made to fight for freedom. Thank you for preserving this monument celebrating our universal commitment to freedom.

This is a stunning and beautiful tribute to our fallen heroes. It made us miss our fathers very much and made for very strong emotions and more than a few tears. We must never forget what our fathers went through to protect our freedom.

Highly recommend this side trip when in or near Florence. Peaceful, moving, educational, and a beautiful resting place. The marble operations maps at the top of the slope depict WW II campaigns from Sicily to northern Italy. The grounds are impeccably maintained.

We made a quick stop while traveling from Florence to San Gimignano. It was absolutely worth it. The grounds are beautifully manicured with wide walkways. You hear the sound of the nearby river, the wind in the trees, and the birds singing. It's moving to...More

The cemetery is very close to Florence (less than 10 miles). We had arranged a private tour and our tour guide made the stop on the way to the Chianti wineries. You could take a taxi or the bus.
