A life experience - such an amazing place. This experience is beautiful and so well done. It is fair to say this might be the most well manicured area in all of Italy. The US and Italy did this amazing job building this memorial - you will be moved!

We were amazed by this place! On our way from Rome to Pompei, we stopped here just because it was on the way and we are so glad we did. The visitor center has a video and displays describing the landing at Anzio and Nettuno with stories of some of the men and women who were there - very moving. The grounds are pristine with beautiful landscaping - so well cared for. The outdoor pavilion has a wall with names of those still missing as well as huge maps of the landings and some interactive components.
We had the opportunity to meet a 98 year old veteran who had served in the Pacific and was visiting because his brother had served in Italy and been part of the liberation.
Truly a hidden gem and so worth the time to visit!

A word of advice. If you're coming from Rome Termni by train, the train sometimes runs every hour sometimes every two hours. The day we were there it was running every two hours so it screwed up our schedule. Also, be advised there are no taxies at Nettuno Train Station to take you anywhere. I had read other reviews that indicated you could easily find a taxi---WRONG! Thankfully the cemetery is only a about a 15-20 minute walk. This is the third American Cemetery I have visited in Europe and just like the other two (Normandy and the Luxemborg American Cemetery) the place is an immaculate oasis of honor and beauty. The ABMC (American Battle Monuments Commission) who is tasked with maintaining these shrines to our brave dead, spare no expense to keep these places in absolute incredible condition. This is one government entity that is doing some good and in my humble opinion money well spent. 23 sets of brothers are buried here along with Medal of Honor recipients. If your in Rome, take an afternoon to hop on the train and go and honor these brave men who never came home. Also if you're a WWII buff like me, and think that Anzio would be cool to see, you can pretty much skip it. I was there and there are no memorials or anything else that would indicate the Anzio beaches once was a major landing area for American Troops. Spend your time at the American Cemetery and walk among the pristine white crosses and stars of David. Time very well spent indeed.

Honor. Courage. Sacrifice. These are some of the words that come to mind when I think of the Sicily-Rome American Cemetery in Nettuno, Italy. The American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC) deserves high praise for maintaining/creating this beautiful memorial. Perhaps it is best said.....
"But I ask of you: Do not hasten through Memorial Day. Take the time to remember the good souls whose memories are a blessing to you and your family. Take your children to our memorial parks and monuments. Teach them the values that lend meaning to our lives and to the life of our nation. Above all, take the time to honor our fellow Americans who have given their last full measure of devotion to our country and for the freedoms we cherish." -Gen. C. Powell

While visiting Rome, I took a cab down to Nettuno to locate the final resting place of an Uncle's best friend and comrade who lost his life during the Anzio invasion. What seemed like quite a commitment of time and effort was hugely rewarding once there. Beautiful, sacred, towering trees, the museum and exhibits explaining the history and invasions and beautiful statues made for a solemn but peaceful respite from the city.

I effortlessly found the grave of Luther Garrett thanks to the well preserved records and maintained graves and crosses. The experience of honoring him and his comrades on the soil where they gave their lives was overwhelming and powerful. I would not trade that afternoon for anything.

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 crosses and stars of David,row on row,are almost overpowering as you realize that each one was somebody's loved one,with dreams and plans for the future that were cut short. I agree that young people should visit,not for sorrow and easy tears,but to look at the ages of these soldiers,some of them no older than 18,who sacrificed their tomorrows for our today.

Just as the beaches of Normandy provide permanent reminders of our country's sacrifice during WW II, the beaches of Anzio left 8000 Americans dead and 3100 missing. This cemetery, just outside Anzio in the town of Nettuno, is a must for Americans visiting Italy. The white crosses and Stars of David are in a setting that is impeccably maintained, with a visitor center and free DVD's for home viewing. Especially moving was finding the name of my husband's uncle on the marble wall among the "Missing in Action." There are also British cemeteries in Anzio.

Finally got to visit this cemetery after the government sequester ended. It is beautifully maintained and seeing the nearly 4000 grave markers really drives home how dear the cost of freedom is, especially when considering this cemetery is for only one geographic area of the war. It's also interesting to see the "jobs" of those buried there and understand that many of the dead served in support roles like cook and mechanic. A must see if you are interested in selflessness and the high human cost of war.

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.

My father landed at Anzio during WW II so I wanted to visit the cemetery as a day trip from Rome. The cemetery is about an hour by train from Termini station. It was a leisurely train ride, stopping at the small towns between Rome and Nettuno. Get off at Nettuno, not Anzio. At this point, you are about a block from the water so you can also take a walk along the shoreline where there are restaurants and cafes. Once in Nettuno, just follow the small brown signs marked for the cemetery. It's about a 20 minute walk and you will see the cemetery directly across the street from a McDonald's! The visitor center is small but offers a beautiful, short documentary on the subject. The cemetery was absolutely beautiful and so peaceful - not a leaf out of place. A beautiful tribute to our soldiers and support staff who did not make it home.
