“Thought provoking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

We were visiting nettuno and hadn't planned to visit the cemetery but were very pleased we did. It was a moving, calm place. Very informing signs and the maps at the memorial were a good visual. Our young son asked lots of questions and made us discuss the war and the people resting there. Very worthwhile.

“This place is beautiful....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

Pictures don't do it justice. I could have spent an entire day here. We found a grocery store across the street called PAM. We bought some great ham, a piece of peccorino cheese, a baguette, a piece of lemon flavored cheesecake and two splits of wine all for ten euros. There are benches all along the main thoroughfare but they were in the sun so we went to the back on the right side and found a nice bench by the fountain. My wife and I ate what we had bought at PAM in quiet solitude listening to birds and the fountain. It was my way appreciating the sacrafices that were made in WWII. We were happy to see such a beautiful place for our soldiers to rest but also saddened for their families. The train ride from Rome is easy and second class is 3.5 euros each way. Make time to visit this cemetery. You will be glad you did for the rest of your life.

“A moving visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

As part of a tour around the Anzio battlefield, it was of course appropriate that we visited here. It's a tranquil setting nd this made it quite a moving experience here. The interpretation sections were also one of the best ways to understand the whole picture of what happened in the Italy campaign.

“a gentle place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

The Anzio landings are a famous point in history. This cemetery is an elegant memorial.

After visiting (in '97) I read a history of the landings written from General Clark's point of view. Although a one sided history the area from here to MonteCassino is now indelibly on my mind.
(Having said that it's quite a walk from Nettuno and easy to get turned around.)

This is a graceful spot for dignified reflection.

“Fantastic Tribute”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

What a tribute to our troops! Well kept and well designed. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. Also, a nice job was done showing what happened in Italy during the war.
