Excellent place to feel the presence of our past. I have visited several of the American cemeteries over seas and this is a great choice. Take in the scenery and absorb some history. Makes me proud to be an American!

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.
