I felt ashamed that though I'd been to Firenze many times before, I'd never taken the time to go visit the American Cemetery in Firenze until now. Guide books don't talk much about this and after visiting several of the American Cemeteries outside of the USA, I'd finally come to this one. Soldiers, sailors, and airmen, including some women are... More

Extremely well kept grounds. The ranger was very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. Was our second visit, but my sister' first. Very sobering experience.

Very moving site dedicated to those who fought to defeat fascism. One of many WWII sites in Italy. See recent guidebooks for descriptions of other cemeteries, monuments, and war museums.

Everyone from the U.S. visiting Florence should visit the Florence American Cemetery and Memorial which is the final resting place of nearly 4,500 U.S. servicemen. Most of those buried here are from the Fifth Army who died in the fighting that followed the capture of Rome in June 1944; others from the heavy fighting in the Apennines between then and... More

The setting is quite serine and very emotional. It is kept in marvelous condition by the Italian Government and the sacrifice of these men will always be remembered by virtue of this site. Come spend some time with our fallen Hero's! You will not regret your time here as it will put you in touch with something much bigger than... More

The American cemetery was incredibly pristine, lovely, and full of emotion as we perused the writings on the walls, the church bells, the song in the air. Acres of our fallen, and a wall devoted to those who "sleep in unmarked graves." There wasn't a dry eye amongst us. Proud to be American.

The Memorial is very beautiful and a tranquil place for reflection on the sacrifice of so many to free Europe. Make sure you walk all the way to the main memorial to see the marble maps depicting the battles for Italy. In the welcoming center you will find memorial cards highlighting those who were killed each day. The memorial is... More

WE SPENT TIME HERE LOOKING FOR SOLDIERS WHO WOULD HAVE DIED SAME DAY MY FATHER WAS WOUNDED AND CAPTURED. We found none of his buddies. Just like Normandy, this is a beautiful tribute to our fallen soldiers. It is solemn and clean. The 70 acres are mostly on the west side of the Greve River. Surrounded by wooded hills, It... More

What a surprise it was to learn that near Florence, Italy there is a large cemetery which memorializes the brave actions of American during the First and Second World Wars and which holds the remains of those fallen heroes who could not be identified as well as those whose families chose to have them interred in the country where they...

We had a poignant visit to this immaculate and touching cemetery. How sad to see this little corner of history in such a quiet and still area. It was thought-provoking and, although we have no ties to America, it felt right to offer our respects to those who gave their lives so we could visit freely here today.
