Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Structured, well designed, peaceful and most of all a beautiful memory for those that give their life for Europe.

Amazingly well kept site whilst being very moving to see the graves of so many who had lost their lives during the last World war.

I write this,in order to assist anyone thinking of travelling to Sangro River war cemetery.
I flew from Stanstead, London to Pescara. . I had pre booked a Band B in Pescara for a 4 night stint. It is a 38 or number 8 bus to the central station in pescara.,at 1.5 euro.The weather was poor for the first of 3 full days in Pescara. So the weather was good the second day and I got the 12.10 train to Fossacesia Torino do sangro. I got my ticket from a machine at the station that had an english instruction. This is a 37 minute journey at 3.6 euro.each way. This station is quite isolated. I would have got a taxi had one been there. However I was prepared to walk the approx 3 to 4 mile to the cemetery. I had done some sketches of the location prior to leaving uk. So I had a rough idea of location. So generally headed South and after 2 mile you reach the main road,continue South for a few hundred metres along a main road and the cemetery is prominently signposted, going inland at right angle to main road. The few fist few hundred metres are at 10% incline. It then levels off for the last three quarter mile. There are no turns in the route from main road. Try and pick a good weather day. In early May the roadside was awash with wild flowers and was just lovely. As I got to the cemetery there was a small holding with a rough field full of poppies and artichokes ...just so pretty and poigniant. The cemetery is in a beautiful setting and the visit should not be hurried. Take it all in.
My Uncle, Captain Gordon Hinds was from Liverpool . He had been head boy at Quarry Bank school. He died aged 30. His younger sister became Margaret Stewart. (My mum) So this is the first visit from a family member in 75 years, a very emotional moment.. To return I retraced my steps and got the 17 .10 train back Pesacara. There is an early one at 16.10. So it's all very doable. I had been thinking about this trip for a good while and so glad I did it.. Of course you could hire a car Pescara, with sat nav. I,m 62 and reasonably fit, so the walk I g etc not really an issue and it's atmospheric to do it this way.

Omg it’s surreal the graves are kept at their very best thankyou to Italy you done us proud
On research it was very hard to know how to get here where to stay but after reading others I thought fly to pescara then get a train here which was a bad move this time of year nowhere is open there’s no buses no taxis the new station is in the middle of no where with no public transport.
It was 4 km to our hotel we were lucky we rang the hotel they picked us up and gave us a number to someone that would take us to the cemetery.
The hotel siesta I highly recommended and lovely food but if you decide to come out of season I would recommend you stay at pescara and get the train here 40 mins because apart from the cemetery there is nothing to do nothing open not even for a coffee hope this helps

We did lots of research on this visit. Putting into words is hard....what a wonderful beautiful tranquil place for our family & loved ones RIP . Yes it is a little remote but not impossible. It is so worth the effort. Perfectly immaculately kept by hard working people. We have definitely come away feeling humble & thankful for their sacrifice.

We took my dad here to visit his brothers grave. He died in WW2 and my dad was the first member of his family to be able to pay his respects. Very moving experience but well worth it. The cemetery was immaculate and staff very helpful. Least we forget.

Walked here from the nearby Fruttanoce Villas - a wonderful walk - and then came upon the cemetery out of nowhere.

Beautiful laid out and kept, and a real poignant reminder of that time in our history. If you are in the area, you must go and visit for an hour of solitude and remembrance.

This is one of the nicest settings I've ever visited, lovely position in the hill and it's so well kept, several of my grandfathers friends are buried here and it's so nice to see it maintained so well. Well worth a visit, the assault over the sangro was vital in the campaign in Italy and so nice to see the men who made the ultimate sacrifice honoured like this
