  • Very interesting history lesson ... Remember that apart from the cemetery there are many trails around the area where the battle took place.  more »
  • Reading age, very young age, of those thousands of young ... exciting. That both as a warning and as a reminder that similar atrocities do not they repeat.

  • Coming from a Commonwealth Country the visit to this Cemetery was an eye opener of what a World War can do to the world. It was sad to walk amongst all these graves and to realise how young many of the soldiers were. A must to visit especially if you lost someone in WW II. The cemetery is well cared for and the commission responsible for its upkeep, must be complimented.
  • We came to the cemetery on a family pilgrimage of 13 people to visit the grave of my husband's grandfather who was killed in the Battle of Montecassino in 1944. I was incredibly moved by my experience. It was so very meaningful to find his grave and to spend some quiet time there. I also spent a long time walking amongst the other graves and reading who the Allied servicemen were, their battalions and where and when they fell. I was particularly moved by the graves which were grouped together - for all of the members of Air Force flight crews who died together when their planes were shot down. There are engraved walls too with names of the servicemen who were lost with no body found to bury and some other striking memorial structures too. There is a little sanctuary space over on the left hand wall of the cemetery with a Visitors' book where you can mark your visit and leave a message. It was incredibly hot when we visited - there are some trees to rest in a bit of shade and the sanctuary gives a reflective, cooler roofed space. "Enjoy" would be the wrong word, but I had a very emotional and meaningful visit which meant a lot to me. It was quite something to be able to show my children their great grandfather's grave and explain to them the bravery and sacrifices made for us to give us our lives and freedom today. I highly recommend a visit it
  • A very beautiful and clean War Cemetery.
  • Absolutely remarkable. Many signs explaining the history, well kept, beautiful.
  • Very nice location and everything is well kept to honor the young soldiers that lost their lives. Very proud to see the many different nationalities supporting, especially Canadian support.
