    A few minutes ' drive from Florence Charterhouse, an area of over 28 hectares lies this large and impressive American military cemetery, which contains the bodies of fallen American soldiers 4402 in Central Italy during the advance and clashes against the Nazi-Fascist troops of the 1943-45, until the liberation of Italy the scenery is very impressive, celebrating and typically American entry from the esedra with the bronze gate decorated with symbols and coats of arms and low lateral buildings covered with marble. Inside, the tombs are arranged beautifully on the wide lawns that slope, climb up towards the monumental buildings of the shrine, in which are recorded the names of over 1400 scattered of which were never found the bodies. The rooms are decorated with precious marbles, with maps and inscriptions made of marquetry. Hedges and copses enliven and brighten the entire collection, and together with the forested hills that surround the complex, make it attractive and enjoyable, as well as historically informative and moving, the visit.

  • Must visit if you are in Florence. A Very sacred place to remember Americans who gave unselfishly and helped liberated Italy. Thank you for keeping their resting place such a majestic tribute!
  • peaceful beautiful tribute to the Americans who bravely gave their lives. the cemetery attendant told a beautiful story of three brothers who werel enlisted through actual letters he had from their families. we went with a group of 40 people we all had tears in our eyes when we left
  • Here is where our enemies' dead bodies lie and rest. They bombed our cities, our schools with kids inside, our monuments and our churches from year 1940, to year 1945. Italy didn't deserve at all their cruelty. Yes, we were at war, but Italy never bombed Manhattan, New York, Los Angeles or whatever! Shame on you, bombers and invaders, shame on you until the end of times!
  • Beautiful area to remember and reflect on the sacrifice of some of the millions of brave, patriotic Americans who gave their lives in defense of freedom.
  • A wonderful place for remember all those Americans🇺🇸 that fought for the Italy. ~God Bless America~ ❤️🇺🇸
