We came here on recommendation from a friend and it was so worth the stop. When you enter the guarded gate, there is visitor parking on the right. The information center is like a mini-museum and we (including our tween/teen-aged kids) were able to learn so much about WWII in Italy from the short 8 minute video and exhibits. It's... 更多
We try to visit the cemeteries in Europe as a tribute to the fallen in WWll. My Dad fought at Iwo Jima for the Marines, so my husband and I like to visit the beau military cemeteries.. This one is so beautifully kept, peaceful and park like very near the city..But, it is so quiet and it just makes you... 更多
We first visited the beach and museum in Anzio, then took the train to Vettuno to pay our respects to our fallen soldiers. The facility was absolutely beautiful and a fitting tribute to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. If you are in Rome, take the time to visit this location. You will be at peace.
Each war cemetery seems to have a philosophy behind it depending on the country it represents. The American cemeteries that I've visited all over Europe are like entering a beautiful public park that is quiet and peaceful. Further inside the rolling hills of small white crosses and stars of David,row on row,are almost overpowering as you realize that each one... 更多
Took my children (10, 7) and one of their friends to see this memorial to some 10,000 young mens ultimate sacrifice. I am not sure they fully understood the magnitude - but with time they may learn, that we can live the way we do - only due to these brave mens sacrifices. There is a nice small visitors center... 更多
Beautiful place with plenty of information, education. Not to be missed, part of history for Italy and United States.A nice place to reflect. Take your time, stroll through quietly. Takes a couple of hours at least. We rode the train from Rome, got off in Anzio, and walked to the cemetery. A long walk, be prepared if you take that... 更多
This was our second trip to Nettuno and we only just learned about the cemetery. We spent a morning there, just soaking in the peace and the history and spent some time in the memorial.
Took a train from Rome to Nettuno and walked to the cemetery. Arrived close to closing time on Sunday and met Ernesto, a volunteer who took us to the Unknown Tomb Memorial via a small shuttle cart. He was an interesting man who added to our experience. We found the name we were looking for (my boyfriend's uncle) and took... 更多
We spent time at the different cemeteries devoted to the WWII dead... the American cemetery here, the British cemetery at Anzio, the Polish cemetery at Cassino. Each has its own style. Here it is row by row, with little personalized indications at each graveside. Very moving experience to see so many. And the memorial, at the end of the lines... 更多
