Florence American Cemetery and Memorial Tours

Framed by forested hills and spread across 70 acres, the Florence American Cemetery and Memorial pays tribute to more than 4,000 American soldiers who lost their lives in wars in Italy. Most of the casualties come from World War II’s Fifth Army, who fought the battles that took place after Rome was captured in 1944. The soldiers buried here fell anywhere from Rome to the Alps. Surrounded by trees of the Tuscan countryside, the grounds are beautifully kept in honor of the fallen soldiers. The many white marble headstones dot the green fields beside the Greve River.

The memorial center beside the cemetery is a multi-denominational church that includes a ‘Wall of the Missing’ for the unknown soldiers whose trace was never found. There is also a monument for peace. It is one of fourteen American cemetery and memorials on foreign soil around the world. 

Practical Info

The cemetery is located about 7.5 miles south of the city of Florence in Tavarnuzze, on Via Cassia. The Rome-Milan A1 autostrada passes nearby. It is open daily to the public from 9 am to 5 pm.
