Florence US War Cemetery

On the old Via Cassia and visible from the 4-Coursie motorway from Florence to Siena, the 70 acre US WW II Cemetery on the banks of the river Greve is framed by the beautiful trees and hills of Chianti. It contains 4,402 headstones guarding the remains of some of the young American soldiers who fell in the WW II battles after the fall of Rome, and tablets with the names of a further 1409 who rest in unknown places. A very moving reminder of the terrible toll of war.
