Pay homage to the soldiers of World War II at the beautifully maintained Salerno War Cemetery. Commonwealth and American forces landed near Salerno on 8-9 September 1943 and there was fierce fighting for some days in the bridgehead that they established. The site for the cemetery was chosen in November 1943 and it contains many burials resulting from the landings and the fighting that followed, but graves were also brought in later from a wide area of south-western Italy. Salerno War Cemetery contains 1,846 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, 107 of them unidentified.
