Cemetery of the Soldiers who laid down their lives in the line of duty. Well maintained and managed. Co located with the large cantonment of French Army.. Anybody visiting this place may also have a look at the Artillery Museum nearby

The Rhone American Cemetery and Memorial is a wonderfully peaceful, beautiful place, and a touching place to reflect on the sacrifice of those who liberated Europe. The most striking aspect of this cemetery isn’t the number of headstones, as it is in Normandy, but the...More

Still a little jet-lagged, took a short trip to the Rhône American Cemetery in Draguignan. Buried there are about a thousand men and women that died during the southern invasion of Europe in August 1944. What was supposed to be a quick stop and lunch...More

Very emotional, very beautiful. If you are near this cemetery, you must visit. Our tour guides were absolutely amazing.

This cemetery is quite small but extremely moving. We visited on Mother's Day and a tour group had left single long stemmed roses on several graves. This is a stop that is worth your time and is a very well maintained site.

Most impressive reminder of those who gave so much for our freedom, but also helps to understand the tactics and geography of regaining lost territory for re-establishing the Frnch nation.

One of the smaller cemeteries, but well worth the stop. Allison running the cemetery is very enthusiastic about her charge, and they make a real effort to make visitors and surviving family members feel welcome.
