Montecchio War Cemetery
Apr 2016 • Couples
It is sad to see the young ages of the fellows buried here. There appears to have been an attempt to group the burials of soldiers in the same regiments so they are with their buddies forever.
The cemetery is (like all I have seen) very well kept.
I took the time to visit all the members of Perth Regiment (Canada) as they would have served with my Dad (buried a bit north east at Gradara War Cemetery). So many died within a few days of each other as the fighting here was the breaking of the Gothic Line. There is a memorial at Point 204 above the cemetery.

You get by car, not far from the Gothic Line Breaking point. If you've been to other Commonwealth war cemeteries then you know the concept. Cassino, Orvieto like many others.

Not originally planned in our trip,however I was requested to visit this cemetery if possible on behalf of two friends to take a picture of the topography of the area and also the grave markers which I did. We had a group of 14 people in our group and while we were heading for San Marino everybody was agreeable to the detour. We were all impressed with the cemetery and how well the grounds were kept. Well worth the visit and gave us all another opportunity to pay our respects to our Canadian fallen.

Final Resting Place of 289 Canadians
Jul 2014 • Family
Final resting place of 582 Commonwealth soldiers, including 289 Canadians, who died in late August and September 1944 in the battle to break the Gothic Line. Cemetery is immaculately maintained with a lush green lawn and colourful plants and flowers. We came to pay our respects to an uncle and, as in any war cemetery, were immediately struck by how young these soldiers were -- most in their early 20s. Cemetery was easy to find on the main road between Pesaro and Urbino about 12 km west of Pesaro. The Commonwealth Graves Commission and Veterans Affairs Canada both offer excellent websites that will help you determine the exact location grave of the person you're interested in. Once you've visited, take time to drive to the Italian monument dedicated to Canadians about 4 km away. Follow Strada di Montechiaro until it meets Strada per Pozzo and then turn left towards Tavullia. Follow the Strada per Pozzo around a 90 degree turn and you'll find the memorial, ringed by very tall cypress trees, on the left hand side.
