  The Garibaldi family burial plot.
by sourbugger

Garibaldi, apart from giving the world a rather terrific biscuit was, perhaps, the most pre-eminant name in Italian History. It is therefore a rather sad reflection that when you put 'Garibaldi's tomb' into google, it returns with 'Did you mean Garfield's tomb ?'

The family farmhouse (covered in the tip above) has become a major spot to visit in Sardinia, and as you leave the 'white house' you are directed out on a path that leads to the family buriak plot, and finally Garibald's boat.

Garibaldi's grave itself is a rather understated affair, being a piece of seemingly uncut granite. I think the 'natural' look says something about the man himself. The rather more formal toombs to either side belong to his wife and children, some of whom died tragically young.
