Why visit a cemetery when you’re on vacation, you ask? The tombs at this Milan burial ground offer a great glimpse of Italian artistic styles from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

If you are tired seeing all the churches, this is an alternative. At the entrance you will see a map to guide you to the "highlights", but other statues are equally interesting. It can be creepy at times, I can imagine if you are visiting alone. I suggest you just choose ones that interest you. We didn't miss the Last... More

If you're in Milan do not miss this. The pictures kind of speak for themselves but has to be seen to be believed. Just a few things to consider though, it is absolutely MASSIVE so make sure you wear comfortable shoes, give yourself at least 2 hours to look around, would be easy to spend 4 hours here. And take...

This is a very interesting and somewhat surreal place. It's a great place for a bit of peace and quiet and walking through the grounds is a generally interesting experience. Definitely worth going out of your way to visit.

This cemetary is a must visit if you knew any of the Rich in Milan who are no more. Apparently the most affluent families book graves at this Cemetery.

It might seems weird to visit a Cemetery, but this one was worth it. The art and sculptures makes it different from any cemetery I ever saw.

To put it short and simple: it's the most beautiful cemetery I've ever seen (but I never been in France). If you like this kind of things (it is a cemetery after all, not a very funny place), you should definitely visit.

The monumental cemetery is a great place to visit if you are in Milan...consider that this place is huge so you'll need some time to walk around here.

This cemetery is literally an open air museum. Its tombs are full of high standard sculptures and one can read the story of the whole city through them. The square in front of it has been refurbished recently giving to it the monumentality that it deserves.

As the name implies, we’re talking about a cemetery. A monumental one. Yes, I know it's a bit strange, but this is one of the most beautiful creations I’ve ever seen in my life. The place is huge and it’s filled with a wide range of contemporary and classical life-sized Italian sculptures. There are also many beautiful buildings, tombs, and... More

A cemetary in the true South European Spirit...but certainly only the Italians could do so well as these...
