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.

Lots of dead people here. Went there in 1964 and returned again this year in June. They're are all still dead but it is still one of Milan's biggest attractions!

We added this on at the end of our trip because we had an extra afternoon and have been to a few other famous cemeteries. One fun spot was the Garibaldi metro station where we got a view of some interesting modern buildings and a couple very unusual apartment high rises (see photos). The crypts in the cemetery are beyond... More

A calm place with an amazing statues and sculptures. In different sizes. From different time span. If you are into photography and history and art, this is the place to be.

It is amazing how much money some people are willing to pay for a grave. Some are even the size of a small house. Is it to boast or to remain 'immortal'? I'd rather spend it while I am alive.

Having always had a strange fascination with cemeteries, of course we had to visit one of the two largest in Milan. This cemetery was designed by architect Carlo Maciachini to consolidate many smaller cemeteries found throughout the city into one area. The Cemeteri Monumentale contains a wide range of classical and contemporary sculptures as well as obelisks, Greek temples and... More

When planning my visit to Milan, I saw some pictures of it and wrote it down on my to-see-list. But I didn't imagine it would be that beautiful, that huge!! We got there by metro (to Garibaldi) and walked about 10 minutes. We were amazed by its massiveness. It looks like a castle. By walking inside and looking at the... More

This cemetery was so beautiful, and informative. A lot of the graves had beautiful statues on the graves. It was done very respectfully. A lot of the graves have full size statues of people, adults and children even statues of military with helmets & guns. It was so beautiful and respectfully done. it is right in the city of Milan....

It's a bit out of the way, but the cemetery is like a work of art. Just an amazing place, but a bit eerie. Might not be on every travelers 'must do' list. But if I knew this place was there and I missed it, I would have been very disappointed. Don't miss it.

Easily accessible by subway this is a sight to behold bring your camera with a lot of back up sd cards because it will take all day to walk around and take pictures of everything. We spent at least 4 hours and it was hot and the roads were unpaved so be ready and bring your own drinking water the... More
