I was looking for somewhere interesting to go in Milan the day before flying out. A lovely Milanese gentleman I spoke to in a café suggested the cemetery for something a little out f the ordinary to do list bin Milan. I thought I'd visit for an hour and spent nearly 4 hours there, could have stayed longer. Tombstones are... More

Some outstanding statuary on the various tombs, with significant examples of various period styles. Very pleasant walking among the trees on a hot day.

This place is literally packed with sculptures and destinies that can blow you away. If you enjoy the experience of browsing funeral slabs this is the ultimate trip, and much more than that. The place is brimming with local celebreties and a quite a few with world fame (mind you, they are all diseased, though). I had very little expectations... More

As weird as it sounds, it was my favorite place in milan. The contrast between this peaceful place to the noisy city is amazing. The monuments are Beatiful and it is always quite. Highly recommended.

Never been to anything like this before, hundreds of statutes and gravestones, felt quite eerie in places, you could spend hours walking round. It is obviously a cemetery for the very rich and it feels like there is competition for the biggest and most splendid monument!

I think I have never been to a cemetery like this before in my life. The statues and artwork on the graves are unreal - in a good way. Some of it is so over the top you wonder if you're dreaming. I couldn't stop taking photos I was so stunned by what I was seeing. If you're interested, you... More

Amazing, beautiful, breath-taking etc. You can enhance the enthusiasm, but after a few minutes my feeling was: "no, it's too much". I like impressive cemeteries, and it's very impressive, very monumental, you look anywhere and you see something beautiful, you look in the other direction, and you see something more beautiful and so on. But after so much beauty you... More
