If you ever come to Milan, you have to see this place. It is so calm, peaceful and beautiful (and I know that might sound strange because we are actually talking about a cemetery). Every grave, every corner is a peace of art. It took me an hour and a half just to see one third of this amazing place... More

Once you visit Cimitero Monumentale, you will not want to leave and you will visit it over the next days, again...and again...and again...Each tomb is a piece of art, starting from around 1800. You will definately want to take a photo of every grave there. The sculptures are enormous and they all have a story to tell. Highlight: the crematorium... More

What an amazing place this was. I was surprised to discover the way that graveyards and churches tend to be apart from each other. This particular cemetery is very special and the ornate and massive monuments were fantastic. The bigger the monument the more important the family or the person being remembered. Some very good pieces of art and very... More

My favorite place to get lost in Milan. It's not the most common place to hang out and maybe not the one of the things one would plan to visit Milan but it's definitely more than a simple visit,it's a profound experience.

A very ornate cemetery filled with large monuments of all designs from religious to military to personal. The site is vast and would take several hours to completely explore. The accompanying church is very picturesque as well.

Monumental Cemetery is the perfect off-the-beaten-path place to visit in Milan. We walked (somewhat of a distance) from the metro and had to ask for directions along the way. Don’t miss this awe inspiring cemetery. Go!

I never thought I would enjoy visiting a cemetery but the art work is absolutely outstanding. This is a must for visitors to Milan.
