Might seem a bit strange to visit Milan and go to a cemetery but this one is so special. The mausoleums, tombs,graves and sculptures are amazing. It's very peaceful and fronted by a beauiful building.

I have to agree with the previous viewers, this is the most impressive site to visit in Milan. I've never seen so many great sculptures concentrated in one place. I could almost feel the sadness from the statues. It can take hours of hours of wondering around at this place see everything. This is a must see in Milan.

Many old cities have interesting cemeteries, but Milan's Monumental Cemetery is unquestionably unique. This is not a destination to rush through; plan to spend some time to fully appreciate the remarkable gravestones. To gain a greater understanding of what makes this exhibition of outdoor sculpture a must-see while visiting Milan, take a look at the video I made of pictures... More

You will need a good amount of time to fully appreciate this place. The work done by the artists is simply something you have to behold. So many beautiful pieces to see and such a beautiful ode to departed family members. Definitely the highlight of our milan trip!

A fascinating Experience with some wonderfully designed monuments . Only very important/famous people can be buried in this Cemetery. The façade is wonderful.
