An amazing cemetery right outside the walls. Impressed by the number of flower vendors outside. Many well maintained and many are huge family mausoleums designed like small chapels. So many wonderful Italian names that we have in America too. Peace.

In 1959, a relative visited. Pictures sent by me were taken during that visit. There are excellent monuments and graveyards. It is a soothing place and especially I had the opportunity to visit the grave of Private in the picture.

Walking in a cemetery can be very soothing and tranquil. I really like this serene cimitero with beautiful architecture and landscaping. You should really take your time when you visit this place as it is really big. Just wander around and let yourself be surprised...More

Whilst waiting for the Basilica di San Lorenzo to open, we wandered further up the piazza and were amazed to find the entrance of the huge Verano cemetery. With time to spare we wandered in without expectation. We were in awe. The architecture, individual crypts...More

I went to the Verano for a funeral and many of my ancestors are buried there. It dawned on me the last time I was there, that it would probably be of interest to people as there are beautiful family monuments with sculptures, beautiful trees,...More
