The cemetery is located a bit outside of town yet feels a world away. Behind the walls lies a serene green space filled with lush landscaping, imposing monuments and winding pathways. The graves vary from simple to majestic. Well worth a short visit when you...More
Enormous, labyrinthine cemetery with cloistered walkways, every section reveals something new. Fantastic sculptures, from the beautiful to the macabre. A wonderful place to walk for a few hours with every corner and every new section providing something amazing to look at. Half an hour’s walk...More
Monumental cemetery a bit outside Bologna, but still within walking distance. It has many departments, it is recommenndable to decide what you exactly want to see. It is probably too big to cover it in one visit. Beautifully positioned with great view on the Santuario...More
The old part of this cemetery is full of beautiful sculptures and architecture, all with nice, green scenery. A lot of graves is damaged, which only add the thought of mystery and reflect how things pass away...
Incredible place, it’s like you’re in a deserted city. Long walk (45 to 60 minutes), since it’s a bit far from the city centre. On foot, walk via the porticos starting from Porta Saragozza. Not to be missed: Lucia Dalla’s tomb.
It’s interesting how certain places retain their spiritual significance for long periods of time. During the 1800s Etruscan objects had been found sporadically here and in 1869 a tomb was uncovered leading to the realisation that the whole area had been an Etruscan necropolis back...More
Not perhaps at the top of the list for many visitors to Bologna especially given the embarrassment of riches elsewhere, the Certosa di Bologna is nevertheless fairly extraordinary and worth the short trip out of town. The cemetery is vast (this is no exaggeration) and...More
I will be Milan in a week. Can someone inform me as to what Metro stop is best for: 1. The Last Supper 2. Cimitero Monumentale As well I am considering taking a day trip to Pavia. How do I get to Certosa di Pavis? Is there a train? Is it within walking distance from the train station? Thanking you in advance

Stay in Siena or out of city walls (12 Replies)
We made our first visit to Italy (Venice/Florence) last November and had a day trip to San Gimignano with a private tour guide. We are planning on going back in October to see Rome and wanted to spend two nights in the Tuscn countryside. My husband does not want to take a car so the train will be our option. We thought that staying in Siena would be fun, is two nights here too much? I've looked at a property called Certosa di Maggianio which is about a ten minute walk. I've heard that staying...More

Two nights is not too much for Siena - there's a lot to see, and plenty of day trip options. I highly recommend staying outside the city, but still close by. I was extremely glad we did that last fall. It was so nice to leave the city streets and return to our hotel's gardens and nice views over the Tuscan countryside. We stayed at the Villa Scacciapensieri, which is on the city bus line. (The bus stops right in front of the hotel's driveway.) I highly recommend this hotel. We didn't have...More

Museo Nazionale di Capodimonte (23 Replies)
Help! I've read so much of this museum and I want to see it but I can't find it on my Naples Street Map. The maps I've seen showing it's location looks like it is right where the Certosa Di San Martino and the Castel San Elmo are located. Are they the same?

No, they aren't the same. For Capodimonte, put Via Miano 2, Naples, Italy, into Google Maps. Zoom out until you see Vomero, then zoom in on Vomero, and you'll see Certosa di San Martino.
