Absolutely Amazing
Jul 2021
So much more then a cemetery! Oh my, I would put Monumental Cimiteri up there with the Duomo as an absolute must see in Milan. The main building is stunning in itself but what greets you beyond is quite awe inspiring. 250, 000 sq metres of the most amazing & extravagantly ornate tombs, obelisks, sculptures & temples, honouring the great, the good & the rich of Italy, including renowned architects, musicians, entrepreneurs & sportsmen. It really is more of an open air museum of art & sculpture.
Allow plenty of time, it’s worth it. Unmissable.

Better than it seems. Easy to get to by public transport. The place is MASSIVE and the cemetery will surprise you with the sizes of the constructions inside. Entry is free of charge.

An amazing place to visit in Milan. Maybe it's not your usual tourist location, but it's definitely worth the visit, as good number of the graves has been done by famous architects and artists.

I wasnt expecting anything like that

There are not many things leaving me speechless. This cemetery did.
Already the entrance building looks more like a palace than a building housing coffins etc.
Once you made your way through the building into the cemetery as such behind the entrance you feel like either in an ancient Roman settlement or an exhibition of statue and stones - monumental statues and stones of course.
I dont know if one can say you like a cemetery. But I really did. It was calm there and you hardly see any visitors as they seem to vanish behind all the graves and statues. I really enjoyed the visit.

Massive cemetery grounds
Feb 2020 • Couples
The main entrance is though the large Famedio, a massive hall of fame like Neo medieval style building made of marble and stone that contains the tombs of some of the city's and country's most honored citizens. There is a special section for those who do not belong to the catholic religion and a Jewish section. There is also the Crematorium Temple , which was the first crematorium to open in the western world. Signals located throughout the cemetery point visitors to several of the most remarkable tombs and monuments.

Wow! More amazing than expected!

This is really an amazing place - the sculpture is incredible. You will find yourself transported - pondering the lives of those interred here as well as contemplating your own mortality. If you have the time, it's well worth a visit.

Magically Scary place
Jan 2020
We have never felt so real to be in a horror story. We were not so keen on to go a cemetery for touristic reasons but after searching, our curiosity was heavier than all. If you would like to feel all shiver in your body we highly recommend to go when the sun goes down. We were there at 17:00 and the sun was not so efficient. As you can see in the picture, the place is fascinating yet scary though. The statues are like a piece of artwork. Sadly after 45 mins walk, we begin to feel the fear much more than normal so we did not enter the places between chapels. The entrance is free and it is open between 08:00–18:00.
However please be quiet in the cemetery just to respect the people who lost their loved ones...
