Owner description: Why visit a cemetery when you’re on vacation, you ask? The tombs at this Milan burial ground offer a great glimpse of Italian artistic styles from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

This cemetery is a must see sight in Milan. Many of the mausoleum and tombstones are quite elaborate . There are variations in style and it is an interesting place to explore.

One of my favorite places in Milan. Often overlooked the Cimitero Monumentale offers history, gorgeous architecture and sculpture, as well as a beautiful landscape.
Great for photographers!

We have been travelling to Milan twice a year for nearly 20 years and had never been here before due to time restraints. This trip we allowed time to visit this fantastic place. It is just breath taking in all respects. The day we went was not the best as it was raining heavily but the damp conditions seemed to compliment the atmosphere of the place. Other reviews have added many photographs but seeing it is even more moving. It's a must.

Cementeries can be charming, scary, wellkept, in disrepair and lots of other things. The Cimitero Monumentale has it all. An enormous labyrintine complex full of strange and wonderfull gravesites lots of them in a compleks art noveau style (IIRC) Definitely worth a visit, even on a rainy day as it is full of wonderous sights from times gone by

You can literally spend like hours inside this huge cemetery! It might sound creepy but definitely worth a visit!! There's so many artistic element that you can find inside, so much sculpture is created for the deceased and it's not just an ordinary grave, but more like an art tribute to the beloved who had passed away... Just be respectful and browsing through the cemetery and you could see so much impressive artworks that as good as you go to the museum and most importantly, it does not cost you any penny!
