  • Simply brilliant! Overwhelmingly, these masterpieces of sculpture. The tombs tell stories about the deceased, their jobs, their relationships with their environment, and also about the fashion of the time. How filigree worked the top of the dresses, the wrinkles, the facial expressions. Each grave site to stay and Staunen.und: all free.

  • One of the largest cemetery in Europe. Huge. The galleries to the ornate tombs of statues, some by their ready to smile bombast to discover the most beautiful beautiful. Outside we can go see the tomb of one of the players of Italian unity, Giuseppe Mazzini. Is also the songwriter Andre Fabrizio, one of the singers of the most famous of the 80/90 that, early in his career, has translated and adapted in Italian G.Brassens. BES bus direct and many provide links to the city centre. It proliferated at the time of Halloween.

  • The graveyard I go there for visits to the dead. Monumental is the right word, too bad the maintenance is almost nothing three years ago have fallen trees smashing tombs, which are still there waiting to be put back on track. Cleaning garage, both of the roads of "gardens". Overall it abandoned to itself. I know that these are problems of poor finances of the municipality, but the fact remains that as always the good things that we have in Italy, leave them adrift ... shame!

  • Monumental cemetery. One of the most beautiful of all Europe. I recommend you to follow a guided visit.
  • One of the best attractions in Genoa. It's an ancient 19th century cemetary that turned into a museum. Must see.
  • Amazing experience!! One most see, not only for its Masonry work but for the views of the Genoavese mountain side.
  • Staglieno is not just a cemetery it is an experience. There are a lot of monuments art galleries and buildings for tourists to go to in any town. This though was a beautiful experience. Surrounded by the dead and loved.
  • 這是意大利熱那亞一個非常奇妙的,絕對獨一無二,會讓你終生難忘的景點。你找不到相似的地方。雕像很棒,震撼人心。如果你想参觀完所有東西大概需要4-5小時,如果你時間不夠的話,可以跟着地圖参觀重點景點。不用門票,所以你可以找一個陽光明媚的日子到這裏走走。關門時間大概是下午5點。
