  • A sad place but at the same time that conveys a sense of eternity, simple graves and tombs, statues and columns, testimony of families that have written the history of the city, lots of greenery and many avenues, you join the Faith and history, tourism and a sense of peace and greatness. Some sculptures are true masterpieces, although the maintenance could be better. I think the second monumental cemetery remains after that of Milan, not to be missed

  • The campo santo of Genes is a masterpiece of architecture and sculpture with very fine points of views. It is an essential part of the local culture.

  • take time: is great and well worth a visit in peace. more than a cemetery is a Museum of sculptures in open air, with the right days offers a special atmosphere, where you can admire the beautiful statues. impressive

  • This cemetery is a beautiful place for anyone who likes History, sculpture or even just sightseeing. It's gigantic and full of beautiful things to see. I was a bit skeptical about visiting a cemetery but it's totally worth it. It is lacking some work when it comes to preservation, but even that adds to the beauty of the space. Better signs to help you navigate the space would also be nice.
  • I will love to put this joint in my menu
  • 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.
