Admire artistic tombs at Monumental Cemetery, a large cemetery opened in 1866. Several of the tombs were designed by renowned artists. Enter through the large, Neo-medieval-style Famedio that contains the tombs of some of Italy's most honored citizens. Look for the exhibit of prints, photographs, and maps outlining the cemetery's historical development. Next, wander through the cemetery to discover both contemporary and classical Italian sculptures, as well as Greek temples, elaborate obelisks, and more. Visit the Civico Mauoleo Palanti to see the memorial built for 800 Milanese killed in Nazi concentration camps.

  • Wonderfull place to walk and think. Incredible tomb. A nice place to be in Milan. Just in front of. A girl who sell great food.
  • I felt like I was in a museum. I was impressed by the beautiful, unique sculptures. Simply amazing!
  • One of my favorite experienced in Milan. Came here in the morning so it was not very busy. The sculptures are detailed to the full forms, and each tombstone carries its own trademark piece. The gardens, small tombs, the building, all very composite and definitive, make this place a must visit.
  • Cimitero Monumentale di Milano is visually stunning - a very beautiful and peaceful place that you can easily get lost in, trawling around for hours and enjoying its beauty. There's something wonderful to look at around every corner - and there's also free public bathrooms on site!
  • The Monumental Cemetery in Milan is like an open air museum. The art with which the mausoleums and the sculptures that accompany them were built is soothed by their beauty. I visited this cemetery one summer day. The cemetery closed at 17.00, but I had not read the program at the entrance, so the sun was still high in the sky, I did not realize that I could be closed there. But the program was a program and had to be respected and probably no one detected my presence there, so I remained locked between the graves. Of course, I managed to jump the fence and leave, but I had already made a plan how to stay there.
