Monumental Cemetery, Milan

4.7
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.

  • Incredible place to visit. So many sculptures and buildings, impossible to describe with words. The best place I have visited in Milano. I would say better than the museum at Cariolli. The atmosphere, the magnificence of the place is breath taking!
  • I can't stress enough of how important it is to visit this place! It's absolutely free and was one of the best experiences I had in Milan. The cemetery is quite large so be ready to walk around for at least 2 hours if you want to see as much as possible. You can also explore the large building near the entrance. There are metro and tram stops nearby and the cemetery is very easy to find.
  • An amazing City of the Dead. I've never seen a cemetery that came close to this one. Lots of crazy sculptures and buildings. A stroll inside is fascinating and for free.
  • An absolutely must to visit if you are in Milano. It's free, beautiful but shocking at the same time. Be prepared to spend at least an hour there, because you will just not get enough of the old sculptures on the top of the graves.
  • With full respect to the souls reset at this place, it is really does not look like a cemetery. You feel that you are walking in a museum full of art and prefect touch. Some of the monuments reflect sad story while others are showing the joy beyond our life. It is amazing how the artists translated the life of several people resting in the cemetery. Highly recommended.
