  • Strange isn't it? Be doing a review for a cemetery. Yet after decades that we spent in front thanks to a guided tour by an organized group I decided to call it this unusual visit. Really a surprise. At least three hours passed without being bored thanks to a guide prepared and who passionately explained much of what we saw. We saw the main things but everything was nice in a context in which to understand and believe me there are a lot of things to discover. A beautiful day and I learned a lot and that's why I suggested to my family and friends to live the same experience. I suggest you read something for its own account of articles in Internet there are galore and this will help better to follow the Guide. Do you think this visit is by far the most sought by tourists and us Milanese maybe even know what offers our city.

  • I entered here for the first time and I think with myself: ain't it beautiful, even more than père Lachaise of Paris. And it is really beautiful.
  • Really nice place to go if you have some extra free time. Easily reachable with metro
  • Amazing, incredible, such a massive history sculptures. Very well cared place, clean. There are good info. There are also water to drink in the path
  • Do not miss this place. I'd rank it as the second place to visit in Milan, after the Duomo. It's by far the best memorial I've been to. Even though I'm not typically the type to walk around a cemetery, this is a definite go to.
  • Traditional cemeteries may not be worthy of a touristic visit, but this one is different: any corner of this vast place it's filled with art, culture and magic. If the weather is nice Cimitero Monumentale it's an ideal visit for a nice walk among history and architecture.
