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.

  • A small citadel where buildings are of monumental tombs, with major and minor streets, with tall trees. All very impressive and poetic.

  • 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.
  • I have never seen a cemetery like this one. Even from the outside will definitely catch your attention as the synagogues are monumental and unique in the scenery. Once you enter you will be circled by different types of tombs and statues which will enhance you and you may almost forget that you actually are in the cemetery.
  • Amazing place. Very beautiful cemetery, I’ve never seen anything like this before. The atmosphere is fantastic here.
  • Beautiful place, many sculptures, huge place. You can really rest there ( even if you are alive). There are toilets avaliable.
  • I highly recommend taking a walk in this cemetery. Grand and elaborate tombstones in a peaceful atmosphere.

Where to stay in Milan

For a quintessential Milanese experience, stay in the bustling heart of the old town. This area offers easy foot access to most of Milan's main sites, as well as some of the city's finest restaurants, shops, and theaters. The central area is also quite crowded, and comfortable rooms in good hotels can be very expensive. Visitors traveling on a budget can choose from a range of top-notch B&Bs and family-operated hostels, which offer private parking and access to private outdoor space, minutes from Milan's main attractions.
