  • You could spend hours walking around the graves and monuments in the cemetery. It does not feel sad or gloomy to be there at all. It's just incredible the number and quality of the tombs that have been built there through time. An absolutely fascinating place. Do not miss it!!!
  • It is a huge graveyard with all the Milano's families I think and every single one of the big ones has its own building, similar to a small or even real-size temple. If you have interest in architecture or monuments or anything related it is great place for you. In my opinion it is such a waste of money to build these enormous monuments for everyone.
  • Biggest Cimentry in Milan. Very clean and quiet. Required at least 2-3 hour to enjoy this place. It completely different world in there. Take you back in ages.
  • Yes, it's a cemetery but it's also effectively an open air sculpture park. Rather atmospheric too. The dead centre of Milan is worth a look see.
  • Surprisingly new Cemetery by European standards, but amazing views. I hope this looks just as amazing for future generations.
