  • Monumental in beauty and size, you'll find all kinds of grave and history in this Cemetery. Be careful not to get lost.

  • For those who have a few hours of time is a fascinating visit. The gravestones are beautiful (if fascinate you these things of course). Is for sure worth to go there!

  • You should have seen as a graveyard. Can easily keep up with the the Vienna central cemetery. Very neat and worth seeing

  • 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.
