  • first of all, the visit is free, it's worth it to see much of the history of Milan, all made by artists commemorating alessandro manzoni, giorgio gaber, the tomb of the family falk and many other should go there several times was the first Crematorium in Milan.

  • It's the first time I visit a cemetery and one in Milan is definitely one of those important. I visited only a part and will return to finish the visit (the entrance is free for the map on the answering machine). I have visited only about half because although you can find some very interesting works, overall what prevailed in me was the hardship: If you're rich you can afford to shine even at the cemetery ...

  • I have seen few places with so many works of art. Absolutely worth visiting also the part Jewish, Muslim and atheist.

  • 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.
