  • An afternoon different from others, the entry is free and you are in front of a real Museum. You can find the graves of families who have made the history of Milan, all surrounded by an atmosphere rare! It's basically a large open air museum, definitely a tour if you are in Milan is a must!

  • We take the morning to visit so valued cemetery of Milan and the truth is that it was not too interesting. It is a cemetery for which this type of sites you like. Cold, sad and with little interest in the people who are buried there. Finally, for which these sites you like.

  • 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.
