  • I visit Milano alone in a weekend trip and to be frank i regret to spend a little time in the cemetery. Headstones and monuments are stunning. However i was alone and its kind a getting dark so for me...  more »
  • Really, this cemetery is worth a visit for the enormity of his wealth and his luxury. Some graves are almost the size of a House; everything is beautifully maintained. The quintessence of the excessiveness of Milan!

  • We booked a free guided tour of the town for a Saturday afternoon. For the girl, who acted as guide was the first time and was very excited but informed. The cemetery is beautiful and interesting but without driving less.

  • 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.
