Why visit a cemetery when you’re on vacation, you ask? The tombs at this Milan burial ground offer a great glimpse of Italian artistic styles from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

I know it may sound a bit gruesome, and I thought the same when my photo group proposed me to go there to take some pictures, but I changed my mind. As the slogan says, it is an OPEN AIR MUSEUM. Some Italian and international men of genius are buried here (such as Alessandro Manzoni, Salvatore Quasimodo, Isaac Newton, Francesco... More

Strolling down the paths of this monumental cemetery is like taking a trip down Milan's very own memory lane. Unless you go on a grey/rainy day, it isn't gloomy at all, au contraire. Sundays can be quite crowded, so pick a day in the middle of the week if you like the peace and quiet. If you're a fan of... More

The Monumentale - cemetery is well know for being the resting place of poets, politicians , musicians and very special people who lived , worked or simply had a special connection with Italy . To be buried in the Monumentale it's an honor and it involved a very special stoner granite grave with a guest building attached or a private... More

This place was the place in Milano that I like the most. There was so many statues and buildings that you will just get lost walking there. Definitely worth to visit.

This went far beyond my expectations, even for Milan. As much a sculpture museum as a cemetery, the range of monuments is vast and well worth a visit if that sort of thing is of interest to you. We walked for hours and had many moments of awe in what we saw. I hope to learn more about some of... More

This place is a good one to visit if you enjoy visiting cemeteries. There are many imposing family tombs here, with impressive sculpture. You can go celebrity -hunting, but most of the great names of Italian culture are absent. Many of the names of wealthy Italian families will mean nothing to the average tourist visitor. Rather sad, and only for... More

There must be a reason why Milan is dubbed as city of fashion. Milanese are not only famous with their high sense of fashion when they are alive, they make sure they are still in some kind of fashionable state in death. This massive complex of Milanese cemetery gives a visitor more than expected from a mundane cemetery. This place... More

I did not go in there due to the lack of time, but just by peeking through, I could see many tombs which were elaborately decorated. There were monuments built around. Even the exterior was grand that I thought it was a palace.

Neighbourhood Profile
Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.
