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.

A very off tourist attraction but an amazing place to visit. Wander with very few other people around and look at the wonderful sculptures and mausoleums - grab a map as you enter. Fascinating !

My favourite tourist attraction in Milan. Coming from demnark, to me a cementary is a beautiful happy place, whereas this is like in scary books.

Large cemetery with many incredibly beautiful tombs and gravestones, unlike anything you'll see elsewhere (it is Milan after all!) It's amazing how modern some of the designs are, amongst the other much older graves. Absolutely worth a visit for a quiet stroll.
