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 was surprised by how much I enjoyed my visit. Cemeteries aren't really my thing but some of the crypts and tombstones really made it interesting. I would highly recommend it!

We were encouraged to visit here by our host and we're so glad we did! It's quite astonishing to see how wealthy families have built such enormous and elaborate mausoleums for their loved ones, we'd never seen anything like it!

The Monumental Cemetery is huge with headstone and tombs that show Italian Passion for life and death. This is an interesting place to spend a couple hours in the peaceful cemetery.

It seems wrong to be sight-seeing in a cemetery but this place is made for reflection on those who have gone before and the monuments their families have provided. Enter with respect for what the place is and you will be rewarded with an insight...More
