The serene environment and beautiful architecture makes this the star attraction in Milan (next to the Duomo), glad we didn't give it a miss and visited out of curiosity!

For anybody that appreciates artistry and creation, this is a definite must. I was blown away by how many beautiful sculptures - on such a large scale - were fitted into one place, and that it can be enjoyed by anybody for free! Cimitero Monumentale...More

We visited the cemetery the afternoon upon arrival. It was a great way to get some sunshine, walk and help adjust to the time change. It is an amazing and peaceful place. It is obvious some of the monuments were fashioned from pure grief while...More

It is really hard to call it a cemetery since it more of a museum. Each tomb is like a monument or a sculpture. Very calm and relaxing place.

This is a quiet and peaceful oasis in the middle of the city. Not very easy to find and I had to ask many times for directions but finally some paramedics knew where it was. Well worth the trip.

This cemetery is simply amazing, both for its size and for its number of monuments. I've never been to anything like it before, and I'm so glad I had the chance to experience it. The cemetery itself is beautifully maintained and in a park-like setting....More

I have never seen a comparable cemetery. Enormous tombs competing with one another and uncountable sculptures of angels. Worth going there. One of the quietest places in Milano.

You've got to see this place. The art and sculpture is amazing. Huge huge monuments to death and grief. In today's terms this would be billions of dollars to create. We wandered around for a couple hours. Feels reverent and even magical.

This was amazing and certainly worth the time spent. It is actually a cemetery but feels like a park. Many famous gravesides including the Compari family with a large sculpture of the Last Supper. May photos displayed of the deceased . Each one is different...More
