The cemetery has so many sculptures portraying sadness as well as joy of dying while doing what you like. A lot of thought has gone into the beautiful carving and it looks like the Italians greeted even death with great art

It’s a cemetery. Get over it. There are magnificent works of art amongst the landscape here. While the sleeping lie, take your time to walk amongst history and how each of us long to be remembered.

Gorgeous building and morbidly fantastic for a nice stroll around. It’s huge with some fantastic tombs and graves. You will not get to see everything unless you spend a whole day there. Albert Einstein’s father is buried here.

Out for an afternoon bicycle trip in Milan and we came across this gem. For cemetery nuts like us this was a must see. It's an absolutely incredible piece of real estate with a lot of Italian notables buried here.

Easily reached on the #14 tram, this huge cemetary with baroque style church and massive monumental mauseleums and tomestones is a must-see!

Impressive and beautiful cemetery where every monument is a piece of art. I spent about 2 hours walking there, very calm and peaceful. At the info point you can get a map with the most interesting sights, what is very helpful.

We visited on our last day in the pouring rain so didn’t spend as long as we could having walking around the ornate graves and chapels and buildings where Italy’s dead lay. An interesting place , like nothing we have seen before

The Cimitero Monumentale is one of the two largest cemeteries in Milan, Italy, the other one being the Cimitero Maggiore. It is noted for the abundance of artistic tombs and monuments.
