I really did not know what to expect from a cemetary, but i must say that i was impressed and touched! The large monumentals/graves are impressive...big, all individual pieces of art with a lot of work and details! It's very peaceful and should be visited...More

This is a very good attraction for a walk in Milan. Only one time I went there and were not too many tourists. The only thing that I did not like is that the surrounding area seemed unsafe.

Really it is more of an outdoor art space. Make sure when you arrive you go and get an English language leaflet before you start your walk around.

This is certainly worth a visit. So much to see. The tombs are like art pieces and the variation is enormous. The ossuary is amazing and surprisingly large. Such a shame there is very little information around if you don’t read italian. Be there early...More

I would place a visit here in the category of “hidden gem.” Some have suggested that Milan is often not the primary destination of an Italian visit; and as that’s perhaps the case, a local cemetery even less so. But here you capture, all be...More

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.
