Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The best monumental cemetery in Europe ( Unesco world heritage ) and maybe one of the best in the world. Take the time to have a walk inside in a warm day. Peacefully and free entrance

This church and cemetery is a twenty minute bus ride outside of the city centre but it is well worth the visit. The cemetery is definitely one of the loveliest kept places of vigil I have ever come across. It's grounds are immaculate and the tributes equally as much. The church itself is beautiful inside with a large high ceiling and a marvellous altar which is so picturesque. The giant single steeple in it's grounds is also worth a look but I don't think it's door ever opens to go up inside. Not to be missed.

The cemetery is located a bit outside of town yet feels a world away. Behind the walls lies a serene green space filled with lush landscaping, imposing monuments and winding pathways. The graves vary from simple to majestic. Well worth a short visit when you feel the need to escape the usual tourist spots.

Enormous, labyrinthine cemetery with cloistered walkways, every section reveals something new. Fantastic sculptures, from the beautiful to the macabre. A wonderful place to walk for a few hours with every corner and every new section providing something amazing to look at. Half an hour’s walk from Piazza Maggiore, close to the Bologna FC Stadium. Not to be missed.

Monumental cemetery a bit outside Bologna, but still within walking distance. It has many departments, it is recommenndable to decide what you exactly want to see. It is probably too big to cover it in one visit. Beautifully positioned with great view on the Santuario di Madonna di San Luca.

The old part of this cemetery is full of beautiful sculptures and architecture, all with nice, green scenery. A lot of graves is damaged, which only add the thought of mystery and reflect how things pass away...

Incredible place, it’s like you’re in a deserted city. Long walk (45 to 60 minutes), since it’s a bit far from the city centre. On foot, walk via the porticos starting from Porta Saragozza. Not to be missed: Lucia Dalla’s tomb.

We sometimes went there just to feel peaceful and quiet. A monumental cemetery resembling Fellini's film Romeo and Juliet

It’s interesting how certain places retain their spiritual significance for long periods of time. During the 1800s Etruscan objects had been found sporadically here and in 1869 a tomb was uncovered leading to the realisation that the whole area had been an Etruscan necropolis back around 500BC.

The ‘modern’ development of the area as a cemetery followed the suppression by Napoleon of the monastery that had been on the site since the 14th century.

The cemetery became part of the European grand tour in the 19th century due to its fine sculpture. It’s fascinating to wander around this large cemetery and see the various ways in which death and the remembrance of loved ones was approached over the last few hundred years.

A number of famous Italians have their resting place here. The better known would include the composer Respighi, Alfieri Maserati founder of the car company and Nobel Prize winner Giosuè Carducci.

This is certainly an interesting way to spend a few hours and it’s easy to lose track of time as you wander around.

The office on the right as you come in the main entrance has a useful map showing the location of the better known tombs. A tick next to the entry indicates that the tomb has a form of cultural heritage listing in Italy.

If you like walking, the Certosa cemetery can be reached on foot in about 50 minutes leaving the city along Via Riva di Reno and then continuing along Via Sabotino.
