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.

There is no other cemetery like this one. It's sheer size is incredible and the number and diversity of its monuments, mausoleums, and bronze or stone statues is amazing. You could spend most of a day here and not see everything and if you are not uneasy with cemeteries you should definitely go to see something that is more akin... More

The entrance to Cimitero Monumentale is majestic. The cemetry honours its name as it is a monument, filled with statues in different styles like art deco, art nouveau, expressionism, symbolism, modern art. One can spend hours in this peaceful and beautiful parc.

maybe it is a bit morbid but this was my favourite "attraction" in Milan. i liked it a lot and if you have time you walk for hours and hours, if not, an hour is enough to get the taste of what it looks like. it is a very different place :) it is a bit out of the centre... More

Our hotel was near the cemetery so we thought "why not" tour it. While the front is impressive with many statues, etc. when you walk beyond the wall it is nothing short of amazing. We spent about 2 hours and could have doubled that or more (except that it was closing time). All I can say is Wow. One crypt... More

Take advantage of the free guided tour. The memorials and architecture were beautiful. Its the resting place of many famous poets, and those who made history in Milan. You can spend hours and love every minute of it

I know it may sound a bit gruesome, and I thought the same when my photo group proposed me to go there to take some pictures, but I changed my mind. As the slogan says, it is an OPEN AIR MUSEUM. Some Italian and international men of genius are buried here (such as Alessandro Manzoni, Salvatore Quasimodo, Isaac Newton, Francesco... More

Strolling down the paths of this monumental cemetery is like taking a trip down Milan's very own memory lane. Unless you go on a grey/rainy day, it isn't gloomy at all, au contraire. Sundays can be quite crowded, so pick a day in the middle of the week if you like the peace and quiet. If you're a fan of... More

The Monumentale - cemetery is well know for being the resting place of poets, politicians , musicians and very special people who lived , worked or simply had a special connection with Italy . To be buried in the Monumentale it's an honor and it involved a very special stoner granite grave with a guest building attached or a private... More

This place was the place in Milano that I like the most. There was so many statues and buildings that you will just get lost walking there. Definitely worth to visit.

Neighbourhood Profile
Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.
