Owner description: 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.

“Really MONUMENTAL!!!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Really beautiful and terrific place. Friendly ladies at reception. But you will not find any information about it in typical travel guide. Strictly recommended for visit if you have more that one day in Milano.

“Boring”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

This place has good architecture and a lot of graves but is boring.I wouldn't really recommend unless you are done with other parts of the city and left only with this one.

“Well worth your time”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

This place certainly worths a few hours if you have in Milan. There are a huge number of elegant monuments and architectures - rather amazing. It feels like a sculpture park, not a cemetery. There are at least two sculptures that describe the story of the last super: one huge one near the middle and one smaller one near the edge. Both have slightly different arrangements of the figures from the famous painting. I wish I have more time. If you can, go there with a local, since I have no idea who were these families - all must be rich and famous at the time.
