Europe has some fantastic cemeteries, and this one is no exception!
Massive monuments and intricate statues make the Monumental Cemetery in Milan a pretty cool place to be buried. Plus there’s a cemetery cat who snuck into a few of our photos!
My boyfriend and I spent about one and a half hours here. It's definitely a must-see if you're in the area. You'll be surprised just how many monuments are packed into the cemetery grounds.
Keep in mind: it's a cemetery, and it's Italy, so be respectful (no skimpy clothing, loud conversations, or screaming children).
