“Beautiful and Unique”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

The monumental cemetery is definitely unlike anything I've seen before. First of all, it's much bigger than I had pictured. The massive monuments stretch as far as you can see in all directions. It's very beautiful and peaceful, and a bit of a surreal experience. It's a bit of a hike from the Duomo, it took about 25-30 minutes to walk there. However, you can walk through the Brera along the way, which is a very nice area. It's a nice way to spend an hour to two.

“Magnificent and majestic!!!”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Even though I had read about this place, I was not at all prepared for the magnificence of it! It's just like walking around a city of tombstones and monuments - one bigger than the other. No words can describe the awestriking beauty of this place! You must see it for yourself!

“nice place to think about life”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

For me this place is definitely worth visiting in Milan. It's quiet, full of tree shades and nice architecture and statues.
There are two choices:
*Take a promenade by alone or with a close friend and have a nice conversation about life meanings.
*Join an excursion and find out something interesting about families and architecture.

I chose the first one.

“Moving and personal cemetery”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

A collection of magnificent statues and artwork - better than many museums. A must see if you like evocative and very emotive bronzes and marble. I spent the entire day there...

“Go if you have time and want some peace”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

The place is really beautiful and calm. You can easily walk around taking pictures and admire the amazing architecture, or just sit down somewhere and appreciate the silence.
