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.

The visit to the monumental cemetery was a great experience. I never saw such amazing and fine art before this. Each piece was an absolute masterpiece, no doubt. The monuments were made with so much care and expertise that I was not getting tired of staring at each of them. They were much bigger than I supposed them to be and very peaceful.

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.

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!

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.

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...
