Beautiful, quite and sadness place in Milan with amazing, incredible monuments and tombs of rich and famous people. It looks like an open-air museum where you can think about life and walking along the tombs admiring majesty and splendour crypts.

This cemetery is an incredible display of wealth and patronage of sculpture artists, offering visitors a wonderful display unlike any other in the world. Free of charge to visit, it makes for a very pleasing stroll, easy on the eye & to get to via public transport. Really enjoyed our visit.

Beautiful statues and monuments to the deceased in the middle of the city. Easy to spend a couple of hours here.

This is a wonderful place to go. Just hop on a tram. Such an awe inspiring setting with amazing tombs. The Campari Family Tomb with a life size sculpture of The Last Supper was memorable. For a tourist, Milan can be difficult on either a Sunday or Monday when shops and Museums are closed. This was a perfect place to... More

Walked north from the center of China Town and went in at Via Niccolini to this huge cemetery and sculpture garden. The cemetery is divided into a Christian, a Catholic and a Jewish gardens. They have a sign, where you enter, showing the layout of the gardens. Unfortunately, we were looking for a couple of sculptures we had read about,... More

Unbelievable that cemetery can be so beautiful. A must visit tourist destination. We were not planning to visit this. However this turned out to be one of the best tourist destinations in Milan.

This was an absolute highlight. I love cemeteries anyway, and this is one of the very best I've ever seen. Fascinating monuments and perfect for those who love architecture. Each is a work of art. Many famous tombs too. And it's free, and each to reach on the metro. Fascinating and worth a visit. I could have spent hours there.

A fascinating visit. The cemetery is HUGE, laid out in wide gravelled drives, and with tombs crammed cheek by jowl along every avenue. The tombs are very grand, and in a wide variety of styles. We went on a sunny morning which happened to be All Saints' Day, when Milanese families take giant pots of chrysanthemums to lay at the... More

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.
