Admire artistic tombs at Monumental Cemetery, a large cemetery opened in 1866. Several of the tombs were designed by renowned artists. Enter through the large, Neo-medieval-style Famedio that contains the tombs of some of Italy's most honored citizens. Look for the exhibit of prints, photographs, and maps outlining the cemetery's historical development. Next, wander through the cemetery to discover both contemporary and classical Italian sculptures, as well as Greek temples, elaborate obelisks, and more. Visit the Civico Mauoleo Palanti to see the memorial built for 800 Milanese killed in Nazi concentration camps.

Monumental Cemetery reviews
I am so glad that we went. You don't need a guide. You don't need a plan. Just walk leisurely and appreciate the tributes to those who have gone before us. Better than Pere Lachaise in Paris...

It's a very interesting landmark in Milano and it's really worth a visit. The most surprising is the crematory as they left the doors open for the visitors. If you want to escape the crowded places and to enjoy some unique sculptures, check this place out!
I never knew I would be interested in visiting a place like cemetery in Milan. It's richly laid with beautiful sculpture and way it has been maintained so well even after decades took me by surprise. We were shown in a small guided tour, how they are working on maintaining the sculptures.Do attend if you have time. Also check out the literature they have at their office desk. Would surely recommend. Keep 3-4 hours in hand to visit this entire place.
