This was the reason I visited Genoa and I was not disappointed. Wonderful photos! Make sure you stop at the office for a map before proceeding on your own or you WILL get lost! more »
Absolutely amazing sculptures! The best I've ever seen yet (thanks ViasatHistory short series :) Some statues do look like they are alive (marble eye lashes, why not?). Indeed, some pieces could've been kept in better condition, yet it's an old and still functional cemetery with all burials and repairs going on. Free parking near the place. We've entered for free, though some say there's admittance fee.
Very impressive. Really fill of time death and glory. Maybie spend 3 -4 hr.s is enough... quite big space to see and look.
