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.

  • This was probably our biggest surprise on the trip to Milan, and how beautiful and artistic all of the grave sites outside were. The indoor halls were very unique and different to anything we have...

  • I liked it very much. I never imagined that in a cemetery I would be able to admire so many works of art. Such a soothing place, huge and full of history, is worth a visit. There is even a map for visiting the famous tombs.
  • 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.
