The Cimitero Monumentale [tʃimiˈtɛːro monumenˈtaːle] ("Monumental Cemetery") is one of the two largest cemeteries in Milan, Italy, the other one being the Cimitero Maggiore. It is noted for the abundance of artistic tombs and monuments.
Designed by the architect Carlo Maciachini (1818–1899), it was planned to consolidate a number of small cemeteries that used to be scattered around the city into a single location.

I can't stress enough of how important it is to visit this place! It's absolutely free and was one of the best experiences I had in Milan. The cemetery is quite large so be ready to walk around for at least 2 hours if you want to see as much as possible. You can also explore the large building near the entrance. There are metro and tram stops nearby and the cemetery is very easy to find.

With full respect to the souls reset at this place, it is really does not look like a cemetery. You feel that you are walking in a museum full of art and prefect touch. Some of the monuments reflect sad story while others are showing the joy beyond our life. It is amazing how the artists translated the life of several people resting in the cemetery. Highly recommended.

Wonderful place to visit, one mausoleum greater that the next. The entrance is striking, even if you know what to expect. I could not find it in myself to leave, I kept finding more details to look at. Definitely a most if you go to Milan. After the Cathedral, it was my favorite.

I have never seen a cemetery like this one. Even from the outside will definitely catch your attention as the synagogues are monumental and unique in the scenery. Once you enter you will be circled by different types of tombs and statues which will enhance you and you may almost forget that you actually are in the cemetery.

Interesting place to visit. If you want to think about eternity & immortality of soul, you should go here. Besides that it is the only really quiet place in Italy.

An absolutely must to visit if you are in Milano. It's free, beautiful but shocking at the same time. Be prepared to spend at least an hour there, because you will just not get enough of the old sculptures on the top of the graves.

Whenever I hear about cemetery I always think about creepy things. But this one in Milan is worth a visit. Not only because it's free but because it doesn't look like a cemetery at all. It's more like a museum from the outside. Mostly who are buried there were known people and a lot of statues including the writer Manzoni.

Incredible place to visit. So many sculptures and buildings, impossible to describe with words. The best place I have visited in Milano. I would say better than the museum at Cariolli. The atmosphere, the magnificence of the place is breath taking!

An amazing City of the Dead. I've never seen a cemetery that came close to this one. Lots of crazy sculptures and buildings. A stroll inside is fascinating and for free.

The monumental size and the elaborated beauty of this building is incredible. Unfortunately we didn't have the time to walk through the park, just took a view from the top of the building. Definitely a must see place.
