The Monumental Cemetery (Cimitero Monumentale) features an amazing collection of sculptures and elaborate mausoleums. Don’t feel guilty about visiting as a tourist – just be respectful.

The cemetery is free to visit and open every day (8 am until 6 pm) except Monday. Nearest metro stop Monumentale, line M5.

Apparently, you can ask for a map that shows the most famous tombs – there are even guided tours. But, if you’re like us, just roll up, wander around and marvel at this 250.000 square metre, open-air museum.

Piazzale Cimitero Monumentale, 20154 Milano MI, Italy.
