A must-see.


The size of the Cimitero Monumentale is striking even when just looking from the outside. The Famedio dominates the entrance square and is the Memorial Chapel where the most worthy citizens of Milan are buried or remembered.

During the private guided tour we will wander among the gorgeous tombs and monumental chapels to go through the historical events of Milan and its artistic history from Realism and Eclecticism, to Art Nouveau and Symbolism, from the 30ies to the Contemporary age. You will be impressed looking at the works of art of the most remarkable Italian sculptors and architects who worked for important industrial families like Campari (producers of the famous aperitif), Falck, Bocconi (founder of the University of Economics) or for the conductor Arturo Toscanini. In this graveyard is even buried Hermann Einstein, father of the physicist Albert.

The tour is available every day except on Mondays.

A Recent Review of this tour

Walking through the Milano Cemetery with Barbara was like walking with a wise friend. Last week I visited Milano Monumental Cemetery with the tour guide Barbara Q. It was an overwhelming visit: the cemetery is a magical spot and discovering it by Barbara's hand was the perfect combination. She has a passion for both art and history, and a deep understanding of culture too. Furthermore, she recommended me some picturesque places to taste coffee and Italian deli foods.
