Full description
The Monumental Cemetery of Milan is not just a cemetery, but a genuine open-air museum. Designed by the architect Carlo Maciachini in 1864 and inaugurated two years later, it is characterized by an eclectic style, harmonizing Byzantine and Gothic elements with a prevalence of the Romanesque style. If you really want to get to know Milan, visiting the Cimitero Monumentale is a must. All those people who played a role in the city's history rest inside it, from Alessandro Manzoni to Arturo Toscanini, Francesco Hayez to Filippo Tommaso Marinetti,  Sergio Bonelli to Guido Crepax,  Alda Merini to Franca Rame, and Enzo Iannacci to Giorgio Gaber. These are just some of the famous names that the Monumental Cemetery holds within its walls. The cemetery is an ideal place to discover the evolution of Milan's artistic trends between the 19th and 20th centuries. During the tour, your expert guide will give you an artistic and historical introduction on the cemetery, then you'll visit the Famedio - the city pantheon of famous people - and the crematory temple, one of the first ones to be built in Europe. You will also be able to admire and discover the history of about 15 selected graves, that either have artistic significance or are the final resting place of famous people.
