Description

The Cimitero Monumentale (Monumental Cemetery) is one of the most important burial grounds in all of Italy. Join a Licensed Guide on a private tour of the cemetery to admire beautiful funerary art and immerse yourself in the collective memory of the people of Milan. Choose the 2-hour option for a guided tour of the Cimitero Monumentale. Take a walk through a monumental garden of sleep, the resting place of hundreds of ordinary and honorable citizens of Milan, including writers, artists, musicians, architects, politicians, sportsmen etc. The thoughtful commentary from your Private Guide will revive the memory of these people, bringing you closer to notable names such as Arturo Toscanini, Francesco Hayez and Alessandro Manzoni. The cemetery is known especially for the abundance of artistic tombs, monuments, contemporary and classical Italian sculptures, Greek temples, elaborate obelisks, and other original works by leading artists such as artists such as Adolfo Wildt, Gio Ponti and Arturo Martini. It’s a place where mourning meets beauty and admiration. During the guided tour you will see highlights such as the neo-classical Famedio (the “Hall of Fame”), the Campari family tomb titled ‘The Last Supper’, and the non-Catholic and Jewish sections. Choose the 3-hour option to book private transportation with your private tour of the Cimitero Monumentale. This option includes the 2-hour guided tour with a 1-hour round-trip transfer time between the meeting point and your Milan accommodation. Enjoy a convenient pickup and drop-off direct at your accommodation by a clean, air-conditioned vehicle.
