Why visit a cemetery when you’re on vacation, you ask? The tombs at this Milan burial ground offer a great glimpse of Italian artistic styles from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Get the guide at the entrance and have a walk between the monumental tombs where well know men and women have been buried. Famous artists, politicians and singers sleep here in tombs that look like pieces of arts. It worths the visit
