Milano’s Monumental Cemetery is a large open-air museum and was designed by the architect Carlo Maciachini as more of a garden for strolling around.
In autumn, the quiet pathways are tinged with a thousand hues to be admired, and the foliage acts as a stunning backdrop to sculptures and monuments created by some of the greatest 19th and 20th-century artists.
There are plenty of itineraries to discover the most beautiful tombs, and we suggest one of the most unusual ones: if you follow a secondary avenue on the left of the entrance, you’ll reach the Campari tomb. The family, famous for its well-known brand of aperitifs, chose to build a larger than life-size bronze sculpture of the Last Supper.
Entrance: Piazzale Cimitero Monumentale
How to get there: M5 Monumental stop | M2 Garibaldi stop | Trams 2, 4, 10, 12, 14, 33
