 The  Cimitero Monumentale de Milan was another must see  destination during  my visit to Milan.   Opened in  1866,  it consolidated several smaller cemeteries.   It is known for  the famous Italians  buried there  and it’s  many beautiful  artistic tombs, monuments and mausoleums.   If you have ever experienced  grief, there are some monument  sculptures in this cemetery that will bring  you to your knees.

“If tears could build a stairway,

and memories a lane,

I’d walk right up to heaven

and bring you home again.”

He kindly stopped for me:

The carriage held but ourselves and immortality”

    Never have I seen such a cemetery. Wonderful! Thanks for sharing, Jeannie. All your pix and commentaries take us to places we never even knew existed. This cemetery is absolutely one of my favorites.
