Once found was excellent

Please don't make the same mistake I made trying to find the office with the map I was given when purchasing the tickets. Go to the Milan Visitor Center. We looked for two hours and was given 20 different places from the locals. Next time I will ask for a address. By the time we found the hop on hop off stop we could only use it for one day and purchased a two day ticket.

I was able to enjoy this visit with my son and we were really excited about it. The guide, very professional but also affable and welcoming, illustrated the wonders of the Monumental Cemetery with a wealth of details and stories that allowed us to fully appreciate them. I highly recommend it.

Thanks to "Corona", Milan was not overcrowded. So the whole stay was very relaxed. The tour was informative and not boring at all.

Unfortunately I lived this beautiful experience in a heavy rain but thanks to the indications received I plan to return with the sun

Very interesting and pleasant

The very kind guide made us discover every secret of the monumental cemetery, punctual, very prepared and very friendly.
