worth taking a tour

We visited here as part of a tour so it was very informative and well organized. We were here to see the Leonardo de vinci exhibition which was great.

Across the square from the Duomo, the former royal palace serves as an exhibition space. We saw two very good special exhibitions, one featuring a selection of paintings from the National Gallery of Budapest, and one of works by Giotto. Both are well worth seeing, but the Budapest exhibition is especially fine, with the Raffael Madonna as a notable attraction... More

I attempted to book tickets for the Giotto Exhibition on Musement, thinking it was the official site. When I received my voucher it was for the wrong date and the wrong month and I immediately wrote to them. No refund given nor would they change the date, apparently it was my fault and not a glitch on their site!!! Still... More

Great exhibition of art from the 16th Century to the beginning of the 20th. A free English audio guide is included in the price and explains in a very easy style how art progressed over the period. It's a delight and a breath of fresh air after a lot of religious art in many galleries.

If you have two hours in Milan, spend them at the breathtaking Leonardo exhibition at the Palazzo Reale. They have brought in three iconic works from the Louvre: Saint John the Baptist, La Belle Ferroniere and the small Annunciation (not the large one at the Uffizzi) and many others from museums around the world. The exhibition is excellently curated, and... More

It is really amazing. The ticket includes the audio guide (English / Italian), which provides some context and highlights some details that might miss you at a first glance. Very well organized.

This is a not to be missed temporary exhibit of Leonardo drawings and some paintings from all over the world. The breadth and depth of the collection is unparalleled. Buy tickets in advance as they are not easy to obtain at the museum

One of the most beautiful palaces of the city. It usually hosts exhibitions around the greatest Italian painters. A ticket is usually required so you may want to check online prior to your visit. The architecture of the building is worth a visit alone.

From the outside the Palazzo Reale is plain, overshadowed by the impressive Duomo and the newly renovated Modern Musuem next door. However it is the former Palace and 24 of its rooms have been given over to this exhibition. On the positive side there are many drawings that impressed, there are paintings and sculptures too, and items from contemporaries and... More

What I liked about this space is the various exhibit options. I was able to see pieces from the Duomo and two great exhibits. Some of the best selections of Da Vinci art as well as Italian artists employed during the height of the Renaissance by the Sforza family. Each installation was set up expertly with great explanations in English.... More

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
