It is really a...royal palace

I was here for the exhibition on Mucha's works, but I could admire the interiors of this palace. Very refined, elegant and typical.

This is a really astonishing exhibition: a great occasion to see some of the best paintings from Budapest Fine Arts Museum. The set-up is well organized, with each room representing a different century. Madonna Esterhazy by Raffaello is one of the best paintings but I also enjoyed a lot The lamentation of Christ by Maerten van Heemskerck, Salome by Lucas... More

I went to visit Giotto Exibition. It was really crowded but it worth the full time spent for it, Giotto is more modern than what you could imagine.

situated to the rear of the Duomo in the heart of milan. Not always easy to get in because of the popularity but always something of interest for those interested in the arts. Usually three exhibitions at a time and some are free.

I'm sure the quality varies wildly depending upon the current exhibition, but I found the "Da Raffaello a Schiele" exhibition, which runs until 7 February, to be the art highlight of my visit--exceeding both of the main Pinotecas (Brera and Ambrosiana). It's less than half the size, but the quality is superb.

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.

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.

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

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.
