It also has a very complete audio-guide system (included in the ticket... More

This well preserved sixteenth century mansion with its treasures of renaissance art is well worth a visit when you tire of the modern treasures in Via Montenapoleone nearby. The original architecture, grand staircases, furnishings and art are fascinating, and ably explained in many languages by the helpful guides.

This mansion belongs to a noble family and is located in the center of Milan’s fashion district. I have visited this place twice and have always found it amazing. This place has been decorated in a rich manner, which might seem gloomy to some. But it is worth a visit for some good photographs.

This is my favourite place to visit in Milan. It is nothing like a museum. You'll get amazed by the collection of painting and medieval weapons that these brothers got to put together. These two got their home made in the late medieval style as it was the fashion in the 19s Milan

This home of an aristocratic family is right in the center of the fashion district. The living quarters have been restored and illustrate how rich Milanese lived around 1900 (it was occupied by descendants until 1975). Though richly decorated, all the rooms were without exception very dark and almost sunless. Dark wood, dark wallpaper, and dark stone. It was gloomy... More

A must visit in the heart of the small item in big bag with big name and price shopping area. Step inside a wonderfully preserved and presented piece of history that is well narrated via a personal speaker etc.... Make sure to take time to appreciate the detail of what it took to put this together and remember this place... More

Some interesting stuff, but perhaps not worth €8 unless you have an interest in urban stately homes. The attached restaurant is fantastic, although very expensive...
