This museum is inside the Castello Sforzesco in Milan. It houses a lot of medieval and renaissance paintings, weapons, armors, statues displayed in many rooms. One of the most important pieces is the Rondanini Pieta sculpted by Michelangelo. Also don't miss the huge room ceiling painted by Leonardo.

I've been to Milan multiple times, but never took the time to see the Museums. This one is wonderful because for one low admission price (I think Fridays are still free), you gain admittance to all the different museums and castles. If you don't have much time, you can go directly to Michelangelo's Pietà Rondanini or Leonardo da Vinci's Hall... More

This museum is great even for the art buffs who don't have time because in less than 30 minutes they get to see Leonardo da Vinci's Hall of Boards and Michelangelo's Pietà Rondanini. If Leonardo's tree-painted ceiling is great, Michelangelo's unfinished dead Christ is deeply inspiring. Admission charge is affordable and covers all Castle museums. Friday afternoon free admittance for... 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.
