Passed this on a tour of the City and the Tour guide said it was worth a visit. Very unassuming exterior but inside magnificent with every surface covered in paintings and frescoes. also some archeological sites next door. well worth a trip.

Not to be missed. You must book in advance to be admitted, individually or as part of a tour. many tours join several sites including the main Cathedral - The Duomo

I was early for an appointment one day and decided to pop into this church, which I often pass by, and the neighboring archaeological museum. The frescoes are magnificient and the place in the process of being restored. If you have ever wanted to see restoration up close - you can view it from 2 feet away here! This is... More

I visited here recently (we're a family of 4, including 2 toddlers), and this is a nice, little church with amazing paintings throughout on the inside. The outside doesn't give much away, but (like other churches we saw in Milan) once inside, it is impressive. We spent <1 hour here, and did not go into the museum they have (did... More

You can see much better frescos in the heart of Milano. The church, from the outside, is totally anonimous in a greysh Corso Magenta with clattering trams passing in front of it, but once you get inside you will be astonished. If possible, meaning not during religious services, try to get into the back part of it, and keep your... More

We went there out of curiosity - we wanted to find out for ourselves why so many people rated this church as excellent. In the moment one part of the chapel in the front is under restoration, so one cannot see everything. The visitors are compensated for this: the entry is free now. But the small building site did not... More

This quaint church may look a little underwhelming from the outside but the frescos inside make it probably one of the most impressive historical sites to visit in Milan. It's a little hard to find but very nearby the Duomo, the locals we asked were more than happy to help.

We visited this little church on our visit to Milan and it was fabulous. The nave area of the church is full of religious frescos which one of the guides kindly explained to us the symbolism and how they were painted by the school of Da Vinci. It was so lovely to sit in this peaceful church and just admire... More

Wonderful little place. The inside is covered in fresco's and well worth a visit. Its tucked away in Milan not easy to find unless you have a map or the trip advisor city guide app for the GPS mapping will point you in the right direction! It is free to get in, but be warned its not very big. Its... More

Stopped in here after viewing The Last Supper. Both were the best part of our visit to Milan. Amazing artwork with short descriptions that are also in english
