after 3 months 'visiting' Milan, this is definitively the nicest church in Milan. Don't miss it! It's worth a visit

Beautiful church, part of a convent, split into 2 parts, one for the nuns, one for the public. Today both are open for public. Take a coffee at Pasticceria marchesi. (at the bar). We saw this a part of the excellent Last Supper & Hidden Gems tour from milan-museums

This place is one of those attractions for which you will love Milan. You can't imagine how beautiful it is, unless you will come here and see it with your eyes. The recent 30years renovation has revealed un incredible serie of frescos: you should consider to hire a guide to experience this fantastic visit at the best possible level. http://photographingaround.me/2015/06/25/afterwork-shooting-at-san-maurizio/

The facade is very deceiving as you enter a church full of stunning examples of painted frescos, well worth a visit and free entry to the church.

Although it looks like an ordinary simple church on the outside, the interior presents tourists with a wonderful architectural jewellery, a true proof of the Italian history.

Wonderful to see the Last Supper even though it has suffered over the time. It was actually far better than we had expected due to the latest restoration work. Well worth seeing

The fresco's are stunning and there are even more when you pass through into the back room. The interior is astounding and a shame to miss as it is just down the road from The Last Super fresco. All the stories are there, Adam & Eve, Noah's Arc and of course, the crucifixion. Literally an illustrated version of the bible.... More

Definitely walk over and have a look at this beautiful church. It's simply filled wall to wall with frecoes. Milan's Sistine Chape, indeed.

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.
