Such a hidden gem! Luckily I saw it on Tripadvisor before we came to Milan. Should be on the top of you attractions list

From the street, one couldn't guess the treasure this church is. It is separated into 2 parts (since it was part of an abbey and the nuns had a space separated from the wordly crowd in the same church). It was recently restored (the restoration is still going on) and the ceilings and the paintings are truly spectacular.

Chiesa di San Maurizio has old Roman walls surrounding the original medieval buildings giving a real strong sense of the history of Milan. Beautiful stained glass in the church, too.

Interesting but very small to see. Small church with beautiful paiting in there. Definitely ancient and in very good condition.

This highly recommended church does not disappoint. With the modest front you are surprised by the beautiful frescoes inside. The church is divided into two, one for the public and a hidden backroom for the nuns, access via the museum to the right. The hidden area was absolutely the most interesting part. Free entrance and a great break from a... More

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
