In the heart of the 'centro storico' (historical centre) this nobleman's house from the XIX Century, Poldi Pezzoli, has a patrimony of treasures collected by himself, difficult to imagine. I particularly found very interesting the old watch collection or timekeeping devices that worked with the solar shade. Not to name the jewellery, the antique furniture, the paintings, the crystals,the weaponry....and... More

A real gem of a museum hidden away in a backyard. Beautiful old house and an interesting art collection with some paintings from the greatest italian painters like Botticelli. Highly recommend a visit!

Just around the corner basically from La Scala is the Museo Poldi Pezzoli, one of the finest formerly private collections in Milan. Rooms are laid out very nicely, with good signage to guide patrons through the maze (there are some points where you go outside the building or up and down stairs). The Museo is not limited to painting, like... More

This museum, though not very famous, is a must for art lovers! It's an amazing collection of paintings (mostly 14th and 15th century), precious objects (china, sculptures, watches etc.) in a beautiful 19th century appartement.

Within walking distance from the Opera house, this house museum should be in everybody's list. Even if you are not interested in art, this place is worth a visit since it contains different types of collections and some of the rooms are a attraction on their own. We also found the museum ticket office staff to be extremely helpful and... More

Small, beautiful, friendly - this is the model for the ultimate museum. No endless halls, No ogling crowds, no didactic art curated exhibitions. Just a discerning collection of beautiful art and object of art well presented.

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.
