The museum is housed in three palaces on the corner opposite La Scala. The visit starts with the temporary exhibition - presently the 20c "Arte Come Rivelazione" with works from the usual suspects - Warhol, Basquiat, Rauschenberg etc- plus less well known Italian artists from...More

I just dropped in on a Sunday afternoon and was pleasantly surprised at the scope of art works on display from old masters to modern work and the place is vast.

The Galleria has one of the most exquisite interiors i have ever seen in Italy. The walls and floors are draped in different coloured marble which adds an elegance that is beyond my wildest imagination. I really appreciated the Contemporary Art exhibitions - paying particular...More

Having read reviews since returning home, I feel we may have missed some of the rooms here. The building itself is stunning and entry is free so its definitely worth a visit. There was a small collection of 19th century and Impressionist paintings that I...More

We enjoyed the art and adjoining coffee shop. Do not miss the ceiling in the building, they are quite spectacular. I think the building was originally the Italian Commercial Bank Building.

The Caravaggio exhibition is a joke if you are expecting to see several Caravaggio's paintings as there is just a single one exhibited, the other have been painted by his followers or contemporaries. BUT, I went to other rooms far from the crowd and I...More

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
