This is an absolutely beautiful former palace that has been turned into a stunning museum full of important Italian artworks. Most of the best paintings are from the 1800s and 1900s.. including work by Canova, Hayez, and Boccioni. It's right by the Scala opera house.

Lovely place to visit anyway, plus the current Canaletto exhibition. A gem of Milan, but cheap tickets available without booking (this was UK half-term and the city generally busy). The cafe is as good/better than most I saw in Milan, yet so reasonably priced. Really...More

There is parking but you must be very lucky to park nearby because it is always or nearly always occupied. I recommend you leave the car in the outskirts and have a walk. There are many places to go and visit and if you like... More
