As with so many cities with a rich past, Milan has given one place to house its archeological finds. If you are looking for glitzy, posh, pristine museums like you might find in Naples or Rome, this is not going to satisfy you very much....More

Went here with my Milano Museums card-- the setting (ancient Roman towers & courtyard) was as much of a draw as the collections themselves. And don't miss the adjoining fantastic San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore Church & Convent next door (entrance to that is free).

Very well organized and interesting musem. Although quite small, it's very informative. Majority of the museum is about pre-Roman and Roman times. It's not on a main tourist path, so it's very quiet inside. Majority of stuff have translations. Worth visiting.

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
