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.

Great museum describing the history of Milan from ancient times through the Middle ages. They have nice selections of Greek, Roman and Etruscan artifacts. It's only a 10 minute walk from Duomo.

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
