International visitors to Milan may not know who Manzoni was but this is a great place to visit. Manzoni was the Shakespeare of Italy and lived in the 19th century. The house is large and beautiful. It is very close to La Scala.

Unfortunately, the palace was not open to the public due to some minor renovations. Having peeked inside, it seems most of the exhibits from the museum were either covered or stored away somewhere else. Having said that, the façade of the building looks nice and...More

The Casa is right near the end of the the Galleria Vittorio. If you are in luck you can tour through the house which housed Italy's most famous author. Just in front of the very pretty façade is a great statue of the author.
