This is a visual assault as not a space is unadorned! The plain exterior is wholly misleading as on entry it's just full on, in your face 'WOW'.

This is one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen. And it is not well known at all. It has been restored and is being "managed" by a group of volunteers. It is beautifully decorated with paintings, all over. It has a "back side" that is the private part of the church, that nuns were using, and this... More

It is not really a must-see attraction in Milan, but do drop by if you happen to be in the neighborhood.

All I can do is echo what others have said about this church. Unassuming from the outside, breathtaking on the inside. I have never been in such a beautiful church in my life. If you go to Milan you must visit this church. Completely free entry, no reservation. You can take photos (without flash) and you should because all the... More

When you came in Milan two are the main Church to visit, the Duomo and Chiesa di San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore. It is the most beautiful Church in Milan. You have a wonderful painting all over the Church, who is itself a piece of architectural landmark (made by Gian Giacomo Dolcebuono). The history of the Church is awesome and... More

It is cute, special in some way, easy to come and see. Nothing extraordinary though. Located in the centre, close to Duomo, on one of those shopping streets. You don't need any special effort to come here - just do it)

We had a couple of hours to kill on a Sunday morning before flying home and decided to walk to this fabulous building. The painted walls inside are fabulous, the story of Christ can be followed from wall to wall. Entrance to the building is free with donations encouraged and deserved! A great surprise for us was that the adjoining... More

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighborhood Profile
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 view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
