The attendant told us that the frescoes were Milan's equivalent of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican - he did not exaggerate. They are truly amazing.

The main church has really nice halls, but the best part is not in the first one, but when you come further through the laft passage, as if behind the altar.

We called in here after visiting the Last Supper. Beautiful frescoes cover every part of every wall on both sides of the dividing screen. Very friendly welcome.

From the outside it doesn't look like much but inside you are surrounded by stunning, colorful frescoes! The church has been beautifully restored thanks to the efforts of Banca Popolare di Milano. There are members of the Touring Club Italiano who greet you at the door and distribute informative brochures. The 16th century church exemplifies the decorative Milanese painting of... 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.
