We went there in a rainy day without any enthusiasm, and we didn't regret at all! It is bigger than it seems to be from the outside. Beautiful painting and architecture. I only regret we didn't get more information.

Well worth a visit - not as many crowds as the Duomo when we visited (around noon) and the museum next door is well worth a visit too. Fabulous frescoes.

We took the City Wonders tour. il Duomo (vip entrance), La Scala (only from outside (😒), Artesanian Street, Castillo Sforzesco and Last Supper (vip entrance). They delivered what they promised. Guide Katerine was excellent. Before taking this tour I would recommend to visit exhibition "il Mondo de Leonardo" (the World of Leonardo da Vinci), especially room #6 where is an... More

Amazing photo opportunity. So many beautiful paintings in the monastery, which is no longer used as a church. The history of the church and the life of the monks and nuns is super interesting. I would count this as one of our favorite things we did while in Milan

This is one of the hidden 'gems' of Milan. The outside is simple and does not prepare you for the beautiful frescos inside the building. This church sits on the site of the oldest and largest female convent in Milan (8-9th century). The walls of the two halls are completely covered by colourful frescos. The smaller Hall of Nuns is...

Considered the sixtine chapel of lombardi, a masterpiece. All its frescoes, the old history of the covent, a must go.

Wonderful art and architecture. And the best thing is free English speaking guides who are helpful and really want to educate you about the place.

I originally thought that this had to be booked as a trip, but found out that actually it is free to the public, so having viewed Da Vinci's Last Supper at Santa Maria del Grazie, as an early morning slot, I made my way back to the Monastero Maggiore which had just opened, and I was able to visit with...

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.
