Well not necessarily easy to find like many places in Italy but definitely WORTH THE TRIP:-)
A wonderfull piece of architecture that ranks on par with TajMahal, Alhambra or Versailles.
Beware...like many highlyy interesting Italians the monument closes between 12.00 ans 14.30.....But for who is patient the reward is there.
The main facade is just extraordinary with too much sculpture to wonder in the Italian hot sun. The inside is as exciting as the outside Wirth mervelous paintings and sculptures, un particular thé beautifull tombs. The problem is to get in-....Yes...you have succeeded passing the main gate during the small scheduled opening hours and expect to rush into the choir and cloisters to admire the many masterworks...well you're wrong. As often the case in Italy, things tend to be more complex and you patiently have to wait for a guard that comes in and assesses the quantity of waiting tourists before confirming that "yes indeed the choir and closters shall be open for visit, when? Well later on" before a onk arrives 20 minutes later and guides you in the fascinating choir and the two closters: the first finely decorated cloister with stunning views upon the church tower and main building and the second unusually large cloister with wide individual appartments that, to some extent remind us the Belgian beguinages.
A marvelous piece of art and history not to be missed when in the Milano area.
