Initially a family collection built up over centuries, there are some real gems. From Clocks and watches, religious icons, the collections of armour and porcelain. A very eclectic mix and worth going just to see the statue of Christ the redeemer, which is truly breathtaking.

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
