We were lucky as it was free entrance as it was the first Sunday of the month. This museum is just fabulous and you need a long time to see it. It just goes on for ages and you must see it. Fabulous art works.

The museum is housed in rooms bearing Sforza and Spanish era decorations, with many interesting items from the ancient history of the city and surrounding region. I can understand that it is not so interesting for everybody, especially with the ongoing restoration, but for me...More

Badly organised, poor collection, never seen such a bad museum on this subject. And staff doesn't know anything, and only speeks Italian!

This part of Castello Sforzesco museums covers mostly medieval art, especially statues. Besides that, the rooms are amazing themselves with painted ceilings, including one of them painted by Leonardo.

I've been to Milan multiple times, but never took the time to see the Museums. This one is wonderful because for one low admission price (I think Fridays are still free), you gain admittance to all the different museums and castles. If you don't have...More

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
