Although compared to the Duomo, this church looks drab, go inside to be overwhelmed. Beautifully painted walls and ceiling. Once a convent, with a hidden order, you can go through to where the nuns attended mass, separate to the rest of the congregation. You can...More

Nicknamed “Milan’s Sistine Chapel”, this church has a completely different presentation, using mainly wall and ceiling paintings instead of statues. It’s not quite the Sistine, but you’ll recognize the vague comparison

On your way from the Last Supper to Duomo Square you will find this small church. Entrance is free. You will find amazing frescos in the style of Renaissance and Baroque. A place worth visiting, especially for architecture lovers.

Visited this twice and was stunned both times! The walls, ceilings, everything are covered in gorgeous frescoes and there is so much to see. Not too busy either!

If you are into frescoes, this is a crown jewel. I visited here as part of a short guided tour in Milan. The frescoes are wonderful.

I have passed by this church several times not knowing that it is the place of one of the most wonderful wall fresco decoration in whole Italy. Amazing place.

This little church crowned my stay in Milan. With a very unassuming façade, it can easily be overlooked. But that would be a shame. On the inside, almost every inch of it is covered with paintings. Its modest size and vivid colours help create an...More

This is one of the most incredibly decorated churches, so don't let a relatively unassuming exterior mislead you. Entrance is free - definitely step in and enjoy.

Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high

Hi Freddyblu! Although the church of San Maurizio is still consecrated, masses are no longer being celebrated there. Nevertheless, you should visit the church to see its beautiful frescoes.
