It is a great way to dip into many aspects of art without having to walk for miles in a crowded museum and we made it our very first visit of this trip on purpose, to get into the mood for visiting larger museums.
If your eyes are glazing over after seeing thousands of medieval and Renaissance works in Milan’s museums - including hundreds of masterpieces in this museum - check out the watch and clock collection.
