Top ways to experience Palazzo Reale and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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 view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.

The worst experience in Milan, the organization of the museum is the most ridiculous I have ever seen in all Europe. We arrived at 9:40 and the museum opened at 10. We have not pre booked. The line in front of us had 15 people. One hour after the opening we had 6 people in front of us and we decided to leave. They were allowing groups of 8 people every time from the pre bookings and putting 2 people every 20 minutes from the non pre bookings. Ridiculous and completely outrageous. The funny thing is that at 11:00 something like 150 people were waiting in the line.

Went to the Dolce & Gabbana exhibition in this museum. Booked tickets online before arrival and with a timeslot. The exhibition was amazing, different themed rooms to walk through with immersive sounds and lights. Gift shop was good but a little pricey. Well worth a visit.

Palazzo Reale besides its history,today is an important cultural center with major exhibitions -highly appreciated by thousands of people (locals and tourists)-.
Queues to get tickets can be very long on weekends (several years ago I was waiting 2 hours to get in -Marc Chagall exhibition).
This time I got my ticket online for Picasso Metamorfosi exhibition.

I always enjoy the thematic bookshop in PReale at the end of each exhibition where you can buy gifts (pricey but nice).

Worth a visit... a few minutes walk from Piazza del Duomo..

We visited this exhibition at short notice at 5 pm on a cold, wet late afternoon. It was notionally opened to 7:30 pm, but people were still being admitted around 7 pm as there were also private group tours beyond time. The exhibition was fabulous with about 20 Caravaggio's beautifully displayed in an uncluttered way. No photography is allowed. Controlled entry meant that it was not too crowded and if I got caught up in a tour group, I only had to wait a minute or two for them to move on to have an unobstructed view of the painting. I would recommend booking ahead to minimise waiting time for entry - you don't need a hard copy of the booking, people were able to show an electronic version on their phones. We did not book and decided to chance it. We waited about 40 mins late in the day. The queue was not all that long, but the attendants only allowed about 10 people in at a time every 7-10 mins (in addition to those who had booked). When you arrive at the Palazza from the square in front of the Duomo, do not queue up for the museum but walk through the building to the other side and find the correct queue. The left one for unticketed people, the middle for groups and the right one for people with timed tickets. You need to climb a large staircase to the first floor where the ticket office is (there must be a lift somewhere, so ask if you need it). The audio guide comes free with the tickets (I think 13 euros per person) although if you want an earpiece it is an extra 1.5 euros. I used my own earbuds from my phone. While not all the famous Caravaggio's are in the exhibition, it is an excellent collection from Europe and USA. Quite a treat and well worth the effort.

The Caravaggio exhibition was the reason for the visit to Milan.
The exhibition lived up to all of our expectations.
The paintings were well displayed in the majestic surroundings of the Palazzo Reale. The technology added to the overall experience.
On the way out we were treated to an exhibition of Costumes from La Scala

If you are in Milan in summer 2015, go so see this exhibit. It has some paintings, some models and lots of drawings and illustrates incredibly the hand of this master. Don't miss it!

We visited Milan in January and luckily they decided to extend the exhibition to allow more people to see it. We arrived in plenty of time for the opening at 1.30pm and there was already a queue , mostly Italians. We queued for about an hour and a half but it was worth it. The paintings were beautiful and the audio tour was extremely helpful in navigation the exhibition and giving information about the paintings.
After the exhibition we exited through an exhibition of opera costumes designed by fashion designers.

Wonderful exhibition, so many De Chirico masterpieces and works, Luckily the "Milanoguida" guide, Valentina, was able to enhance the artist and explained with originality and fantasy, thanks to her deep knowledge and preparation.
Warmly recommended!!!
