We had a couple of hours to kill on a Sunday morning before flying home and decided to walk to this fabulous building. The painted walls inside are fabulous, the story of Christ can be followed from wall to wall. Entrance to the building is free with donations encouraged and deserved! A great surprise for us was that the adjoining... More

Beatiful example of Lombard/Leonardian style of frescoes narrating allegories and scenes on early 16th C. history ( Italian Wars, Swiss Mercenaries etc ) and a beatiful organ with a mermaid ! Recently renovated , not to be missed.

The plain facade belies the colorful interior with floor-to-ceiling art. It's free and the visit is short, but it's a must-see.

Amazing frescoes adorn every inch of this church you can take photos but don't use a flash. Near to the Last Supper and an easy walk to the castle and Cathedral.

We visited this church and it did worth indeed. In fact, from my perspective, this is the best historic site in Milano. The architecture of this church and its 15th century wall paintings are exceptional. The entrance is free but you should consider making a donation for those volunteers managing the site and helping visitors with valuable information. A must... More

Behind the rather insignificant facade we discovered a beautiful little monastery church with almost romantic decorations in rich colours. A true must see!! Can be seen in 10 minutes - but it is worth staying much longer!

Loved this beautiful tiny church. Amazing frescoes full of colour and light. The last supper was our favourite fresco. Free admission.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
