All except Casa Museo Boschi Di Stephano have admission charges but you can buy a combined visit card at the other three which will save you at least €12.00. Also note that the Museo Poldi Pezzoli in this network is one... More

Working in London at the Sir John Soane's Museum, I was very thrilled to visit an Italian house-museum! Before getting there, I had a view to a couple of pictures ... but I wasn't expecting that at all!!!! This house museum is such a mesmerizing place. It shows how the Bagatti-Valsecchi's brothers with a great interest in art, antiques and... More

This is a beautiful place, all rooms are full of Renaissance furniture and design elements. The museum provides free audio guide so you can easily understand why this place was important and how the two funding brothers worked on all of its rooms and elements.

This palace was owned by 2 brothers, both passionate about all things Renaissance. They each had an apartment within the house, and they filled - even over-filled - all the rooms with a collection of paintings, armour, furniture, tapestries. Some were genuine, but most were very good copipes/pastiches by talented contemporary artists and artisans. It makes for a somewhat overwrought... More

This is a little gem amongst the museums of Milan. We did not know that they only open at 1pm so when we arrived at 11 am they were closed. So glad we decided to do something else first and then go back in the afternoon. The whole place is stunning and we can highly recommend it.

I went there especially since I had read it had one of the best museum shops in Milan. It does not have a museum shop. The guides were very warm and attentive, nevertheless. BTW, the best museum shop I have been in is the Prado in Madrid.

This museum is exactly what I would think of a hidden pearl. Such a beauty these brothers put into their house I didn't know where to look at. They had good taste and eye for detail so everything fits together. Wonderful!

Only open in the afternoons but do give concessions to seniors. Staff very helpful but found it a bit dour. Skulls were interesting.

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.
