This is an unassuming frontage, but believe me it is so worth a visit. The interior is interesting and beautiful. The historical context is fascinating. There were a number of volunteers in the building the day I went, who were friendly and charming, something that had been lacking in other places in Milan and so were another pleasant addition to...

The frescoes come alive-I have seen people on the streets with similar features and it is possible to imagine what they are saying to each other. Such realistic, natural pictures.

Free admission to a jewel box of a church covered in frescoes. Not called Milan's Sistene Chapel for no reason. The area is also good for shopping and eating.

It is obvious why this church is referred to as the Sistene Chapel of Milan. It is truly beautiful and worth a visit by those traveling to Milan.

Outside looks just ok. Inside is amazing! A lot of painting everywhere. Opposite of the most part of the Milano museums and attractions, that is FREE.

We were so surprised-the exterior is unassuming - walk inside, and it takes your breath away! The "Sistine Chapel of Milan" is accurate- every surface beautifully painted with biblical scenes and gorgeous angels- a fantastic depiction of Noah's Ark, another Last Supper... many biblical stories are told beautifully. Do not miss this work of art!!

A hidden gem in bustling Milan. Next door to the Museum of Archaeology. It was quiet and beautiful. Visit both

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.
