I have been here many times, but last some days ago to see Hokusai and Escher. They were just stunning. My only advice is to go - if possible - from Monday to Friday, otherwise you will queue a lot, especially for brand new exhibitions.

Was really impressed with the gallery. We stumbled upon it as I saw an Escher painting outside that really caught my eye. I was really impressed with this exhibition, especially after knowing very little about this artist or his work. I really liked the fact the gallery was open till late too.

We bought our tickets for the Palazzo Reale (EUR 12 each) and enjoyed the Hokusai exhibit - it was very long and gathered together a huge amount of works! After an exhausting 2 hours there, we went across the courtyard and up the stairs to what we thought was a continuation of the museum only to be told that to... More

Almost every time I visit this place I find very nice and interesting exhibitions. One ofnmy favourite in the past was "ARCINBOLDO". The palace itself is a pure beauty, I really suggest to take some time to visit it if you are in Milan.

Great art gallery currently exposing prints of Japanese masters (Hokusai, Hiroshige, Utamaro). With the full series of the 53 post stations of Tōkaidō, the 36 views of mount Fuji, the water falls and the bridges from Hokusai. Definitely worth visiting.

There has been a governmental building at this site, just Southeast of the Duomo, for many centuries. It gradually transformed into a fort and later evolved into a palace. It became a center of power around 1546, when the Governor of the region, Ferrante Gonzaga, set up residence here. Over the next five centuries, fires, war and remodeling projects transformed...

I must to admit it wasn't looking very promising outside but Ines inside is beautiful... breath taking the only bad thing is the furniture isn't very nice not according with the decoration. But I do recommend to go to visit

We saw two wonderful exhibitions. One of MC Escher and the other was Katsushika Hokusai. Not only were both extensive and well displayed but interesting from the standpoint of both being wood block print makers. If this is typical of this museum's performance then this is quire a place.

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.
