Great museum describing the history of Milan from ancient times through the Middle ages. They have nice selections of Greek, Roman and Etruscan artifacts. It's only a 10 minute walk from Duomo.

Best place to learn about early Milan (Mediolanum). Mediolanum was the most important Roman city in Northern Italy, an important east-west, north-south cross-roads. Several churches and other foundations about town testify to this history. This museum puts those pieces together.

We really enjoyed this museum. It's well set up with different eras on different floors. Do not miss the church next door.

This was a very interesting museum - unfortunately we visited at lunchtime so the basement and 3rd floor were shut, but it was very well laid out.

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
