One of the buildings is a former bank, and the teller stations and bank vault are still in place. The other two buildings are a former residence. The art was very eclectic and was worth the time to stroll through. They have a nice cafe...More

Their temporary exhibit wasn't my favorite, but it didn't even matter. The building is absolutely beautiful, and so are the permanent installations. If you're an art lover, you have to go.

The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square
is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon
