About 15 minutes walk from Piazza Duomo, I arrived at this amazing gem in the center of Milano. The external facade is nothing special. The church is divided into 2 sections, one for the faithful people and one where in the past the nuns stayed,...More

Frescoes from front to rear. This little church looks unimpressive from the street but wait bun til you pay your two euros and take a walk inside!

This was a pleasant surprise. The ceilings and walls were beautifully decorated and had a charming fresco of Noah's Ark. One of the highlights of our visit to Milan.

Everyone is right - the inside of this church is truly stunning. I particularly loved the Noah’s ark fresco. The frescos are in very good condition too. Quite lovely.

This 15th Century Church has the most amazing frescoes in Milan and they cover every inch of every wall and ceiling. The church is absolutely stunning. We were spell-bound! Save a few hours to see the Civico Archeologico museum next door.

This church looks nondescript from the outside, but is Milan's answer to the Sistine Chapel without the crowds! The main chapel is beautiful, but the highlight for us was going through the door into the nun's cloistered area. Many saints are beautifully depicted over every...More

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

Hi Freddyblu! Although the church of San Maurizio is still consecrated, masses are no longer being celebrated there. Nevertheless, you should visit the church to see its beautiful frescoes.
