The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

An absolute hidden jewel that most locals don't know.
It's a small church but the wall paintings are stunning and extremely well preserved.
A must-see in Milan.

Milan’s Sistine Chapel
Oct 2021
Extremely impressive church. Do not be fooled by the unassuming facade. There is such beauty in the artwork inside. Frankly one of the best churches we have ever entered. I do not understand why more do not see church. The museum is always quite good.

A hidden gem in the centre of Milano. The church is absolutely amazing. It is wonderfully painted and it contains an imposing ancient organ.
A special mention to the guides, all volunteers.
Please make the time to visit this church, it's great.

Frescoes in this church are amazing, don't miss it! The story of the nunnery, the whole atmosphere is something totally great. Frescoes were recently cleaned and restored, the colours unbelievably vivid...

Please make the time to visit this Church. It is not very large, and the layout and history is just wonderful. Volunteers are there to explain which helps for people who don't speak Italian. They all speak English and other languages too.

This church, in the center of town, has been called "The Sistine chapel of Milano" because it is so intensely and wonderfully painted. It used to be the prayer place for a monastery, that now is a museum.

Welcome calm from the bustle of Via Magenta. The ceilings and organ in the sisters' chapel are outstanding. Much more to see next time

Gorgeous chapel/church tucked away behind an inconspicuous facade. Inside is a stunning interior to rival any other church in Milan. What it lacks in size it makes up for in artistic decadence.

We went here as part of a walking tour. It looks such a simple Church from the street that you are overwhelmed with the colour and richness within. The tour leader went to great pains to explain all. Wonderful place
