I was not even aware of this when I found it while walking by. What a great surprise! The frescoes are worth spending the time to see. And the building itself, built on an ancient Roman site, is also interesting. Nearby are some Roman ruins...More

This is yet another ordinary looking church from the outside and set on a busy main road, but completely different once you enter inside. It has beautifully decorated walls full of stunning murals and a side gate leading to the Hall of Nuns which is...More

This church was unknown to us until our guide took us there. What a gem! Great art and a wonderful insight into convent life. We were almost mesmerised but the reclusive, contemplative life is not for us.

The Sistine Chapel of Milan, this little church is beautiful in its own right. The history and story behind it is fascinating. Truly a hidden and forgotten treasure.

I hadn't expected what I would find here. The nave, chapel, chiesa is completely fitted out in renaissance decoration. Nothing frilly, but virtually every surface frescoed. I would be hard pressed to point to any one fresco as a Wow-piece, but as a whole, it...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

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.
