a remarkable collection of, especially, paintings, clocks, glassware and other decorative items displayed in a series of rooms, some with amazing stained glass windows etc. If you have only a short time in Milan, make sure you visit - closed on Tuesdays but NB open Monday when much else is closed.

This is a great way to spend a few hours in Milan. The collector certainly had some pretty eclectic tastes. I especially enjoyed the collection of old time pieces and the asolutely stunning carved table. Most of the art is well matched to the smaller rooms. Highly enjoyable.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
