On a cold Sunday afternoon, we stopped by chance. And we were lucky. A guided tour was available for a small group of visitors in Italian, we went for it. It was worth it. The property is beautiful, you can smell a piece of Milanese history, and Alessandro Manzoni lived his time quite fully. He was making history with other... More

International visitors to Milan may not know who Manzoni was but this is a great place to visit. Manzoni was the Shakespeare of Italy and lived in the 19th century. The house is large and beautiful. It is very close to La Scala.

Well, the renovations of this lovely building are finally finished, but unfortunately, due to Christmas and New Year's, the place was closed shut with no notices of the opening hours. Rather disappointing, but at least peeking inside revealed the exhibits (or at least - some of them) are back.

recently re-opened to the public in a quiet corner of downtown, this is the city home of one of the foremost authors in 19th century italian literature; the facade (see photo) opens onto a small square, mercifully off-limits to most vehicular traffic and parking. Unfortunately the property was sold and bought several times since the death of A. Manzoni, so... More

The house itself is an important site. What I found most fascinating about it is that it totally reflects the character of Alessandro Manzoni. Rooms (including his bedroom) are plain, clean, rigorous almost. Except for the bedroom the other rooms are decorated with paintings and portraits of the artist and of the key chapters of its "Promessi Sposi". When leaving... More

Unfortunately, the palace was not open to the public due to some minor renovations. Having peeked inside, it seems most of the exhibits from the museum were either covered or stored away somewhere else. Having said that, the façade of the building looks nice and will look even better when the building's facelift is completed.

The Casa is right near the end of the the Galleria Vittorio. If you are in luck you can tour through the house which housed Italy's most famous author. Just in front of the very pretty façade is a great statue of the author.

Lovely building but you need to go on a waking tour to find out about it( if you can't go in) so that you can fully appreciate the beauty of the building. It's looks amazing and the detail is breathtaking.

Anyone (that visit Milan or pass for a short trip) must leave this city without visit the home of one of the major Milan habitant in the word (however the origin of his parents wasn't in Milan). The home of Manzoni is maintained and cared until the begin of XX century from a sort of Manzoni foundation. Of course it's... More

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.
