  • It was the only peaceful place in the hectic Milan. The school of Athens is a grand painting on a grand scale. And the sketches of Leonardo da Vinci in the library were impressed, too. I took the stroller, and they treated us kindly, so I enjoyed the viewing(On the second floor, strollers could not go, so I only visited the viewing area) It was 11.5 euros including tax and I think it's well worth the visit.
  • Such an amazing quiet gallery. It definitely does feel like it’s in Milan. It’s worth your time trust me. I spent about 2-3 hours wandering around. Unlike Pinacoteca du Brera, you can just walk in and buy your ticket, so don’t bother booking in advance.
