"The Pinacoteca di Brera ("Brera Art Gallery") is the main public gallery for paintings in Milan, Italy. It contains a collection of Italian paintings from the thirteenth to the twentieth century, an outgrowth of the cultural program of the Brera Academy, which shares the site in the Palazzo Brera.The Palazzo Brera was initially a convent, passed to the Jesuits (1572), then underwent a radical rebuilding by Francesco Maria Richini (1627–28) into the palace it is today. When the Jesuits were disbanded in 1773, the palazzo remained the seat of the astronomical Observatory and the Braidense National Library founded by the Jesuits. In 1774 were added the herbarium of the new botanical garden.The access to the botanical gardens is free and they are really worth it.The Romantic era witnessed the triumph of academic history painting, guided at the Academy by Francesco Hayez.Overall, there are many famous paintings to see and I would advise to stop for a tour.Be prepared for a lot of religious themed paintings though."

Reasons to Recommend: The Pinacoteca di Brera was founded in 1776, and boasts important works by Italian and foreign masters from 1400 to 1900. Of special note are the paintings by Vincenzo Foppa, Lorenzo Lotto, Paolo Veronese, Tintoretto, Giovanni Bellini, Andrea Mantegna, Tiziano, Correggio, Bramante, Gentile da Fabriano, Piero della Francesca, Caravaggio, Rubens, Hayez. Famous works like Sposalizio della Vergine by Raffaello, the Cristo morto by Andrea Mantegna, Madonna and Saints by Piero della Francesca and the Madonna in trono e Santi by Ercole Dè Roberti.

"One of the legends of the students in Milan is that they cannot graduate from the Duomo Cathedral without visiting it before they graduate, so students often don't hear of anyone who has gone in. The Cathedral Museum introduced today (museo del duomo) is also next to the Cathedral, located in the Palace of Milan (palazzo Reale). Although we are not afraid to enter the cathedral, it is still no problem to go to the museum, which introduces the history of the cathedral since the 14th century. Among the treasures on display are many medieval statues, stained glass windows, paintings, tapestries, and a 16th- and 17th-century wooden cathedral model."

"[Museum of Leonardo da Vinci] This museum commemorating da Vinci's scientific and technological achievements is located near the city hall of Milan, and the museum is converted from a 16th century monastery with a rather obscure entrance. The interior retains the structure and style of the building itself, and the museum is divided into several different exhibition halls based on the contents of the exhibits. In addition to the must-see display of da vinci mechanical design manuscripts and reprint models, it also shows his achievements in astronomy, agriculture, electronics and other fields. On the side of the pavilion, the collection of materials engineering, communication technology, astronomical instruments and musical instrument crafts is displayed, and the sketches and reproduction models of da Vinci manual machinery are displayed. It is worth seeing the tickets: 4.5 Euro time: 9:30-17:30 Monday closed address: Via San Vittore, 21, 20123 Milano MI, Italian subway: Line 2 to S. Ambrogio Station Bus: 50, 58 to San Vittore Station; 94 to Carducc Station"

"When you come to Sforzal Castle, you can see the treasure of the town house-the legacy of Michelangelo-the Holy Death of Rondanini in the first exhibition hall after purchasing the ticket. The work is not finished yet, the master has gone first. The use of such a large exhibition hall to display this collection of works proves how high its artistic value and status are. Looking around it in 360 degrees for more than ten minutes, I can still feel a kind of power and emotion endowed by this "incomplete" work. The Virgin lost the sad expression of Jesus and softened the hard stone, and she would really be moved by its influence. It is recommended to watch a documentary in the castle museum to learn about the story of this sculpture's relocation. It was the "moving" history of "Holy Sage" that took 3 years of filming and editing."

The most amazing thing is that there are the Roman ruins and the ruins of two complete towers. You can go inside to see the remains of the murals on the walls, but you need to buy a five-euro ticket"

"This one is in a shady old industrial area, very clean. There are some very special exhibitions held there, and some look like old suitcases left in the train station. People are watching them carefully. The other exhibitions look like the cars we used in the soapbox racing games we made ourselves at school-just more expensive. By the way, there is also a cafe restaurant there."
