This gem of an art museum located in a gorgeous palazzo seems to be off the tourist map, which it too bad. It is well worth a visit with its collection of Renaissance art, porcelain, jewelery, watches and clocks and armour.

Nothing massively famous, but Cranach of Luther, and a Leonardo follower's near-copy of the Virgin, Child and lamb. Lots of cabinets if that's your thing (it is mine).

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
