Milan’s museums house collections of international importance. The best are located in the Pinacoteca di Brera, which can be compared with the greats such as the Louvre in Paris and Madrid's El Prado. The museum is home to Italy’s finest classical art collection, including "The Kiss" by Francesco Hayez. Other must-see museums and galleries include the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana, the Poldi Pezzoli Museum, and the Societa' per le Belle Arti ed Esposizione Permanente for more contemporary art and sculpture.
The Leonardo da Vinci Museum of Science and Technology is a fascinating and interactive museum that looks a little more closely at some of the great man’s scientific inventions and ideas. For opera lovers, the obvious destination has to be La Scala Theatre, one of the world’s most important venues for classical opera. A strangely beautiful attraction is the Art Nouveau cemetery of Cimitero Monumentale, which is filled with lavish sculptures and is effectively the largest open-air Art Nouveau museum in the world.
The Cinque Vie historical district is Milan’s ancient heart, and is where the Roman city grew up. It’s also home to some of the city’s most exclusive boutique shopping, and plenty of espresso bars to keep you refreshed and fuelled up for a busy day’s sightseeing.
