Science Museum

Typical visit time: 1-1.5 hours

The Science Museum of Milan was such a pleasant surprise for me. After visiting the Science Museum in London, I thought nothing could ever impress me. I couldn’t be more wrong! The museum has a few fascinating rooms – some dedicated to climate change and even a whole hall dedicated to Leonardo Da Vinci and some of his amazing inventions. The gardens of the museum are quite gorgeous as well, so take a stroll outside as well. Entrance fee – €10.

Santa Maria delle Grazie – Last Supper Viewing

Typical visit time: 30 minutes

Pro tip: book your tickets to the Last Supper at least a few weeks before your visit to Milan! In this beautiful little square you’ll see the Santa Maria delle Grazie church, and, facing it, to your left you’ll see the Last Supper viewing. Unfortunately, we apparently thought it would be easy to see one of most amazing paintings in the world. Oh well. When we entered, they said they’re fully booked for the next 2 weeks 🙁 . Apparently they only let 25 people every 15 minutes, in order to preserve the temperature/humidity in the room where it is held. Share your experience in the comments if you’ve seen it! Entrance fee – €36.

Parco Sempione

Typical visit time: 1 hour

The beautiful park is located right behind Castello Sforzesco. You can take a relaxing walk and enjoy the sun and the beauty of nature <3

Castello Sforzesco

Typical visit time: 1.5 hours

These walls are actually 7 meters thick! 😱 Within them, you will find several amazing museums – an art gallery, museum of ancient art, museum of musical instruments, antique furniture and wooden sculpture museums and a few more! Make sure you have a few hours to spare when you visit, you will surely enjoy half a day in Castello Sforzesco and its gardens. Entrance fee – €5.
