Caravaggio, Botticelli, Da Vinci… These rooms dedicated to painting and sculpture and a luxurious library constitute an essential stop on your Milan tour.
With a light of it own.
Among the city's broad artistic and historical offering, this place shines with a light of its own. It was founded at the beginning of the seventeenth century. Federico Borromeo decided to establish his gallery next to the palace of the Ambrosiana Library to provide an educational aspect for the artists and intellectuals. Art students flock here to take down references from the great medieval authors. The building is surrounded by Via dell'Ambrosiana, a few steps from the Duomo. Inside, the visit may take some time. Caravaggio, Botticelli or Barocci, among others, rest here. A library adjoins these twenty-four exhibition rooms. If you're an admirer of Leonardo Da Vinci, this visit is a must. Among all the volumes and manuscripts by different authors, a considerable part of his Codex Atlanticus is kept here.
