Where to stay in Milan

For a quintessential Milanese experience, stay in the bustling heart of the old town. This area offers easy foot access to most of Milan's main sites, as well as some of the city's finest restaurants, shops, and theaters. The central area is also quite crowded, and comfortable rooms in good hotels can be very expensive. Visitors traveling on a budget can choose from a range of top-notch B&Bs and family-operated hostels, which offer private parking and access to private outdoor space, minutes from Milan's main attractions.

  • The museum is small but it has a lot of artefacts about four stages of civilizations, residing in Italy - Greek, Etruscan, Middle ages, Antiquity. It is located in an old monastery. It is worth for people interested in archeology and history
  • Very interesting and calm. A bit of history about the city ruins placed​ in the different parts of the city.
  • Small place, nice but not a big amount of exponate. For someone interested in history is a must.
  • Very small but informative. Can be full of kids and information is normally in Italian.
  • The little museum is a nice change from the bustling city and has some nicely preserved samples from times long gone. For 5€ just go there and enjoy one or two hours of archeology, depending on your level of interest. You can also sit and relax in the yard while looking at the ruins there.
