This is not a big place but an interesting place to visit. If you are there on free Tuesdays or get the Milan tourist museum card.

Its good for a 10mins walk, 5eur/pers. I would say the exibitions are interesting, the problem is that i saw few empty spots inside and out also. Needs some remodeling.

Hi, This aquarium is located in the Sempione Park. The entry to this aquarium is covered in the Tourist Museum card. So we did not have to pay anything for entry. It is well worth a visit if you are visiting the Sempione Park.

Quite good and interesting aquarium, located in the Parco Sempione. We stumbled in when it was free entry, but the ticket is quite cheap anyway. It's not very big, but is very well organized. Worth seeing.

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
quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch
expedition into a royal experience. Head to the
rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the
