|About these ratings|
The Bibliotheca and Pinacoteca Ambrosiana holds an interesting collection of works. The gallery portion contains mostly 15th- to17th-century art (from artists like Titian, Raphael and Caravaggio), while the library holds a number of Leonardo da Vinci's drawings and writings along with a vast collection of medieval manuscripts among others.
"Rich and superbly [displayed], an amazing historic collection that travels you from Leonardo to Breughel via [Titian] and many others. ... Both, fascinating and inspiring," says one TripAdvisor user.
You can visit the gallery Tuesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Keep in mind that the library is for the express use of scholars, but at different times of the year it will display its collection to the general public. To reach it, hop off at the Cordusio or Duomo metro stops. Admission is €8 EUR (or about $11.50 USD) for adults. For more information, visit the website.
