Light on DaVinci, but the rest of the collection is a must see when in Milan. Highlight is the panels by Breugel.

The building and opere d'art are really beautifull but da Vinci's Codex is just for experts.

The Codex Atlanticus is marvelous but its worth only to see the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana. The Sacristia Del Bramante is expensive and very quick, not worth it!

' A THRILL We were fascinated by da VINCI'S mind and abundant works . Plus the Bramante and the
Pinacoteca were perfect settings and wonderous themselves.

Had hoped for more. Viator made it seem like it included the Last Supper-which it didn't. Still worthwhile especially if you're looking to beat the heat or the rain. Disappointing in that it is all in Italian-not a word of English, so buy the audio accompanier. Allow 2-3 hrs.
