Make your way to the heart of Milan to explore a pair of historic landmarks—the Piazza San Sepolcro is easy walking distance from Piazza del Duomo in a neighborhood that’s overflowing with churches, restaurants and shops. Enjoy the flexibility to explore the church and crypt on your own, with plenty of time to see the things that interest you most.
Go beyond the 19th-century neo-Romanesque façade of San Sepolcro Church to discover traces of the original 11th-century construction, and learn why Leonardo da Vinci chose to place the church at the center of his beautifully-drawn map of Milan.
Descend below street level into the crypt, which has been closed to the public for 50 years. Walk a Verona stone floor that was salvaged from the 4th-century Roman Forum, see a replica of Christ’s tomb, and follow the stories of biblical saints in still-vivid frescoes. The crypt and church are open every day from noon until 8 pm; entrance is located at Piazza San Sepolcro on the back side of Ambrosiana Gallery.
