Viator Traveler's Reviews
, Feb 2017
Light on DaVinci, but the rest of the collection is a must see when in Milan. Highlight is the panels by Breugel.
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.
