Adjoining the church of San Maurizio is the 9th century Monastero Maggiore, once the most important Benedictine convent in the city and now the backdrop for the archeological museum. Accessed via a cloister where fragments of the city's Roman walls can be seen, and through the 3rd-century frescoed Ansperto Tower , it provides great insight into old Mediolanum with well-curated collections of Etruscan, Greek, Roman, Gothic and Lombard artefacts.
