Located upstairs from the centuries-old Accademia di Belle Arti (still one of Italy’s most prestigious art schools), this gallery houses Milan’s impressive collection of Old Masters, much of it ‘lifted’ from Venice by Napoleon. Rembrandt, Goya and Van Dyck all have a place in the collection, but look for the Italians: Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese, and the Bellini brothers. Much of the work has tremendous emotional clout, most notably Mantegna's brutal Lamentation over the Dead Christ .

Don't miss the glass-walled restoration laboratory, where you can see conservators at work. Audio guides are available in Italian, French, English, Spanish and German (€5).
