The Palazzos of Milan
An ideal itinerary for admiring the extraordinary facades of noble palazzos built by important families: starting at Palazzo dei Giureconsulti in Piazza Mercanti, it continues to Palazzo Clerici, which holds a fresco by Tiepolo, and Palazzo Marino, home to City Hall in Piazza della Scala, the only palazzo with four facades in four different architectural contexts.
Not far from this palazzo you'll be able to admire Casa degli Omenoni with its impressive sculptures and the Neoclassical Palazzo Belgioioso in the eponymous square. In Via Santo Spirito is Palazzo Bagatti Valsecchi, a nineteenth-century building inspired by the aristocratic style of the early Renaissance that is home to the house-museum by the same name.
You'll find an overview of different architectural styles in the seventeenth-century Palazzo del Senato in Via Senato, the Neoclassical Palazzo Serbelloni in Corso Venezia, and Milan's first Art Nouveau building, Palazzo Castiglioni. Palazzo Isimbardi, the institutional offices of the Province of Milan in Via Vivaio, concludes the itinerary.
