Take a tour of Renaissance Italy, with a ticket to the oldest public art gallery in the world: Pinacoteca Ambrosiana. Milan's answer to the Louvre is home to masterpieces by da Vinci, Botticelli, Raphael, Caravaggio, and many more, making it a must-see for art lovers and history buffs alike.

There are only 15 known paintings attributed to Leonardo da Vinci in the world, and the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana is where you'll find one of them. See the Italian master's famous brushstrokes in his Portrait of a Musician.

Da Vinci's Codex Atlanticus is the highlight of the museum. With 1119 original pages of drawings, and notes on engineering, hydraulics, optics, anatomy, architecture, geometry and astronomy, it's the diary of a genius and one of history's great treasures.

Other masterworks that will leave you awestruck include a preparatory cartoon of Raphael's masterpiece The School of Athens, Botticelli's Madonna of the Pavilion, The Adoration of the Magi by Titian, and Caravaggio's Baroque Basket of Fruit painting.

Easy to book and easy to use when you get to a venue. Would recommend using Tiqets. Costs abit more but takes the stress out of a visit if it’s a popular place.
