Milan itinerary possibility questions

Jump to last reply

I've suddenly gotten a relatively last-minute chance (ca. one month out) with a small group of folks (not a tour or anything like that) to visit Milan and some surrounding areas in Northern Italy. Will be based in Milan, which is non-negotiable. Am thinking I've got "one to one-and-a-half full days" to sight-see in Milan and am trying to set up an itinerary, given the time available. Flight and lodging is set.

Re a Last Supper ticket, it's too late to get them from the websites I've checked -- just didn't have enough lead time here. Will try to see what I can do via the hotel concierge, as I've seen suggestions to do on this forum. Here's hoping, as if it comes through, I'll definitely make time for it. If he/she can arrange for a ticket, what's an appropriate amount to tip the person?

Here's what I'm considering seeing, given my research and interests:

Duomo.
La Scala Museum.
Galleria Vittorio Emmanuel II.
Pinacoteca di Brera.
Pinacoteca Ambrosiana.
Museo Poldi-Pezzoli.

There are a couple churches near the area that may make for a good short stop-in to include along the way, such as the Chiesa Santa Maria Presso di San Satiro or Chiesa di Sant'Ambrogio. The Museo Nazionale della Scienza e delle Tecnica Leonardo da Vinci doesn't interest me given the short amount of time available.

A couple questions:

--given my interests in art and historic matters, are there any other major attractions I'm missing?

--of the three art museums, I'm guessing the "must see" factor for these in descending order would be: Brera, Ambrosiana, Poldi-Pezzoli. Any dissenting thoughts on this ordering?

--descriptions of the Poldi-Pezzoli suggest it's a small house-style art museum in the manner of the Frick in NYC or Gardner in Boston. Is this indeed about the size and scope of the Poldi-Pezzoli?

--it's hard to tell how large the Brera and Ambrosiana museums are. Are they large (like The Louvre, can't possibly see in a day), small (the Peggy Guggenheim in Venice, where about an hour or so is good), or somewhere in between (like the Pitti Palace museum in Florence or Tate in London, where ca. 3 hours covers a good bit of it)?

--it looks like the La Scala Museum is not large. True?

I'm very mindful of hours and days and will carefully take this into account when assembling the final itinerary.

Many thanks for your help.
