Pinacoteca Ambrosiana, the Ambrosian art gallery, is one of the largest art museums in Milan. In 1618 cardinal Federico Borromei donated ancient manuscripts, books and 250 paintings to the gallery, among which were not only copies, but also priceless originals. Today, Ambrosiana boasts an extensive collection of art of the 15-19th centuries, housed on two floors in 24 rooms.
Here you can see the unique works by Botticelli, Titian, Leonardo da Vinci and his best pupil Bernardino Luini, sketches by Rafael for the Vatican fresco "The School of Athens". Ambrosiana houses a truly priceless copy of Da Vinci's "Last Supper", painted by Vespino; "Basket of Fruit" by Caravaggio which is recognized as the first still life in the history of paining; "Bouquet" painted by Jan Brueghel the Elder, the son of Pieter Brueghel.
Pinacoteca Ambrosiana is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
