Palazzo Reale is one of Milan’s most famous landmarks, the link between the city’s illustrious past and its innovative present.

Walking up the magnificent Neoclassical staircase will give visitors an idea of the palace’s splendour at the time of the Austro-Hungarian empire.

Located to the right of the Duomo, behind a small piazza and adjacent to the Arengario, Palazzo Reale is one of Milan’s most iconic sights.

The building’s current facade is the result of an 18th-century renovation project, carried out by architect Giuseppe Piermarini, who was instructed to modernize the residence, and other, somewhat questionable, renovations carried out at the start of the 20th century, when parts of the building were destroyed to redesign the space surrounding the Duomo.

The building was heavily damaged during the 1943 bombings by Allied forces, but a series of popular art exhibits has given it a new lease of life, turning it into a symbol of Milan’s renaissance as cultural capital of Europe.
