The 8th-century Monastero Maggiore, which was once the most significant Benedictine convent in Milan, now houses the city’s archaeological museum. Visitors can access the museum via a cloister, where fragments of Milan’s Roman walls are on display. On the ground floor, rooms showcase important artifacts from Roman Mediolanum, while the upper floors offer well-curated collections that detail the city’s history through Etruscan, Greek, Gothic, and Lombard artifacts. In the garden, the 3rd-century frescoed Ansperto Tower serves as a historical marker delineating the limits of Mediolanum’s city walls.
