It’s also a good place to get a bite to eat, if you need a quick recharge as you walk the complex grounds.

The complex’s attractions go far beyond the bar. The first exhibition in the new space, “Serial Classic,” examines the way Roman artists copied their Greek forebears. It includes a series of stunning sculptures assembled in an equally stunning space.

The collection isn’t strictly classical either. It spans a range of styles and includes this curious object by Damien Hirst.

There’s plenty to see, well-suited for a long layover in Milan, perhaps on your way home from the Venice Biennale.
