Temple-Church of San Sebastiano

You can always tell this one from dozens of milanese churches. It has round shape and it's quite beautiful.

Another church? Should we have a look inside? Well, yes, you should. The interior is beautiful and one of the most decorated that we visited but you wouldn't think so if you were passing. It's also circular in shape so very unusual. If you're not interested in churches at all this may change your mind a little and certainly worth... More

From the outside this is not an overly impressive church. It is quite small compared to other churches in Milan. It is not overly decorated inside but the domed ceiling has been exquisitely painted

San Sebastiano is a small church, but the interior is quite impressive. It feels peaceful and it is worth taking the time to wander around and admire the religious decorations. The domed ceiling is lovely.

Not very interesting on the outside but respectfully go in and it is peaceful and nicely decorated. Shut the door quietly on the way out.

The Church of San Sebastiano was started in 1576. It is a simple church and the main altar is also simple. On the altar one finds the images of 4 saints. The church also has a copy of Michaelangelo's Pieta.

It's a bit small but it was really nice inside. The roof especially was worth a visit. It's not far from the duomo cathedral so if you have 5 minutes to spare, go there.

Just few meters from Milan Duomo, a small church "civico tempio di san sebastian" is hiding at one of the corners of the main shopping street. It's a round building with very special architecture and great elements. Dont miss it !

I stumbled upon this church when searching for another museum. The plan is round like the Pantheon and the side chapels are prettily laid out. It is a very quiet space and a great church for some reflection.

Using the Off-the-Beaten-Track-Tour from tripadvisor, we stumbled into this round, easy-to-miss church that had some amazing artwork and windows. It doesn't take long to see, it was completely empty, and it was an uplifting respite in an otherwise crowded day of sightseeing. Don't miss it when on Via Torino.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
