This is an old church that dates back to the fourth century. The main part of the church was built much later and is fairly plain. However, the real interest is the Chapel of Saint Aquilino to the side which contain mosaics dating from the...More

One of the most beautiful and oldest churches in Milan, built between IV-V centuries and later was rebuilt several times during medieval period. Just great!

This basilic has a large cupola and hosts a beautiful chapel (San Aquilino) where one can see nice mosaics from the 4th century.There is a 2€ entrance fee. Also it is possible to visit underneath the chapel the old foundations dating from the Roman time.

Perhaps often overlooked in a city with so much, this church should be visited if possible. Both it and the old section of city wall and gate stand out as unchanged in a so modern lively city (by Italian standards).

Huge, nicely decorated church is one of the oldest churches in Milan, located in a fine area where the roman colonnade is. There is a monument to Constantine the Great front of it.

This is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, church in Milan. The basilica itself is a wonderful building but not overly ornate. The real gem is a chapel to the side called the Chapel of Saint Aquilino which dates to the 4th century....More

Amongst Milan other ecclesiastical attractions S.Lorenzo could be overlooked. It's piazza is fronted by Roman columns whilst it's interior, although largely unadorned does have a complete version of The Last Supper I. e. Without a doorway being put through Christ's feet as at S.Marie dell...More

The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient
days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar
to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the
Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are
two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande.
The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk
with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes
in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns
