This line of 16 marble Corinthian columns, the only remains of Roman Temple or other structure, is one of a few Roman ruins still in situ in Milano. It can be seen in front of the Basilica of St. Lorenzo.

This is probably the only Roman era monument located within urban Milan; located at the far end of Via Torino, a popular shopping destination, which connects it to the Duomo. There are 16 Corinthian columns in a row, which are all that remains of a...More

An old set of columns in front of the church with the same name. Difficult to photograph though the church is worth a visit and there's some street art on the wall next to it

It is a just a walk around space but great historical story. The crowd is young and vivacious, esp during evenings.

where it remained until 402. So it should be called Imperium Mediolanum, not the Roman, uring that time. The church of San Lorenzo cupola collapsed in the Renaissaince, so it's been rebuilt, maybe twice, but it dtes back to 500 at least.

Step in to the past with a visit to these 5th century columns. Worth a visit because of the history. Also near the remnants of the extensive canal system that Milan used to have.

It was nice to move around here and take some pictures while walking through downtown Milano. The Colonne are beautiful and quite imposing.

I am not sure when this structure was erected but it was probably in the roman times. It is a nice place to see and it is free.

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
