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.

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
