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.

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
