This arc or porta is not so great, but what is great is the fact that it is so close to a very relaxing area of town. It is near a river side with small shops, relaxing people, bars, ... We also loved to long...More

Very busy, full of traffic around, trams, cyclistes, mopeds and a lot of car. It is hard to move around to get to the gate.

A massive old city gate surrounded by a lot of traffic, but you can get to the port safely and look around and take photos. It is not very impressive, especially cause there were some spray paint graffiti on it and some garbage under the...More

In this area you can see the Porta Ticinese which is the entry point into Milan. There is an area around it but there are trams, cars, and cyclists who buzz around. We visited this area & then moved onto the canal area.

We took the number 3 tramway from the Duomo to get to the Navigli and it dropped us off right in front of the Porta Ticinese. Quite an imposing structure and a fitting way to begin the exploration of the Navigli! From the tram stop...More

A nice city gate - no more and no less. Nothing very special but the entry to the famous Navigli District.

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
