The church and columns are a must see while in Milan. The interior is quite simple but the rebuilt dome and frescos are intriguing.

On the face of it this church is mostly bare plaster inside. It is small and the murals and statues aren’t great. There was a choir practising which was nice. However, the best bit is behind a barred gate with a cost of €2. Pay...More

Very nice church. It was originally built in the Roman era and had restorations and rebuildings ever since. It has gained new architecture over the years such as the facade or dome. Inside is quite cavernous over the main aisle towards the altar. Much quieter...More

The basilica was built in the 4th century, bur the details about its foundation and authors are not certain. Anyway, it was rebuilt several times over the following centuries. It is a very nice architectural work and an important historic monument.

Navigli
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
