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
This is one of the oldest churches in Milan. The best thing in the church is the really old fabulous Saint Aquilino's chapel which has some 4 th century mosaics inside. What remains is just amazing and there was some restoration of one of the...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.
We came up & saw the Basilica San Maggiore. It is just outside the old walls around Milan. There is a courtyard at the front and I was trying to get an image without hundreds of kids who were running around. The venue is founded...More
I approached the basilica from the rear and was very impressed with the view and the conglomeration of different building styles.

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
supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.

8am till 6.30 pm Mon to Sat and Sun 9am to 7pm. The basilica is free self guided but the Chapel of saint Aquilino is 2 euro. This is worth the visit to see the 4th century Byzantine mosaics. from what I remember there is restoration work going on in side the chapel. I hope you enjoy your visit
