It was the historical gates dating back to the 19th century. We stood by standing next to one of them right in the middle of the main road, nothing much really. It's in between Corso Buenos Aires and Duomo. I will write more reviews about Milan on Fashion Travel Accessories. :)

Worth seeing and then walking in on the Porta Venezia Avenue which has some pretty superb architecture. There is a metro stop here as well.

Prominent City Gate building on the busy Corso Venezia. Not the most spectacular bujilding in Milan, but nevertheless has its place in history and architectural style. Watch for it as you zoom past on your scooter.....

Starting from Porta Venezia walk to piazza San Babila, enjoying corso Venezia and then you'll arrive close to the "Quadrilatero" for a wild shopping (fierce for your bank account).

Neighborhood Profile
Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.
