What makes the Basilica di Sant'Eustorgio an important church in Milan is the fact that each new bishop of Milan has to begin his procession at this place going to the Milan cathedral Duomo. Another important fact is, it has been a favorite place for stop of Pilgrims in Europe because it originally housed the remains of the Three Magi.... More

Founded in the fourth century, the high point of the church is the presence of the relics of the Magi. The antiquity of the temple is certainly another worth mentioning aspect.

This is a lovely church in Milano. It is attached to a museum, which requires a ticket to get into, but do yourself a favor and go - you will see one of the most beautiful chapels around!

Makes you go back in time and feel what was like to be in Milano at the time all this buildings were made, it takes a long time but if you have many days to kill in Milano its a perfect walk and visit for some hours.

The museo admission is inexpensive, and worth it to see the Portinari Chapel. Beautifully decorated dome and a splendid marble tomb to St. Peter the Martyr. English-language brochure explains the collection.

Make sure you make this church part of your visit to Milan, both from a religious point of view as well as an historic point of view. Just make sure that you visit for the right reason and respect the religious side of your visit as well.

I went primarily to see the famous chapel which is definitely worth the 5 E visit charge. The church itself lacks any truly extraordinary works of art, but I admit to being jaded after Florence and Padua. The church is ancient and conveys an atmosphere of serenity. Refreshingly, unlike the Duomo, there is no crush of tour groups and crowds.... More

This church is very hard for me to review...its very personal. Everything that has ever changed my life started here. My wedding, my son's baptism, my father and mother in law's funerals... Don Pigi was the most charismatic and intelligent priest I have ever met. He truly cared about each and every person who came to this church. Unfortunately he... More

I went here because it was recommended on the map of Milano Antica that can be bought at the Museo Archeologico. The entrance fee (6 euro) is steeper than most of the other churches on the route, save for the Duomo. I guess it was worth it, but the main attraction, a carved tomb for some local medieval bigwig, left... More

Staying in Navigli

Neighborhood Profile
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.
