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

Most tourists will focus on the Duomo (Cathedral) when visiting Milan but if you feel more adventurous visit some of the other churches in this most Italian of cities. The Basilica of Sant'Eustorgio is well worth visiting and can be approached by the Metro or by cab. The church is home to one of the finest pieces of 14c sculptures... More

We discovered this jewel walking towards the Navigli District after shopping nearby. It is believed that Bishop of Milan, Eustorgio I, during the fourth century (344-350 AD) had the church built on a cemetery. Over the centuries many additions were made. Towards the turn of this century a major renovation took place and today it is an outstanding place of... More

Stop to visit it, even if you have to pay (not really much). There are inside it so many things that you must stay there at least one hour, suc as the Portinari Chapel. There is the Ark of theThree Wise man, too (but their relics were taken to Colonia, in Germany, during the Middle Ages.)

Staying in Navigli

Neighborhood Profile
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 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.
