How lucky to walk into this church and see a statue of Saint Rita. Just around the corner from our hotel...I was so surprised to find this gem!

Both San Celso and S. Maria degli Angeli are to be seen. THe cluster of artworks they collect is simply unique. The entrance patio of San Celso is a masterpiece on its own. 15 minutes walk from the Duomo -you have no excuses.

In the busy modern Milan there are hidden several architecture gems. One is this church, built in the XV and XVI century in Renaissance style.

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.
