If you have a road in this area of Milano, then take 5 minutes to see this gate. If you go on Corso Venezia you will arrive in San Babila and from there to Piazza del Duomo.

Just out from the main "Porta Venezia" subway station, you are already in one of the Milan's oldest gateway. A meeting point between the two roads or Corso Venezia and Corso Buenosaires. A beautiful place, hectic and busy, this area is particularly lively and full of shops and bars. Really very nice in the evening, the lights makes this place... More

We came across these completely by accident when walking along Corso Buenos Aires to get to the Natural History museum in the park. Just couldn't believe how such impressive old buildings just sit in the middle of a very busy traffic intersection. Was so impresses that we stood and waited for several minutes to be able to get a traffic... More

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).
