Best of Milan Walking Tour with Skip-the-Line to Duomo & ‘Last Supper’

1,277 reviews
More than 1,000 people visit Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper every day. Not surprisingly, visitors spend a lot of time waiting in for tickets and admission. On this walking tour of Milan, you’ll get skip-the-line admission to see the painting so you’ll have plenty of time to see rest of the city’s sights, including the Duomo and Sforza Castle. A small group means plenty of time for questions.

Usually this beatiful and storical area was full of young people who met here day and night before the cursed coronavirus.

Located in front of Basilica of San Lorenzo, is a group of ancient Roman ruins. Consists mainly of 16 tall Corinthian columns in a row facing an open square. In the 4th century , the columns were moved here, after removal from a likely 2nd century pagan temple or public bath house structure.

Colonne di San Lorenzo is situated in front of the Basilica San Lorenzo Maggiore and consists of 16 Corinthian columns, from the 2nd century, brought here from another site - as it is believed it was either a pagan temple or a public bath. Not a "must-see" but you can't avoid taking a look if you are strolling in the area.

I came across this by chance while walking back to the centre from the Grand Canal. There are precious little Roman ruins in Milan, so to come across these 16 columns, which were once part of a temple was a pleasant surprise. Apart from the columns there are no further ruins to see at the sight, but there is a statue of Constantine in the square alongside and an interesting church, Basilica San Lorenzo Maggiore, behind that.

The 16 columns standing in a row located in front of the Basilica of San Lorenzo were moved here in the 4th century and now fronts an open square, have a look then move on.
