Neighborhood: Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.

My wife and I were walking from the Brera neighborhood to the Naviglio Grande when we went by the Roman ruins of Il Palazzo Imperiale. I was surprised to learn that Milan was at one time the capital of the Roman Empire. It is worth a quick look.

Milan was once the capital of the Roman empire. It too has some remnants of its history.

I would not had been here if I did not go on a walking tour.

You see the preserved ruins of the imperial palace. There are some information boards and it is a good photo opportunity.

This very interesting, though apparently not very well known site by tourists, is worth visiting. It is a reminder of the historical importance of the city of Milan since the times of the emperors. There is even a plan on the site explaining how the imperial palace must have been built.

The palace is incredible. It is very ornate. You can take a guided tour or not. Be sure to include the dungeons.

Nothing much left to see but a small very area of “ruins”. In its defense it’s not advertised as a “must see” or a “significant “ site so just walking by its worth a 5 minute stop.

I’m always a little disappointed at historic sites like this. I’m told there existed things like: bathhouses, residences, circus, etc., but I can never make out the way it looked. It just ends up looking like a pile of rocks to me. I commend the people who have not done anything with the remains; maybe there’s a way to restore the whole thing. Attached are photos, in case someone can put all the pieces of rocks together and develop some kind of picture of the original.

This was the Milan capital of the Roman Empire. Dating back to the 3rd century, there are portions of the ruins that are also underneath current structures. I just happened to pass by some of the ruins and they caught my eye.
