This was very easy to find from the subway as there's a station named after it. The building was well preserved with good information about the towers. This is a very old building that has tested the hands of time and has won. It's worth...More
I rode the Metro here and it is pretty much across the street from the stop. It is a different neighborhood and a very old church so it is varied from the Cathedral and other sites. The mosiacs are beautiful.
Okay, I do realise that this basilica was rebuilt in the 12th century or so. But for those of us who are fascinated by the blend from antiquity to the early Christian age, it is just tremendous to experience a plain, early medieval-style of decoration...More
There are so many great churches with great art throughout Italy, but I liked this because the building itself was a bit different and (to me at least) gave you a sense of the way religious buildings played a role in the world in the...More
This beautiful church has a long history. Consecrated in the late 300s and added to in the 12c it is not covered with gold but rather has a peaceful and serene feeling and entry to the basilica is free. It is closed during lunchtime so...More
This is not the Sforza Castle or the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana as some of the reviews here seem to suggest. It is one of a number of churches in Milan founded in the last days of the Roman Empire in the West and kept in some...More
Quite literally stumbled into this site while walking to the Last Supper. Lovely basilica, and fascinating etchings in the walls. Wish I had more time to really explore but it's worth a walk through, if not more. Try to ignore the cacophonous construction all around...More
Would you ever travel to Rome and not visiting the Colosseum? Would you ever miss the Statue of Liberty in NY, the Tour Effeil in Paris, Saint Petersbourg's Church of the Spilt Blood or Beijing's Forbideen City? So far teh answer about visiting Milan's Sant'Ambrogio....More
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.

Hi. We didnt pay anything for the entrance to the building but we didnt spend very long there as they closed for 'lunch' so what i would say is check the opening times. Its worth visiting though and hopefully you wont be asked to leave while they shut off all the lights and closed the doors behind us. Hope this helps you a little.
