Arco della Pace, Milan

4.3
#9 of 103 in Historic Sites in Milan
Monument Architectural Building
Overlooking the city center stands Arco della Pace, an early 19th-century triumphal arch. The Neoclassical marble structure features statues both on top and carved into the sides depicting major historic events, important battles, classical mythology, and allegories. The historical square is quiet, and the arch perfectly frames the castle in the distance. Walk through the large park, pack a picnic, and relax in the presence of this city landmark. See Arco della Pace and all Milan has to offer by arranging your trip with our Milan vacation generator.

  • Very Nice memorial in close vicinity of Sempione park in Milan. It looks majestic in the evening when the sun rays fall on it from different angle. Nice place to relax.
  • Beautiful Arc and piazza, you can sit back and relax and watch kids play and people performing music and dance. It's beautiful in evening
  • I met two beautiful girls from New Zealand that took this photo for me. It's a good place to meet new people and relax.
  • A wonderful piazza, to sit and admire this archway. True to it it renders peace. Spare some time here.
  • Cool place to chill or hangout with friends. At night they have nice places to have a typical italian aperetivo with very delicious food.
