Where to stay in Milan

This area offers easy foot access to most of Milan's main sites, as well as some of the city's finest restaurants, shops, and theaters. The central area is also quite crowded, and comfortable rooms in good hotels can be very expensive.

  • The façade is full of decorations, alone, is worth a stop: was built starting in 1611 by Cerano with contributions from numerous sculptors active in Fabbrica del Duomo; at its Center a relief-very realistic-which tells Paul's conversion and sides objects that recall the life of Saint Paul (who was soldier). The inside jaw-dropping, even those who, like me, has already seen more than once: a single nave with the time totally frescoed, expertly, by Fields of Cremona; three small chapels on each side, closed by pound signs (XVIII century) in wrought iron and marble, with frescoed walls and large wheel (various authors) above the altars; a presbytery with painted stories of St Paul (by Antonio and Vincenzo Campi), with a central altar in scagliola and a Tabernacle decorated, enclosed by a wall that divides the courtroom of the faithful from that of nuns, dominated by modern glass and iron structure that occupies the nuns and constitutes the place of work of architects of studio CLS (who had to rent this converted Church). Unfortunately the frescoes in the Hall of the faithful, however still visible and appreciated for the quality of both the setting (the figures of the Apostles and the Virgin are inserted in a loggia that looks real; by a balustrade depart the columns supporting a newsstand opened in the center of which is Christ) is run, are very spoiled and the frescoes in the Hall of the nuns have virtually disappeared; but some altarpieces are beautiful previews of Caravaggio (the martyrdom of St Lawrence, eg.), the gates of the side chapels are small masterpieces, the main altar and the Tabernacle are jewels, paintings of St Paul's stories are interesting. In short, this church, built from 1549 together with the monastery of St Paul's, demolished in Angelic Mothers 1804, and now Deconsecrated is a jewel of great beauty, which is worth to be visited on the few occasions where you can get it (some associations, such as hidden city Milan, guided tours; the alternative is the Salone del Mobile in April), while waiting to be brought back and continuously to the enjoyment of all, perhaps, restored to its original splendor!

  • We were advised to take a look at this beautiful baroque church Deconsecrated and fresco-tacky-now the site of an important firm of architects. Huge entrance glass doors that allow you to admire the frescoes and the greatness of the Church itself to a single nave divided by a wall separating the audience cloistered nuns.

  • Chiesa di San Paolo Converso is a beautiful baroque church, unfortunately at the moment she is not acting, that can not pechalit', so inside get failed. This can be done only during fair because now it is not a church, and a kind of showroom.
