  • I went there in the evening, for a pizza with friends: lively area, where, in addition to nightlife, there is also this corner of the ancient vestiges of Milan, little known to most people. The line of columns, elegant, adds a touch of prestige to the area and deserves sen's visit.

  • The columns of San Lorenzo along viale di Porta Ticinese, Milan Roman are a thing of the past, the ancient Mediolanum. Placed in front of the Church, are a corner not only historical, but also impressive. I saw them in the morning and they were quiet, I couldn't see the deterioration that, by comments made on Tripadvisor, makes them avoidable in the evening

  • While you are walking in the centre of Milan you arrive at this empty space that was filled by a big church. The columns are the only memory of that church. The atmosphere can be magic. The area is also full of typical restaurants where you can take your lunch or dinner and take a moment to review this beautiful city.
  • I really enjoyed this site, except for the gigantic TV across from it and the pushy peddlers ( hence the 4 stars) Hard to get good pictures. Visited at night. Lots of people and Bars. Great place to stand/sit and have a drink. However, like every other site of interest, be wary of people trying to sell you things...they are very pushy and get angry when you say no. Down the street is an awesome Gelato and Crepe place with a long line. Sadly I was too full to try.
  • An underrated area of milan. If you are looking to buy some clothes worthy of the "fashion capital" of Italy, you must lose yourself among the streets that surround the colonne.
  • If you are in milan i would suggest you to pass by this place at night, cool atmosphere and cosy to hangout with friends.
  • Very nice columns, very historical and artistic. It's a shame that I saw stupid unhistorical things at the background of this great work of art.
