  • One of the alternative and student areas. Cheap beer and many academics. This is the place to go if Navigli is too "stopped" for you.

  • A place to visit in Milan! Dating from the 4th century, with a beautiful church of San Lorenzo just next to it, colonne are a perfect place to sit and relax and dream about old times! In the evening, it is a popular gathering place for young people. Sometimes it knows to be very crowdy so pay attention to your personal belongings
  • Walking around Milan I kept wondering where am the Roman ruins were, that is until I came across the colonnes! They are positioned in a way that contrasts with the 18th century basilica and modern street design. Other Roman ruins can be found at Parco dell'Anfiteatro romano e Antiquarium.
  • 16 corinthian columns. A must see in milan!
  • Cool area full of bars and restaurants, and a meeting point for local young people and college students. If you walk down the main road from here, you can reach the Duomo in little more than 5 minutes.
  • Good place for Saturday nights, full of pubs around! It's just in the middle, 5 minutes walking from the Duomo and Navigli!
