  • A historic meeting, the columns of San Lorenzo is one of the rare finds survivors of Milan. Become a hangout for people of all ages, lately the area has been neglected and no longer safe as a time

  • Somewhat away from the city, this resort is worth the walk, is really striking to see such architectural complex in the middle of the city, it overlooks the homonymous basilica. Worth the penalty.

  • Have to like chaos, the sound of drums and guitars, the presence of young boys and be content to sit on the floor.

  • It would be an incredible historical site. Unfortunately it is located in a block where nightlife rules, so it is crowded with drunk youngsters from 6pm to 6am, and then from 6am to 12am it is so dirty with bottles and dried vomit that it is hard to enjoy.
  • Pretty place. Beware of the locals that hang out on the park benches.
  • This place is good for young guys, who wanna have beer and maybe some drug. It's not comfortable for sitting on stone's stairs.
  • Small beautiful place with Greek columns and the team is passing in between. Perfect for sit in. Meeting place for young people in the evening.
  • Very beauty place, which converts into party station while night. Good place if you want to meet new people or just drink something (brought with you) with friends.
