  • It would be a very nice place to walk around or go for a drink if it wasn't chock full of drug dealers and shady day and night, it would take more control on the part of law enforcement.

  • This church is worth a visit! Exterior and Interior! Octagonal shape is one of the oldest churches in Milan. Mosaics!

  • Not that there's much to see, but are the remains of an ancient construction so interesting and quiet area

  • 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.
