  • You can walk all the way there from cathedral to the canal and this is right on the way . History and modern worl is blend together . Catches the light and sun beautifully 
  • I can understand that for the Milanese this ancient building has an affective meaning, but honestly to date can be noted especially degradation and neglect ... P.zza Duomo, Navigli and in between we should mix more so to embellish later known as attraction ... let go: too bad ...

  • You can get callejeando from Center, visit the Church and admire the Roman columns. For my taste "annoying" modern screen front but is a nightlife area. from there you can go to the navigli area and continue the night.

  • 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.
