  • It's worth going to the columns and visit the Basilica, free entry. Night is a meeting point for the Milanese.

  • 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.
