“The symbol of the city is located on Piazza del Duomo, the historic center and best starting point for a stay in Milan. Started in 1386, the construction of Milan Cathedral took nearly 500 years. It was finished under the order of Napoleon Bonaparte who absolutely wanted to be crowned as king of Italy there. This architectural wonder is the third largest cathedral in the world, after St. Peter’s Cathedral in Rome and the Cathedral of Seville. From the outside, you can admire its facade entirely made of perfectly carved stones. The 2.000 white marble statues and 136 arrows makes the whole thing super impressive! When seeing it, you clearly understand why it’s nicknamed “the marble hedgehog”. The interior is also worth a visit, with its 5 sumptuous naves and 52 columns, each representing a week of the year. You can also admire sarcophagi and tombs of several archbishops, as well as a crucifix made by the master Leonardo Da Vinci himself! But the highlight of the visit is the possibility to go on the terrace of the Cathedral. From up there, the view of Milan is breathtaking! You can choose to go there either by stairs or elevator, the second option being of course a bit more expensive.”

“Without a doubt the most famous church in Milan, Santa Maria delle Grazie is known for housing one of the most beautiful masterpieces ever made, the painting of the Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci. Leonardo da Vinci painted the Last Supper in the refectory of the monastery, now called “Cenacolo” in reference to the masterpiece. Thousands of tourists come every year to admire this painting representing the last meal of Jesus Christ.”

“One of the most ancient churches in Milan, it was built by St. Ambrose in 379–386, in an area where numerous martyrs of the Roman persecutions had been buried. The first name of the church was in fact Basilica Martyrum. The church is mostly built in brickwork of different origins and colors, with parts of stone and white plastering. The current Romanesque church was begun around 1080.”

Closed on Mondays, the entrance is free.”

“Exiting Sempione Park in a north-westerly direction, visitors come face to face with one of the most important neoclassical monuments of the city: the Arco della Pace, built in 1807 and designed by Luigi Cagnola. Together with two toll gates it represents the place where the strada del Sempione entered Milan and was built in the Napoleonic era to connect Milan and Paris; the current Corso Sempione initiates from here. From an urban point of view the construction of the first section dates from the late nineteenth-early twentieth century and is now a prestigious residential area. In recent years, the area in the immediate vicinity of the Arco della Pace has become an important centre of nightlife in Milan with an appealing selection of dining options. Another place of interest close by is the Arena Civica - designed by Luigi Canonica and built in 1806 with materials from the demolition of the Castello’s fortifications - which hosts concerts and cultural and sporting events.”

“The area surrounding Porta Ticinese is a historic quartiere of Milan; it has its coat of arms, a three-legged red stool on a silver background. The district is part of the Navigli area of Milan, which is rich of monuments, tourist attractions, night life, and more, and qualifies as one of the most important areas of Milan outside the historic centre. It includes the notable Basilica of Sant'Eustorgio, a basilica that was established in the middle ages and restored several times through the centuries, so that the original romanesque structure has been complemented with Renaissance elements. Sant'Eustorgio is located in a well known city park called Parco delle Basiliche, which also includes another prominent basilica, that of San Lorenzo. Nearby are also the Colonne di San Lorenzo, which are among the best preserved Roman ruins in Milan. The plaza where the Colonne di San Lorenzo are located is also one of the key places of the so-called "Milanese movida", i.e., night-life.”
