The relics that left of IV'th century ancient church right in the center of Missori square. It called San Giovanni in Conca. Not really there's much to see, sadly.

This crypt is in front of the Dei Cavalieri hotel we were staying in so I decided to have a look. It is quite small crypt but is part of a church that was on the site in about 600. For various reasons the original...More

Nice to see, but it was closed when I arrived. Good to see and take pictures. It is very closed to the city center, but small and surrounded by modern buildings.

allow me to start by ranting at whoever at TripAdvisor is responsible for naming this entry. The proper indexing is the name of the medieval church: "San Giovanni in Conca", of which only the crypt remains. If you don’t know it is there, you will...More

The church of San Giovanni in Conca had the unfortunate luck to be located exactly where city officials wanted to expand the roads. Remember that the Milanese wanted to be modern and didn't much value their old stuff. Boom.! But afterwards, they had an "oops"...More

The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient
days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar
to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the
Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are
two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande.
The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk
with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes
in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns
