Most tourists will focus on the Duomo (Cathedral) when visiting Milan but if you feel more adventurous visit some of the other churches in this most Italian of cities. The Basilica of Sant'Eustorgio is well worth visiting and can be approached by the Metro or by cab. The church is home to one of the finest pieces of 14c sculptures... More

We discovered this jewel walking towards the Navigli District after shopping nearby. It is believed that Bishop of Milan, Eustorgio I, during the fourth century (344-350 AD) had the church built on a cemetery. Over the centuries many additions were made. Towards the turn of this century a major renovation took place and today it is an outstanding place of... More

Stop to visit it, even if you have to pay (not really much). There are inside it so many things that you must stay there at least one hour, suc as the Portinari Chapel. There is the Ark of theThree Wise man, too (but their relics were taken to Colonia, in Germany, during the Middle Ages.)

We passed this beautiful quiet church a few times prior to visiting and was always intrigued by it. The outside is actually more beautiful than the inside. About 3 euros for entry i think and that will get you in the church and museum. Certainly a must visit.

A simple and welcoming church close to a Metro station, worth an hour of every visitor's time whilst sightseeing in Milan. A mix of styles reflects the history of the site, which has outlasted various uprisings, wars, local disagreements and family feuds - a pleasantly cool and enjoyable spot on a hot afternoon. Three Euros covers admission to the church... More

A veritable mix of styles in this very old church which is worth visiting. Like other churches around Milan's city centre, it has survived centuries of changes and upheavals and has the marks of each style whcih has been and gone.

Externally and internally imposing, well decorated, specially interesting is the Cappella Portinari (you need to buy a ticket for it), containing a big marble "Arca" containing the reliquary of S.Pietro da Verona. Look also at the top, nice colourful cupola.

Corso di Porta Ticinese, which stems off Piazza XXIV Maggio, towards the Duomo (milan's central cathedral) is also a stone's throw from the Navigli Area. This is a trendy shopping avenue with upcoming young designers and vintage shops. It’s also rich in culture with the Basilica of Sant'Eustorgio, a church surrounded by the pleasant Basilicas Park (Parco dell Basiliche). It... More

Staying in Navigli

Neighbourhood Profile
Navigli
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 supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
