I don't know how important they are in the history, but from my part, the place is not so impressive. I guess is a nice way to spend some time, but only if you are not hustled by all the africans that stay around there...More

Le Colonne di San Lorenzo is an historic place in Milan. But during the night everything is different because a lot of guys meet there. You can buy a beer and cocktail and drink with your friends in the square.

16 corinthian columns are the ruins of Roman era. Now it's the square where young Italians enjoy their free time. You have to look at this place if you love ancient history.

Quite impressive roman columns housed close to the church place where lot of young people meet during day/night. Hectic place during working hours offers some good places to sit and eat.

You cannot find so much of the antiquity in Milan, but this is the best preserved thing from the Roman times. It is not something that makes you stare, but it is worth seeing. It is situated near San Lorenzo church in lovely area,

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
