a beautiful, amazing, global example of world class Basilica Romanica very well-preserved. I visited Sant'Ambrogio many times, almost during religious events or even traditional mass: even for non-religious people is might be a great experience of ancient spirit and extraordinary craftsmanship.

As a church history buff with a soft spot for St. Ambrose, I was more excited to visit Sant'Ambrogio than almost any other place in Milan. The ancient architectural details and furnishings and relatively newer Romanesque basilica were fascinating, and the attached Sacello di San...More

Unlike the Doumo, this church and surrounding property has been here since the 900s. The cloisters of the church are lined with pre Christian artifacts. The interior is subdued and lined with ancient frescos and mosiacs. Easy to visit using the Metro.

Mesmerising and thought provoking - we would have trouble now setting out to build this without the technology we have today. Peaceful and tranquil.

This church is in the wider centre of Milano, so it is not so far from Duomo to be reached on foot. By tram it is just 5,6 minutes. The entrance is free. The enterior is nice but I really liked the columns outside. Worth...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

There are stairs down to the crypt in the main sanctuary just behind the altar and you can also walk around the back of the altar to view the remains of St Ambrose.
