In the center of Milan, a couple of minutes away from the Fashion District is this thousand year old Church. Not all the building is original as it has been remodeled and adapted during the centuries. Its bell tower, for instance, is much more recent,...More

One of the oldest churches in the city. It was built in the 11th century. You must be lucky to get in, three times we were there was closed. It is in the very busy part of Milan.

Peaceful and very nice church for relaxing and take a breath between running out for shopping. Nice paintings and everything needed for visiting. Special background why this building is there.

Relatively unadorned, but authentic church. The place is quiet, genuine - no gift shop, no ticket to get in, no armed guards, just a lovely old church. Lovely frescoes, but restrained stained glass windows. Nice, certainly, but no wow factor.

Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square
is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon
of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds
to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria
Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high
quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch
expedition into a royal experience. Head to the
rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the
