Basilica di Sant’Ambrogio

St. Ambrose, the city patron saint, and one-time superstar bishop is buried in the crypt of this red-brick cathedral. It’s a fitting legacy, built and rebuilt with a purposeful simplicity that is truly uplifting: the seminal Lombard Romanesque basilica. Shimmering altar mosaics and a biographical golden altarpiece, which once served as the cladding for the saint’s sarcophagus, light up the shadowy vaulted interior.

Via Monte Napoleone

The beautiful Via Monte Napoleone traces the old city walls built by Roman Emperor Maximian. In the first half of the 19th century, the street was reconstructed almost entirely in a neoclassical style and lined with the palaces of Milan’s highest aristocracy. As World War II came to a close, Via Monte Napoleone was transformed into Milan’s most sought-after fashion destination. Important buildings in the precinct include the Palazzo Melzi di Cusano, the Casa Carcassola and the Palazzetta Tarverna.

Basilica di San Lorenzo

Built at the close of the 4th century, this church is one of the oldest in the city, rebuilt several times after fires in the 11th and 12th centuries and the collapse of the cupola in 1573. In front of the church is the Colonne di San Lorenzo, 16 Corinthian columns dating back to the 2nd and 3rd centuries, thought to have been moved here from a pagan temple in the 300s. In the center of the courtyard, Emporer Constantine stands in bronze, a tribute to his Edict of Milan in 313, which ended Christian persecution within the Roman Empire.
