It is a just a walk around space but great historical story. The crowd is young and vivacious, esp during evenings.

where it remained until 402. So it should be called Imperium Mediolanum, not the Roman, uring that time. The church of San Lorenzo cupola collapsed in the Renaissaince, so it's been rebuilt, maybe twice, but it dtes back to 500 at least.

Step in to the past with a visit to these 5th century columns. Worth a visit because of the history. Also near the remnants of the extensive canal system that Milan used to have.

It was nice to move around here and take some pictures while walking through downtown Milano. The Colonne are beautiful and quite imposing.

very traditional place in the "old" Milano to get an happy hour during end of the week. nice area, always full of young people, however during weekend-night time can be too much crowded and noisy. just keeping it into account, that's it

I am not sure when this structure was erected but it was probably in the roman times. It is a nice place to see and it is free.

The colonnade located in front of the Basilica of San Lorenzo consists of sixteen tall Corinthian columns that was placed here in the 4th century. The columns are impressive, more than seven meters high and together with a nice square it is a perfect opportunity...More

There are not many Roman ruins left in Milan but this colonnade is worth the visit, especially as it is in front of the San Lorenzo bascilica.

The area is interesting because of these columns, but it is probably the Basilica San Lorenzo Maggiore makes it even more worthwhile. The columns are right in front of the church and in themselves do not tell much of a story. The area is more...More

In the summer heat, I could have skipped the trek to these columns. I wasn't too impressed, maybe because I've seen better preserved ruins and columns. There's not much around the area other than shops. More like a meeting point for groups of teenagers.

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
