I enjoyed this Basilica very much. I especially liked the the Romanesque atrium where you enter, which has a much different look than most churches and a real medieval feel. The interesting pulpit and precious altar inside are also quite impressive.

The Milan Duomo is spectacular, but this place is full of amazing historical interest. Seriously old artifacts and material about the Patron Saint of Milan. Really interesting but not a flashy place for good reason. A little bit of research about this place will prove...More

A spot visited by far fewer tourists than the Duomo, bu well worth a visit. Nice exterior with the 2 old campaniles, masonwork on the pillars and a beautiful bronze door. The interior has a beautiful golden alter and a lovely mosaic.

We visited on a Sunday afternoon and were lucky enough to experience a service, which was very moving. I found the place extremely calming.

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.
