“Stunning experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

This was the best thing we visited in Milan, very historic in an interesting part of the city. We even gained a free second hand book from a stall in the basilica as they were donated by local people to anyone interested.

“Don't miss this hidden gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

It is not that easy to locate the entrance to this Church, but it is well
worth the effort. This church is the oldest in Milan and named after the famous bishop
Saint Ambrose, who is buried here. Pay particular attention to the romanesque
details and the Gold altar.

As a contrast to the Duomo, there are not many tourists who found their way
here, which might be a part of the charm. Apart from the cathedral, this is
the most interesting Church in Milan. I truly recommend a visit.

“A must-see! particularly for Romanesque church - lovers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

The impressive architecture is to be seen already by far and you won't be disappointed at entering. Make sure you are not missing out on checking the skilfully carved wooden door in between the 2 entrances (protected by glass) and all the little Romanesque details everywhere. I can absolutely recommend paying the small entrance fee at the sacristy? in order to get to see more little treasures at the top of the church. You will be surprised - starting by the delicate baroque frescoes at the ceiling up to the objects being presented. The church is a jewel - outside and inside.
