Neighbourhood: 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 view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.

Porta Romana
Jan 2020
One of the historical city gates, located close to metro station Porta Romana. Walls had to be removed to construct the road but gate is protected.

Gate of Porta Romana in Milan, Italy
Oct 2018 • Family
At the end of Corso di Porta Romana is this gate standing in the middle of a busy square. Easy to spot once one knows it's there, but also easy to overlook between the traffic and noise, and while walking and trying to cross the streets during the brief pedestrian green lights.

It’s a beautiful monument, however it is not as well-preserved or appreciated as it should be. .....

Nice gate
Oct 2017 • Couples
As most of the gates in Milan this one is also surrounded by heavy traffic. However it is very photogenic, and you have a little history too.

Busy Roads By The Gate
Sep 2016 • Couples
Surrounded by busy roads and the grounds around it are a bit neglected. There's an information board nearby telling visitors a bit about the gate.

Underestimated.
Nov 2015
Well certainly the position it's no helping enhances this beautiful piece of architecture being locate a bit far away from the tourist paths. Although the name is Arco di Porta Romana, absolutely not coming from Roman times but it was built in the Middle Ages but it takes significantly the appearance and characteristics of a Roman arch.
Some incisions are on the stone. But is a quite underestimated attraction.

A nice triumphal monument of the sixteenth century.
Nov 2013 • Solo
This arch is located in the central-southest of Milan.
There's even an underground stop here which is called Porta Romana, a stop of the tram number 9 and one stop of the buses number 62 and 77 (which leads to Chiaravalle abbey).
This arch was built on the line of the Medieval belt which surrounded the city, which in turn followed the Roman walls.
In this area, this is the most interesting part of those walls still standing nowadays.
You can see this arch turning around to it by car or watching from the sidewalks around.
In this area you'll find a spa, some fashion bars and restaurant, a kiosk, and some fast food restaurants.
