One of the oldest churches in Milan, dedicated to the patron saint of the city and a man who installed Christianity into this part of Italy.

This church is in the wider centre of Milano, so it is not so far from Duomo to be reached on foot. By tram it is just 5,6 minutes. The entrance is free. The enterior is nice but I really liked the columns outside. Worth...More

Bring along a guidebook to learn more about this historic basilica- there's a lot of history there! The skeletal remains of Saint Ambrose and two martyrs can be seen in the crypt- that was certainly interesting. Enjoyed this visit.

Basilica of Sant Ambrosio is one of the oldest churches in Milan and was built in the late 400’s. Its super simplistic design is also a big contrast to the Duomo. Visiting the Basilica is free and given it’s not as well known as the...More

I visited last year on St Ambrogio's day and the cardinal of Milan performed mass. The crypt is intriguing and the church is one of a kind. Pop in for a visit. Take metro line 2, St Ambrogio stop.

I went there and unfortunately it was closed at 14:00 and would open again at 17:30. Check the open hours before you plan to go if you want to get inside.

It is one of the oldest churches in Milan, and as such it has plenty of stories to tell. The information provided inside is quite useful, and you can see the tombs of a few saints in the peaceful crypt under the altar. It also...More

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.
