Church
“One of the most ancient churches in Milan, it was built by St. Ambrose in 379–386, in an area where numerous martyrs of the Roman persecutions had been buried. The first name of the church was in fact Basilica Martyrum. The church is mostly built in brickwork of different origins and colors, with parts of stone and white plastering. The current Romanesque church was begun around 1080.”

“Exiting Sempione Park in a north-westerly direction, visitors come face to face with one of the most important neoclassical monuments of the city: the Arco della Pace, built in 1807 and designed by Luigi Cagnola. Together with two toll gates it represents the place where the strada del Sempione entered Milan and was built in the Napoleonic era to connect Milan and Paris; the current Corso Sempione initiates from here. From an urban point of view the construction of the first section dates from the late nineteenth-early twentieth century and is now a prestigious residential area. In recent years, the area in the immediate vicinity of the Arco della Pace has become an important centre of nightlife in Milan with an appealing selection of dining options. Another place of interest close by is the Arena Civica - designed by Luigi Canonica and built in 1806 with materials from the demolition of the Castello’s fortifications - which hosts concerts and cultural and sporting events.”

“The area surrounding Porta Ticinese is a historic quartiere of Milan; it has its coat of arms, a three-legged red stool on a silver background. The district is part of the Navigli area of Milan, which is rich of monuments, tourist attractions, night life, and more, and qualifies as one of the most important areas of Milan outside the historic centre. It includes the notable Basilica of Sant'Eustorgio, a basilica that was established in the middle ages and restored several times through the centuries, so that the original romanesque structure has been complemented with Renaissance elements. Sant'Eustorgio is located in a well known city park called Parco delle Basiliche, which also includes another prominent basilica, that of San Lorenzo. Nearby are also the Colonne di San Lorenzo, which are among the best preserved Roman ruins in Milan. The plaza where the Colonne di San Lorenzo are located is also one of the key places of the so-called "Milanese movida", i.e., night-life.”
