I was walking around the city and found this Basilica by accident I didn't go inside, as I was wearing shorts.

It is a very nice church but definitely not much to see. Worth a walk through just for the architecture.

I would rate this as a five pointed place, maybe the church is not as beautiful as the duomo or other big basilicas or churches, but his one has a good sculptures and paintings inside but what I found the most interesting thing about it...More

This church is popular amongst tourists and is of historical importance. However, after the magnificent churches of Rome, this one was quiet a disappointment, esp its interiors.

Be careful as this church isn’t open all day. We arrived just before 3pm and it was just opening. The kids weren’t allowed in due to wearing shorts. The church is beautiful inside. There are lovely little side chapels with paintings, sculptures, wonderful fresh flowers...More

Would definitely recommend a visit here, tied in with San Lorenzo, Civic Archaeology Museum and Last Supper. No line. Especially lovely altar piece. Go in the treasury (2 Euro) only if you are interested in seeing church artifacts- there were no explanations of the architecture...More

Navigli
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.
