The historical nucleus of Milan
It is the oldest district of Milan, the one on which stood the forum of the Roman Mediolanum and, probably, of the pre-existing Celtic center. It has always been a hectic crossroads of commercial exchanges, activities and craft shops, of life. Its characteristic five-pointed star shape makes it, for enthusiasts, an esoteric landmark. You are a stone's throw from the Duomo, in the so-called Cinque Vie district, the hub of the confluence of Via Santa Marta, Via del Bollo, Via Bocchetto, Via Santa Maria Fulcorina and Via Santa Maria Podone.
An area that exudes elegance, history, architecture and art. But also fashion and design. A refined slow district with a thousand secrets and shops that you can discover slowly on foot or by bike.
In an old medieval convent, right next to the remains of the Roman walls, is the Archaeological Museum with its finds and virtual reconstructions of the imperial city. Almost a must, then, a visit to the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana, a real treasure chest of Renaissance artistic masterpieces such as Leonardo Da Vinci's Codex Atlanticus or the famous Caravaggio fruit basket.
