Porta Nuova


The Porta Nuova district is the symbol of an avant-garde and innovative city in terms of architecture, design and environmental protection. The area has been the focus of one of the largest urban redevelopment projects in Europe. Bicycle and pedestrian paths, immersed in public green spaces, across squares and bridges ensure safe and sustainable mobility. The Towers that overlook Piazza Gae Aulenti are among the most imposing and tallest buildings in the renovated district. Between the skyscrapers one can find the Biblioteca degli Alberi, park and botanical garden.

In Piazza Gae Aulenti you can stroll or sit on the stone bench to admire the play water fountains to the sound of music, or go shopping. From here you can easily reach the Bosco Verticale (Vertical Forest) built on two towers with about 1000 trees that change color depending on the season and regulate the microclimate, the first example of bio-architecture and urban reforestation. You must also stop by Corso Como for a spritz at sunset in one of the main streets of Milanese life.
