Ticinese

Ticinese, Milan, Italy

The basics

The Ticinese neighborhood is among the oldest in Milan and takes its name from the historic city gate marking the southern end of the Corso di Porta Ticinese. Though Milan's best-preserved Roman ruins—the circus and amphitheater—are located here, as are the Basilicas of San Lorenzo and Sant'Eustorgio, the neighborhood is best known for its excellent shopping and vibrant nightlife. On summer evenings and weekends, the streets are crowded with locals window shopping or relaxing at outdoor restaurants and bars.

Join a hop-on hop-off bus tour to explore this bustling neighborhood, or take a walking tour with a gourmet slant to discover its excellent food scene.
