Starting from the center of Piazza Duomo, in front of the statue of
Vittorio Emanuele II, we will take via Torino, on the right.
Walking through it, among shops, bars, and various commercial activities,
you can reach the famous Colonne di San Lorenzo, near Porta Ticinese,
an ancient gateway to the city.
The basilica of San Lorenzo Maggiore, from the Roman era, was erected
between the end of the fourth and the beginning of the fifth century
and is one of the oldest churches in Milan. Opposite are the medieval
Porta Ticinese and the columns of San Lorenzo: from the Roman age,
they represent an irreplaceable meeting point for the Milanese for summer
Continuing the Milan itinerary along the Parco delle Basiliche, we find
the Basilica of Sant'Eustorgio, built in the 4th century.
The history of this basilica is intertwined with the legend.
It is said, in fact, that the wagon that carried the relics of the Magi came
inexplicably stopped, the wheels were heavy as boulders, and the oxen
and the horses could not go any further.
The bishop of that time, Eustorgio, was therefore obliged to build a
basilica outside the gates of the city, which could guard the holy relics.
At the end of Porta Ticinese we arrive in piazza XXIV maggio, today very
lively thanks to the restoration of the ancient dock. Here we can rest
together with our hairy, drink something fresh or play on the banks.
