Situated in Corso di Porta Ticinese, the 16th century street and on the square facing the basilica that features the so-called "Colonne di San Lorenzo" (Columns of St. Lawrence), one of the few remains of the Roman "Mediolanum", dating from the 3rd century AD and probably belonging to the large baths built by the emperor Maximian, with windows looking over the Columns and The Basilica, this apartment is carefully furnished in what is considered to be a typically Milan's medieval style.
The area of Ticinese is vibrant with lots of young people night and day and is just a hop, skip and a jump from Via Torino (a little closer to the centre) or close to a good bar to enjoy Milan’s Aperitivo.
The shops are geared more toward the younger market with a mix of youth oriented brands like Lee, Quiksilver and Energy.

Locality and attractions
In the area: Restaurants, bike renting; you can walk all the Navigli area with its beautiful and typical shops and pubs. In the spring and in the summer excursion on Naviglio Grande.
The area surrounding Porta Ticinese is a historic quartiere of Milan; it has its coat of arms, a three-legged red stool on a silver background.
The district is part of the Navigli area of Milan, which is rich of monuments, tourist attractions, night life, and more, and qualifies as one of the most important areas of Milan outside the historic centre. It includes the notable Basilica of Sant'Eustorgio, a basilica that was established in the middle ages and restored several times through the centuries, so that the original romanesque structure has been complemented with Renassaince elements. Sant'Eustorgio is located in a well known city park called Parco delle Basiliche, which also includes another prominent basilica, that of San Lorenzo. Nearby are also the Colonne di San Lorenzo, which are among the best preserved Roman ruins in Milan. The plaza where the Colonne di San Lorenzo are located is also one the key places of the so-called "Milanese movida", I.E., night-life.
