In this area you can see the Porta Ticinese which is the entry point into Milan. There is an area around it but there are trams, cars, and cyclists who buzz around. We visited this area & then moved onto the canal area.

We took the number 3 tramway from the Duomo to get to the Navigli and it dropped us off right in front of the Porta Ticinese. Quite an imposing structure and a fitting way to begin the exploration of the Navigli! From the tram stop...More

is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon
of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds
to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria
Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high

expedition into a royal experience. Head to the
rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the
