ALWAYS FREE ENTRY
Has silence always been sovereign here? Has there always been so much tranquillity and peace? Surely not! Do you see those long and narrow stone bits? Those are Mediolanum Roman Amphitheatre ruins!
If you let your imagination free and your memory too – if you have already studied it at school – you will surely agree that this was not a silent place at all! Deadly fights between Gladiators and wild beasts were held while an excited crowd -sitting on the tiers – applauded, shouted and incited to a merciless fight! Now silence reigns here and this is the perfect place to enjoy the birds chirping and if it is spring – weather permitting – lie down on the grass and start dreaming!
Inside Alda Levi Antiquarium – just at the entrance – if you want you can learn more about the amphitheatre. A collection of archaeological finds of the city will help you to better understand the real function of the amphitheatre, the ancient Romans cultures and much more.
By leaving behind this paradise of peace and tranquillity you will find everything you need! Are you hungry? Do you want a snack? An Ice cream? A lunch in a trattoria? A Pizza? Sushi? A Kebab? An hamburger with some fries? Here you are very close to Colonne di San Lorenzo and Corso di Porta Ticinese. This is Milan throbbing heart teeming with more or less historical bars and pubs with a great price/quality ratio! We are sure you will find something you like!
