Sant Ambrogio hotels
The city of Milan was once a shattered city having sustained massive damage after heavy bombing in WWII. It has since reconstructed itself to become a thriving city, famous for business, shopping, fashion and sport. In spite of this modernity, the city is strongly tied to its history, retaining many heritage and cultural sites and buildings. One of its most sacred religious sites is the Basilica di Sant' Ambrogio (Church of Saint Ambrose). SantAmbrogio was the city’s patron saint in the 4th century and is buried in a crypt at the beautiful ancient Byzantine/Romanesque church.
- Visit the basilica located in SantAmbrogio Piazza near the Milan city centre, and admire the ancient altar and mosaics, golden ‘sky’ dome and the crypt where the saint’s remains are preserved.
- Visit the SantAmbrogio Museum next to the church and see how it has evolved over the centuries, being transformed by successive religious orders and reconstruction after World War II damage.
- Take a walking tour of Milan around the city and its historic precincts and see how this thoroughly modern city retains strong roots to its cultural past, and its patron saint.
As a major Italian business and urban hub, Milan is easily accessed by air, roadways and bus and rail links. Getting to SantAmbrogio from your accommodation is quite easy, as the city has an excellent public transport system with rail, buses, and tramcars and a radio bus. Taxis are also readily available and hailed from street corners and taxi stands. There is a direct subway route to the church - the MM2 Sant'Ambrogio. Driving is not a good idea as there is a lot of traffic congestion in the city.
