The Quartiere Ticinese is one of Milan's liveliest districts and a favourite with young people, in particular students and young alternatives.

Ticinese is just a few minutes on foot from Piazza Duomo, to which it is linked by Via Torino, one of the city's main shopping streets.

Corso di Porta Ticinese is a lively young retail street that joins the medieval Porta Ticinese with Piazza XXIV Maggio and one of the main night spots in Milan. Just a stone's throw from the Columns of San Lorenzo and the Navigli canals, Corso di Porta Ticinese is filled with restaurants, pubs, aperitif locations and lots of on-trend clothing stores.

In summer, the area around the medieval Porta Ticinese and the Columns of San Lorenzo are a meeting place for young students in Milan and a venue for many events and happenings.

The Corso is also the centre of tourist and cultural itinerariesthrough the city, which take in the Basilica of Sant'Eustorgio, one of the city's oldest most valuable churches, its cloisters home to the Diocesan Museum, and the Basilica of San Lorenzo.

Corso di Porta Ticinese leads to the Navigli. While by day the Navigli are the haunt of painters, artists and tourists seeking out picturesque scenes of old Milan, at night they are one of the busiest places of the city nightlife, especially on summer weekends.

The mood of the Navigli is very special and it brings the Milan of yesteryear back to life, with its characteristic osterie, pubs, disco bars and live music venues.
