Ancient Byzantine Basilicas

Go on this three-hour tour with local expert Sara Cerri and hear about the mind-blowing history of Milan’s oldest churches. Both Sant’Ambrogio and San Lorenzo have origins in the 4th century, when the Romans ruled the land. Golden mosaics still glow upon the domed ceilings, reminding visitors of the early Christian church's glory. San Lorenzo’s courtyard contains sixteen Roman columns and a bronze statue of Constantine, the first Christian emperor of Rome. That’s just scratching the surface of the history of these buildings—you’ll have to take the tour for more.
