Dedicated to Ambrose, Milan's patron saint, this basilica is a typical example of Romanesque architecture of the first centuries after 1000 AD.

Cross the wide porticoed atrium in front of the church, then - once inside - note the proportions of the building plan: each of the squares that make up the nave is exactly equal to four of the squares of the aisles.

Sant'Ambrogio

Don't forget to admire the 12th-century pulpit and the gilded main altar, under a 9th-century cyborium. An exit on the left leads to the Museo della Basilica di Sant'Ambrogio.

This district also boasts the Museo della Scienza e della Tecnologia, the best and largest in the country for science and technology, which has a very good website.

The Museo Scienza is hosted in a Renaissance monastery, whose nearby church, the richly stuccoed and frescoed San Vittore, shouldn't be missed either.
