TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

On this running tour you will run through centuries discovering how the City of Milan was shaped as a city through time.

Milan being the former capital of the Western Roman Empire still have signs of its Roman greatness and the romanic rest such as Colonne di San Lorenzo, which is the first sight on our running tour is evidence of this. This is what remains of the old thermal baths and today this place is known for its vibrant nightlife.

As we run a little further runners reach the remains of the old amphitheater where with a little imagination you can still hear the sound of gladiator fights. Running through the old city narrow streets you will soon find the Basilica of Sant Ambrogio, one of oldest Romanic church, with its famous column signed by the devil’s horns while he was chasing Ambrogio, according to the legend. We will of course tell you the entire legend on the running tour.

We run towards Navigli’s area, a suggestive district surrounded by canals crowded by typical restaurants and bars that today is the perfect place to enjoy the evening “aperitivo” ritual. These artificial canals with their characteristic sluices built by Leonardo Da Vinci were used to bring the stones for the Duomo Cathedral construction by boat.

Speaking about Leonardo’s presence in Milan, a must see is Santa Maria delle Grazie, where the most famous mural painting “Last Supper” is conserved.

Our run in the history proceeds towards Castello Sforzesco where you will pass through its courtyards presenting the medieval atmosphere. Last but not least, in Parco Sempione, the biggest park of Milan you will breathe in the Napoleon influence with the big sporting arena and the Arch of Triumph, twin of the Parisian one.

Voila – thousands years of history in just 10 km and don’t be surprised if Milan is much more than what you expected.
