"The apartment is situated in the most ancient area of the city, in front of the church of San Nazaro in Brolo that dates back to the early Christian age.\nNot far there is also the headquarters of the Università degli Studi di Milano, that during the Salone del Mobile it becomes one of the venues of the Fuori Salone (events around the city): the university is in Via Festa del Perdono and in the past it used to be the “Ca’ Granda”, an hospital commissioned by the duke Francesco Sforza and dedicated to needy people. If is a sunny day and you are equipped for a picnic, we suggest you to visit its cloisters. \nAs a curiosity we point out that at n° 3 of Corso di Porta Romana there is a cannonball stuck in the building’s wall (to see it you have to look up), legacy of the period in which the city was occupied by the Austrians who have made the history of this city.\nThe position of this apartment is ideal, especially if you are interested in visiting the important sites of the historical center: the Duomo, the Scala Theatre, the Vittorio Emanuele Gallery (where there is also a tourist information office) are at just 10 minutes of walking distance. It is very close to the stops of the subway lines M1 and M3 (red line and yellow line), and in the area there are the stops of more than 10 public transports of surface. To give an idea, the Sforzesco Castle and the “Last supper” are at only few subway’s stops (M1).\nIf you are around the city center during lunch time, we recommend you to stop by Luini, at n° 16 of Via Santa Radegonda, a bakery famous for its “panzerotti”, traditional dishes from Puglia similar to calzone.\nFor those who come with their own car, there is the Parcheggio del Centro, a parking lot in the private street Via Calderon de la Barca: daily rate 22 €.\nFor shopping lovers, we point out the shop Fornaro specialized in furnishings, just in front of the building, which represents an icon of the history of Milan’s interior design."
