7. Just west of centre, around Via Marghera, P.za De Angeli, P.za Wagner and P.za Piemonte: ... the many busy cross-streets and intersections, make much of the area relatively busy and lively with many shops and restaurants... in contrast to other areas in Milan, almost all the streets are green and leafy... and the heart of the city is less than 20 minutes away by public transport... almost too many popular restaurants nearby to choose from.. read more

9. Milan's Outer West is also connected to the San Siro Stadium by four bus routes: These outer suburbs are mostly residential... There are no high concentrations of shops or restaurants, but we point you to the best spots... it is probably wise to find your apartment or accommodation either near the Tram 14 line in the south; or near the Metro's fork of the M1 line that runs... straight through the middle of this western area; or finally near the three end stations of the new M5 Metro line (or Tram 16 that runs almost on the same streets)... but four bus routes thread through this area, all running past the San Siro Stadium. read more

External Ring Road of Milan, from the "Beruto Plan": The Tangenziale ring road (made up of National Bypass Motorways) is not to be confused with the "Circonvallazione esterna" external ring road of Milan which is found 3-5 km further in.

Circle of Canals (Cerchia dei Navigli) encircling Milan's "Centro Storico" along its previous Medieval Walls: The "Cerchia dei Navigli" (circle of canals)... is important for encircling the historical centre of Milan known as the "Centro Storico"... the moat or moats around the Medieval Walls were later turned into canals. It was these walls that caused the 13th century Bonvesin da la Riva to remark about the perfection of the city's roundness. read more 



16. Lost Path of the Roman Walls of Milan: ... a smaller and more ancient circle... This of course marks the Roman Walls around Mediolanum - the city's name during Roman times.
