A fashionable street in Milan with splendid Palaces and fashion shops. Casa Fantana-Silvestri, 10-14 Corso Veneziai is a private Renaissance building of the 1800's. Palazzo Castiglione, 47 Cordo Venezia, is the most significant example of Art Noveau architecture in Italy. There is no entry to either of these properties.
San Simpliciano - on the way to Corso Venezia, stopped at the Church of San Simpliciano. The church was founded by Sant'Ambrogio in the 4th Century. A neoclassical altar covers the wooden choir 1588. A Lunette over one of the doors of the church are of three martyrs who were sent by St Ambrose to Val di Non in northern Italy to spread Christianity. In 397 they were martyred.
Walked towards the Duomo to catch the Metro home. What a summer afternoon so added a few photos of the Duomo area. Behind it are lots of shops for ordinary incomes.
