Arco della Pace, Milan

4.4
Overlooking the city center stands Arco della Pace, an early 19th-century triumphal arch. The Neoclassical marble structure features statues both on top and carved into the sides depicting major historic events, important battles, classical mythology, and allegories. The historical square is quiet, and the arch perfectly frames the castle in the distance. Walk through the large park, pack a picnic, and relax in the presence of this city landmark.

  • Lovely monument currently being restored to maintain its beauty. Located within easy walking distance from the train or bus you can get some food or drinks close by and then take a walk around.. Wide, open square with lots of room and big stairs where you can take a rest. It's an active square and usually someone is playing music.
  • Ideal place to visit, day or night! During the day not much really happens here but it's a small marvel to see. During the night people congregate, sometimes a street musician plays, can be a romantic place to bring someone and best of all - it's free
