Why locals love it
Over the past decade or so, Colonne di San Lorenzo has become one of the most popular nightlife spots for penniless young people in Milan. Locals gather here in their hundreds, especially in summer, to drink, play, make noise and have fun until the crack of dawn.
Why you should visit it
Besides being a popular local hangout, Colonne di San Lorenzo is a place of great historical and architectural charm. Drop by to admire the magnificence of the Roman ruins and Basilica di San Lorenzo, located on the opposite side of the square. You’ll be greeted by the sounds of bongos and out-of-tune guitars.
