The Old Gate and the Hipster Neighborhood AroundPorta Ticinese is a famous gateway, one of the six gates of Milan, located in Milan's ancient southern quarter, Ticinese district. This is a giant neo-classical gate. This gate was built in the 16th century, but in the 19th century was replaced by a new and impressive gate, which was rebuilt. The gate is named after the Ticino River that flows south-west of Milan, directly into the Po Valley.
Next to the gate you will see the oldest oak tree in the city of Milan, surrounded by a cluster of restaurants, entertainment and tourist sites, one of Milan's favorite.
By the way, on Papignano Street, not far from the Ticinese Gate, the largest market in the city takes place on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Visit this market, which is one of Europe's great markets. You will find many bargains here, the most unique of which is designer clothes (it is Milan after all...), at ridiculous prices compared to the stores.
