Piazza Gae Aulenti Tours

star-5
5 Reviews
Piazza Gae Aulenti
One of the newest areas of construction in Milan is north of the city center near the Garibaldi train station, including the futuristic Piazza Gae Aulenti. The piazza, which opened in 2012 and is named after the Italian architect who designed Paris’ Musee d’Orsay, is surrounded by three new towers, including one that has the distinction of being Italy's tallest building. The piazza is circular in shape, and elevated above the surrounding ground level, with walkways running around and across its central pool and dancing water fountain displays.

A footbridge connects the piazza to the trendy Corso Como and its many restaurants and bars, making it a popular meeting place for locals, as well as a location for photo shoots. Take a photo walking tour of Milan to expertly capture Piazza Gae Aulenti's reflective surfaces and bring home a beautiful souvenir—or opt to visit as part of a city highlights tour, including admission to Leonardo Da Vinci's 'Last Supper,' as well as the Duomo.

Practical Info

The piazza is located in Milan's financial district, near the Garibaldi and Gioia metro stops. To get there, take the green or purple line to either stop, and walk toward Corso Como. The square is located below the huge Torre UniCredit skyscraper.

Look out for the nearby Bosco Verticale, or Vertical Forest, which consists of two apartment towers with trees growing on every balcony all the way to the top.
Address: Piazza Gae Aulenti, Milan, Lombardy 20124, Italy

"Architecture is a Crystal": Milan and its new skyline

Milan is by far the most cosmopolitan of Italian cities, being since ever the financial and fashion capital. Its growth has produced a virtuous mixture of architectural forms, types and languages, allowing the visitors to see a traditional balcony building face the most modern skyscraper. This private guided tour will lead you from the Central Station, addressed by its designer as the "cathedral of movement", to the business centre of Porta Nuova, including the tallest building in Italy. Giò Ponti, a revered master of Italian design, once wrote that "Architecture is a crystal"; well, in a few hours you will discover all its shining faces. Finally, a typical lunch at a particular restaurant, to enjoy the well-known risotto "alla milanese" with saffron.
