Porta Venezia

A city gate.

Next to Corso Buenos Aires, one of Milan's main arteries, is Porta Venezia, one of the city gates. It was previously known as the Porta Orientale. From medieval times, the cities of the Roman Empire defended themselves from invasions by fortifying their boundaries. Therefore, various gates were needed into the enclave, the remains of which we see today. In this case, it used to be called the Porta Orientale because it indicated the direction. In the nineteenth century, people started calling it Porta Venezia because it indicated the way to Venice. Now it is a historic memory of the strength of the Empire in times of conquest. This type of measure maintained world hegemony for centuries and centuries. Nowadays, Porta Venezia is one of the most tourist-frequented sites and a photo is a must. Continuing on from here, you have Corso Buenos Aires from where you can continue your trip to Milan.
