The enchanting Isola neighbourhood, suspended between past and future
On this walking tour you will discover the Santa Maria alla Fontana church built in 1508 and traditionally attributed to Leonardo da Vinci, and its district called Isola.

Traditionally Isola is also home of cultural associations, clubs, meeting areas, and artisans shops, that make it one of the liveliest areas in Milan.
At the end of the tour you will also discover the Modern Milan with the Porta Nuova/Garibaldi district. This is one of the largest urban regeneration projects in Europe.
