Top 20 Sant'Ambrogio & San Vittore, Milan vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
The neighbourhoods of Sant'Ambrogio & San Vittore sit on the South-West edge of Milan's historical centre. Sant'Ambrogio is home to the Universitá Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, the city's largest private university, so the area has a large student population. As a result, you’ll find lots of inexpensive restaurants, cafés, sandwich shops, and pizzerias. The fact that it has a large student population isn't to suggest that it is low-end though - the area is extremely attractive and is also home to some very affluent, elegant Milanesi. It's also got some lovely churches - the eponymous Basilica di San Vittore al Corpo and Basilica di Sant'Ambrogio. One thing to know – this area’s quite central, and given Milan’s a busy city, this means that there’s always a fair amount of noise coming from the street, whether it be passing trams, roadworks, or something else. And as the city expands, there are going to be more and more infrastructure projects further out from the centre.
