Beautiful architecture. The courtyard is so different than the other churches in Milan and it is indeed very calm and soothing. We had a great time here. Must visit!
Near the Metro station S. Ambrogio, it is a fine place to visit. The entrance and crypt are free, but there some extra spot that cost 2€. It is also possible to visit the altar but you have to book a reservation explicitly saying that you want to visit it. Overall the visit was good and the duration is around 1h slowly
Lovely church, but be sure you search for the BASILICA San Ambrogio in Google Maps. Just searching for San Ambrogio will return a completely different location which may or may not be what you're looking for.
Prayerful atmosphere maintained. Great
Has rather different architecture from what I have observed in other Italian cities—probably due to the time period when the church was constructed. As such it was relatively refreshing to see. I visited the basilica and the crypt—not many frescoes present (or at least, not huge vibrant ones). There were a number of paintings and artefacts on display. The basilica offered detailed information which is great if you're interested in the history. Another plus was the lack of tourists present; not to mention the free entry to the crypt and basilica.
