Know Before You Go
The Wall of Dolls can be visited and seen any time as it's located on a major public road. It's relatively easy to find, located on Via Edmondo de Amicis just before the junction of Corso di Porta Ticinese where the street becomes Via Molino delle Armi. The Wall is directly opposite the small church of Parrochia Ortodossa Romena.There are numerous tram stops nearby, the closest being Colonne di San Lorenzo. The nearest Metro stations is Sant'Ambrogio which is just over 10 minutes' walk away directly up Via Edmondo de Amicis. Caution is advised for night visitors. Although the Ticinese area is a popular one with thriving nightlife, the nearby piazza and columns in front of the San Lorenzo Basilica have a reputation as a hotspot for drug dealing. The district is generally safe and attracts a lot of young people and tourists, but take care to avoid pickpockets, hawkers and people who wish to sell or buy weed.
