Monte Stella is better known as the “little mountain of San Siro”. With its height of 164 feet and almost 500 feet of elevation gain it is the right place for those who want to spice up their running with some hills. It is located in the QT8 district in north-west of Milan, about 8km from the center and an easy train ride on the NM1. It is an artificial mountain, built with the rubble of buildings bombed during the Second World War. At its feet there’s the XXV April Field, a historic sports venue where great champions of athletics and triathlon still train themselves. To get a full workout, complete multiple loops.
