Porta Romana ("Roman Gate") is a former city gate of Milan, Italy. In its present form, the gate dates back to the 16th century Spanish walls of Milan.

Its origins can be traced further back to the Roman walls of the city. They had a "Roman Gate" in the same area. Porta Romana was the first and the main imperial entrance of the entire city of Milan. It was the starting point of the road leading to Ancient Rome.
