Milan
Travel Guide

Milan which includes heritage architecture, street scenes and a sunset

Stroll the streets of the elegant capital of Lombardy and discover the history of art, fashion, culture and see one of the largest churches in the world. Milan is a vibrant metropolis that is characterized by its cosmopolitan culture. Milan is renowned throughout the world as a city of fashion, but it is also the financial heart of Italy. With more than five million inhabitants, it’s one of the largest cities in Europe. Milan was partially destroyed during World War II, but many beautiful, ancient monuments have remained.

Visit the many stunning churches and discover the rich history of Milan. In the heart of the city is the Duomo Cathedral, one of the largest churches in the world and one of the most popular attractions of the city. Cross the Piazza del Duomo to reach the Santa Maria Delle Grazie; in this church and monastery hangs Da Vinci's Last Supper. In the Chiesa di San Maurizio you will see many famous murals, as well as the Archaeological Museum of Milan.

Milan also contains a great selection of non-religious art. Check out the magnificent Villa Reale, one of the best galleries in Milan. Study the work of the best artists of the moment in the Padiglione d'Arte Contemporanea or check nineteenth- and twentieth-century masterpieces in the Galleria d'Arte Moderna. Nearby you’ll find the Pinacoteca di Brera art museum, which displays famous works by Raphael and Caravaggio.

Of course, you can’t visit Italy without glutting out on their incredible food. Enjoy a hearty risotto or pasta or visit one of the many pizzerias and ice cream parlours that you’ll see everywhere. Italy is known for the aperitifs and wines; sample your local favourite or try something new in one of the many wine bars.

See a performance at the Teatro alla Scala and then enjoy the Milanese in the fresh air in the entertainment district Navigli. In summer, the city also continues to warm throughout the night while in winter you can take a trip to the nearby Alps for a bit of skiing or snowboarding.

Milan has its own international airport, but is accessible from many European cities by train well. Once you're in town, the metro and trams are a very convenient and inexpensive way of getting around. Book today and soon you’ll be enjoying the style and elegance of one of the most fashionable cities in Europe you.
