Milan is a fast-paced metropolis where fashion, design, shopping, football, opera, and nightlife reign supreme.
Milan remains one of the fashion capitals of the world – fashion aficionados, supermodels and international paparazzi descend upon the city twice a year for its spring and autumn weeks. However, its wealth of historical and modern marvels showcase centuries of art and culture.
The Duomo is one of the biggest and grandest Gothic cathedrals in the world, while La Scala is one of the world’s foremost opera houses. The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele is a must-see ancient arcaded shopping gallery, while other destinations include: the Brera art gallery, with some of the finest artistic works in Europe; the Pirelli tower, a majestic example of 1960s modernist Italian architecture; the San Siro, a huge and famed football stadium; and the Castello Sforzesco, a grand medieval castle.
One of the world’s most famous paintings, Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper, can be found at the Santa Maria delle Grazie Basilica.
