Welcome to Milan
Milan is the quintessential Italian city, effortlessly blending 15th century architecture with modern skyscrapers, religious art with the latest fashions, and quick slices of pizza with slow-stirred risottos.
In the centro historico, you’ll find the Gothic-style Milan Cathedral, or Duomo, glowing in pink and white marbles, soaring into the sky with 135 spires, and where you can make your way onto the rooftop amidst thousands of statues and gargoyles to better grasp the city’s balance between past and present. Gaze with the golden statue of Mary out over the historic neighborhoods to the gleaming high rises of Porto Nuova.
Whether it’s your first-time in Milan or you’re a return visitor, whether you’re after ancient sites or current trends, Milan is the Italian city for you.
Visit the Leonardo da Vinci Museum and the Louis Vuitton Museum. See the famous Last Supper painting in the monastery of Santa Maria delle Grazie and amazing street art in the Bohemian neighborhood of Porta Ticinese. Shop and sip camparis in the elegant, glass-covered Galleria Vitorio Emmanuele II, then spin your heel for good luck on the delicate parts of Taurus the Bull found on the gallery’s floors.
And Milan is a wonderful city for firsts. Never been to the opera? Dip your musical toes into this Italian tradition at the unrivaled Teatro alla Scala. Never been to a soccer game in Europe? Catch a match at San Siro Stadium, one of the largest stadiums on the continent and home to two of Italy’s top soccer teams. Never toured an urban cemetery? Wander the peaceful paths and beautiful tombs of Cimitero Monumentale.
