About Milan

Including tips for the best time to visit Milan

Despite having centuries worth of history, Milan prides itself on being Italy's most contemporary city and fashion capital. Its ancient Duomo is just one of many churches dotted around the city, and you'll also find a variety of museums, world-class theatres and established opera houses such as La Scala.

To discover the city's history, head to the red brick Castello Sforzesco, where the prominent Sforza-Visconti families of Milan once resided. Today, you'll find several museums inside, one of which features the Rondanini Pietà – Michaelangelo's final work. Continue your exploration onto the street of Corso Magenta where you'll find many trendy cafés and impressive examples of Milanese architecture like the Palazzo Litta. But the highlight lies within Santa Maria delle Grazie church and convent, which houses Leonardo da Vinci’s stunning mural, 'The Last Supper'.

To combine the best of shopping with striking architecture, then look no further than Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. Set inside a glass-domed, 19th-century palace, this mammoth shopping mall features an intricate mosaic floor lined with designer brands like Louis Vuitton and Prada.

Milan's main international airport is Malpensa, with transfers available by express train, bus and taxi.

I have been fortunate enough to visit Italy a few times now.

8 April 2020

I have been fortunate enough to visit Italy a few times now. And every time I do so I think; "Well that's it I've seen it now." But then I go back to discover I have been proven wrong. This time it was with Milan, which has much more to offer then simply being a successful commercial and business centre. There is a deep history here, a lasagne like Rome and culture to rival any city. A mix of the classical grandiosity of Turin and the smaller, older world charm of Genoa. And within easy reach of Lake Como and other spots. People were friendly and the food, as always, the best. I would definitely revisit at some point if I am lucky enough.

30 March 2020

Milan is a beautiful City and one of the most under rated destinations in Europe. I have been 4 times now, mainly for the football at the San siro. The architecture in Milan is stunning. the city is easy to navigate and the metro system is, quick, easy to use and cheap. The Duomo is beautiful and allows to roof top visit. San Siro is breath taking and a must see even if its not match day but match day is outstanding. The shopping centre at the duomo is a work of art. Loads of nice bars for food and drink. The people of Milan are very friendly.

Duomo di Milano was quite impressive.

8 March 2020

Duomo di Milano was quite impressive. galleria vittorio emanuele ii was too. however, we could not stay longer due to corona news. It was absolutely easy to get around to Milan. city was fresh, aesthetic and fair enough to shopping. did not want to eat anywhere due to virus. therefore, we shopped from supermarket and prices were quite OK

Milan is a beautiful and exciting city.

5 March 2020

Milan is a beautiful and exciting city. So much history! The fashion and design districts are very interesting and pleasing to the eye. Monumental Cemetery is a place to visit - we liked it a lot! There is also an amazing Starbucks place in the older part of Milan, do not miss it! Day trips to the Italian lakes district are very easy to get/buy from local tour companies.

4 March 2020

We spent our final night in Italy in Milan, in order to be close to the airport and as we only had one night, we decided to stay in the city centre to be able to see the Duomo with ease. The Duomo is breathtaking and the Aperol Bar that overlooks it is a must. For the best aperitivo in town you have to visit the Campari bar across from the Duomo - Camparino in Galleria, which has a delightfully ornate interior. Window shop luxury brands inside the magnificent Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II (Italy's oldest active mall completed in 1877) and end up at the famous La Scala opera house where you might encounter a local serenading passersby in the piazza while you enjoy a creamy gelato. Surrounding the Duomo are all the clothing stores you'd ever want to visit, so shop up a storm while outside glamorous professional and DIY fashion shoots seem to be the norm.

We loved the Navigli area where we stayed.

2 March 2020

We loved the Navigli area where we stayed. It was lively, but not too touristy, with many restaurants, cafes and shops. We enjoyed many "traditional" Italian dishes like pizza, lasagna, tortellini and ravioli - all very yummy! We recommend the PicoBrew Pub in Navigli for a taste of local microbrew beer, as well as the Brera area for shops and restaurants. It's easy to get around Milan by bus, tram or metro. Public transportation is not expensive and runs frequently. If you are someone that loves to people watch while enjoying a glass of your favourite drink, Milan is a good choice.
