Besides functioning as a transportation hub, Milan's Central Train Station is a labyrinth of shops and restaurants. Step just outside and you'll be standing in an expansive square in front of Pirellone, one of Milan’s first skyscrapers, and an area filled with offices, some shopping, restaurants and cafes.

Despite centuries of rich history, Milan prides itself on being Italy's most contemporary city and fashion capital. The ancient Duomo is just one of many churches around the city, and you'll also find numerous world-class museums, theaters, and opera houses like La Scala.
To discover the city's history, head to the red brick Castello Sforzesco, where the prominent Sforza-Visconti families of Milan used to live. Today, you'll find several museums inside, one of which features the "Rondanini Pietà" – Michaelangelo's final work. Continue exploring down the Corso Magenta, lined with chic cafés and impressive examples of Milanese architecture like the Palazzo Litta. The most famous highlight lies inside Santa Maria delle Grazie church, home to Leonardo da Vinci’s "The Last Supper."
The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele blends the best of shopping with impressive architecture. This enormous shopping mall is set inside a glass-domed, 19th century palace and features an intricate mosaic floor lined with designer boutiques like Louis Vuitton and Prada.
Milan's main international airport is Malpensa, with an express train, buses, and taxis into the city.

Before we left home all the "know-it-alls" who have never been there, had been there twenty years ago, and/or spent a night stop over on a tour, etc. told us to get in and get out of Milan. We absolutely adored our stay in Milan and would loved to have stayed longer. We were in Italy for over a month and we started our trip in Milan for four nights and returned for another three nights. The most important thing to know is that there is a lot more to Milan than the Duomo area, nice as it is. We enjoyed the Berea neighborhood. We liked exploring the many varied different neighborhoods, etc. There is just so much to see and do in Milan.
Milan was definitely a discovery for me. I went with no expectations other than seeing the famous Duomo but I ended up liking the small hidden corners of the city much better. Definitely spend some time in the city, discovering the different districts rather than the beat path of tourism.
Milano is a fun city, so much to see and do. I think, if you lived here you could find some really cool, hole in the wall locations. Such a great place to stage your travels around Europe to get cheap flights to other countries!
We stayed for the weekend. City center is definitely worth just roaming around and sightseeing art at its best! Galleries, museums, cathedrals, and then of course fashion, good looking people, amazing restaurants, coffees, and food!
