About Milan

Including tips for the best time to visit Milan

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.

Milan is great for shopping n eating good museums. We were robbed so it’s gotten very dangerous someone got into my purse and stole our money! The train station is very frightening lots of people just roaming around the central train station and out side.

It's great if you are going for the fashion, and there are a few touristic places to go and see. We stayed for a short period, and I have stayed a couple of times before. In terms of what Italy as a whole has to offer, Milan isn't high on my list. Still worth chalking it off your list, as there is plenty to offer.

When upon arriving into Milan it was cold and rainy and miserable. We had plan a 2 night stay and left after one. While the Duomo is a sight to see on a Friday night it’s not the place to be too many people locals and tourists as it seems it’s a local hangout with the mall and store and cute cafes. But it seems staff at the cafes are not very friendly might but due to the extreme amount of people!!!!

November 1, 2018

Milan is a beautiful, modern city with many things to see. I'd recommend doing the half day walking tour with Viator which gives you a great overview of the central City. Wish we had stayed longer to see more! The metro system is good and Eady to navigate.

The history and architecture was so worth the trip.

October 30, 2018

The history and architecture was so worth the trip. The food and locals were awesome! I would def recommend doing hop on hop off bus tours! So worth the money! And if you plan on going to see The Last Supper , either get your tickets months ahead of time or show up around 8 am when they know how many cancellations they had for the day and you can maybe snag one but no guarantee. Also , if you go there , there’s a little print/tourist shop across from there that is absolutely amazing and you can but souvenirs much cheaper than st the museum itself. This little Italian man makes almost everything in his shop! So worth the stop in even if you don’t buy a thing !!

Big city with some old world charm.

October 22, 2018

Big city with some old world charm. Great food at all price ranges. Be careful buying your tickets that might be “vouchers” with an agency & you may not get a ticket when you arrive at the museum or tour! Also, safeguard your passport, money & valuables from pickpockets! Awareness, not fear. Shopping is great!
