Key highlights of Milan
Milan in the Lombardy region of North Italy is the financial, economic and industrial hub of the country. Of course it is also a major global fashion capital. While Milan might not be full of history like Rome, or a cultural capital like Florence, it has its own vibe combining commerce with celebrity and style. Milan is the gateway to the Dolomites and to the Italian Lakes, it is close enough to Venice and is an ideal location to base yourself if you want to explore the north of Italy.
Milan sights - a great mix
Milan has many attractions that are magnets for visitors to the city. Known across the world for its stunning architecture is the Duomo, the Cathedral of Milan. Also in Milan is the intriguing Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci, made famous all over again a few years ago by Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code. Along with other attractions such as La Scala opera and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Milan has just the right mix of old world history, culture and new world shopping and fashion.
Milan cuisine and entertainment
It is interesting that as one goes north in Italy, the food and drink changes from what the rest of the world thinks of Italian food. In Milan, pasta drops off the charts, rice and corn rule. Imaginative aperitivos mark the end of the day and entertainment has a distinct high fashion tinge to it.
