What more could you ask for? Exquisite architecture, extensive history, a shopper’s haven and food to satisfy even the fussiest of eaters - a holiday to Milan has it all.
A place oozing with Italian style, substance and soul, Milan is the most cosmopolitan of Italian cities. Resting in the plains of Po Valley, Milan has firmly established itself in the world of finance, fashion and football. Twice a year, the city attracts the most elite designers, supermodels and paparazzi for its spring and autumn catwalks. Valentino, Versace, Armani and many more grace the stage helping to maintain Milan’s reputation for flair, drama and creativity.
Come evening, Milan does not fall short with a vibrant, lively nightlife and cultural scene. Visitors are treated to the Milanese institution of aperitivo, a buffet of antipasti, free with drinks, which is served in the bars and restaurants between 6pm and 9pm. Or if drama is what takes your fancy, Milan can satisfy its visitor with an incredible theatre scene all year round at the world-famous La Scala and Piccolo Teatro.
Boasting a rich and amazing history, Milan attracts historians and culture enthusiasts worldwide. Treasures including Milan’s elaborate cathedral, Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper at the Santa Maria delle Grazie Church, La Scala opera house and Castello Sforzesco all of which survived the extensive WW2 damage, can be admired on an open-top double-decker bus or by a guided walking tour of the city.
A holiday in Milan will also give you the opportunity to view some of the greatest masterpieces of Italian art. Visit the Brera Art Gallery for displays from the XIV to the XX century, including the famous Raphael’s “Marriage of the Virgin”, or wander through the galleries in Milan’s main museum ‘Pinacoteca’ famous for its prestigious collection of ancient and modern paintings.
