About Milan

La Vita Moda, the stylish life. This is something the people of Milan can relate to as the fashion capital of Europe. The city of Milan is a futuristic metropolitan with hi tech science behind the fast paced life. The financial capital of Italy had an inspiring make over. Having been destroyed during the Second World War, its growth into an ultra modern hub is nothing short of mind boggling. Milan attracts tourists in large numbers each year who visit not just for the modern side of the city and the fashion extravaganzas but also the well preserved and highlighted monuments of historical importance. Milan, being Italy's most modern city, is nowhere new. It has been around since more than 26 centuries and constantly evolving while being ruled by great powers and kingdoms. Italy's fame as a design powerhouse is world renown but one can't help but appreciate it even more when up close and personal in the city brimming with creativity and designs 24x7. What truly sets Milan apart for tourists is its collective zeal to live life to the fullest and enjoy the worldly pleasures the city offers. It is a paradise for shopping, football, opera, and nightlife. Shopaholics can have a field day looking around for the latest trends and big labels and showrooms throughout the city. There is superfluity when it comes to choosing attractions to visit. At the centre of attention and the most eye catching attraction in all of Milan is the Duomo, which is one of the largest and grandiose Gothic cathedrals in the world. Keeping its history intact, Milan also has attractions like La Scala, a legendary opera house known to be the best established in the world. Galleria Vittorio Emanuele is an ancient yet glamorous arcaded shopping gallery often touted as the mother of all malls. The Brera art gallery offers some of the finest pieces of artworks in Europe. Pirelli tower is an architectural marvel of the modernist 1960s. Sports fans can head to San Siro, which is a huge and famed stadium. Take a trip to the Castello Sforzesco, a grand fairy tale medieval castle. Milan’s Santa Maria alle Grazie Basilica is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to one of the world's most famous paintings by Leonardo Da Vinci - The Last Supper. Museums and Churches are aplenty and spread across the whole city. Piazza del Duomo is one among the many plazas of Milan but is set apart by its central location and nearby attractions which makes it the heart of Milan. The list of attractions is endless. The city has something to offer on every corner and as a tourist, one is spoilt for choice. Make sure to take out a considerable amount of time for this city of design!

Local Culture - Milan's cultural legacy is decorated with names of greats like Caesars, Napoleon, the Austro-Hungarians and Mussolini. The city's fascinating cultural history is not as vibrantly on display but needs to be explored with time. The various Art galleries, Museums and even the festivals and events offer deep insights. The rich culture of Milan is a hidden gem often forgotten due to its portrayal as a modern work obsessed city.

Dining - Just like the rich urban culture of the city itself, the cuisines of Milan are evolved from the peasantry cooking of ancient Italy. The level of gastronomic pleasure available in this city can be observed from the fact that it holds the second highest number of Michelin starred restaurants in the country.

Things to Keep in Mind - Even though Milan can be visited throughout the year, many local businesses and attractions close down during July and August and the city is quieter than usual. Many attractions and shops also remain closed on Mondays throughout the year.
