Why you should go
Milan is a leading global city, most famous for its arts, fashion, finance and tourism. Home to Italy’s Stock Exchange, Milan Fashion Week and the world-renowned Milan Cathedral, this Italian cultural hub is one of the most visited cities in Europe. If you fancy a day of sightseeing, make sure you see the Duomo, Sforzesco Castle, Leonardo’s Last Supper and Santa Maria delle Grazie; you will be blown away by the architecture, let alone the history behind it all.
If you are visiting Milan solely for the fashion, there’s something on offer for everybody, from high-end stores to independent boutiques. For the most luxurious high-fashion shops in Milan, take a trip to Galleria Vittorio Emanuele; you will find names such as Prada, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Armani and Versace.
Milan is also the perfect destination for foodies; of course, the pasta and pizza in Italy is unlike anywhere else in the world. However, make sure you try some local dishes whilst you’re there – Milan’s local culinary traditions (typical for North Italy cuisines) uses more frequently rice than pasta, and features almost no tomato or fish. And the best bit about food in Milan? There are gelato cafes all over the city for you to sample Italy’s famous ice cream.
When you should go
Milan is the perfect destination to visit at any time of year – there’s always various exhibitions, markets and events happening across the city. When it comes to the weather, the summers reach temperatures of up to 30 degrees, whereas the winters are cold and crisp. No matter when you visit, the city has plenty to offer.
Where you should stay
Milan is home to countless hotels, B&Bs and boutique apartments to suit all styles and budgets. If you want to be as central as possible, try and stay within one mile of the main square, Piazza del Duomo. If you happen to stay any further out, don’t worry – the trams in Milan are very reliable and popular amongst tourists as well as locals.
Fancy doing something a little different during your time in Italy’s fashion capital? Try one of the following:
- San Bernardino alle Ossa – what first may appear as a pretty nondescript church is actually home to a room made entirely of human bones. Not one for the faint hearted!
- Spinning on the Bull’s Balls – head down to the middle of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and find the mosaic design on the floor of a dancing bull. It’s considered good luck if you place your heel on a certain area of the bull’s anatomy and spin around once – you’ll see the locals doing it daily!
- Calamita Cosmica – if you want to see one of the eeriest sculptures in the world, pop down to the Palazzo Reale to find the giant skeleton sculpture. It’s 28 metres in length and weighs 8 tonnes!
