Fashion Capital of the World, Milan is a city of style and substance.
Milan, or Milano, as locals call it, is a city brimming with energy. Italy's business and fashion hub, Milan is also the home to the nation's stock exchange. But don't let the city's professional side fool you. Milan is a place that prides itself on history and culture, and the locals always seems to have a good time. Milan's signature building is the Duomo, an imposing Gothic cathedral sitting in the heart of this former Roman capital. The combination of Milan's size and beauty make it a must-see city. You can also look forward to elegant evenings at the legendary La Scala opera. Then there are the charming cafes and restaurants, great shopping, and breathtaking art and architecture.
Besides being the home of Da Vinci's Last Supper, Milan is also rich in art galleries. You can see everything from the old masters to modern art. This being Italy, you'll find delicious cuisine in Milan too. The "aperitivo" is one of the most interesting traditions of Milan gastronomy. At many of the city's cafes and bars in the early evening you can pay a slightly higher price for a drink. Then you can take your pick from a free buffet. It's one of the best ways to experience the different flavors of Milanese cooking. Milan is also a perfect stop for flight connections to other areas of Italy. Milan's compact city center means that one or two days here will be enough to satisfy your curiosity.
