Visit Milan and discover all of its beauties
Thinking of Italy, which cities come to your mind?
You’ve probably thought of Milan too; the Lombard capital is one of the most famous and fascinating cities of Italy.
Economic and financial center, fashion capital and attraction for tourists from around the world, Milan seduces for its monuments and places of interest, its being always on the move and for his inscrutable charm that emanates in spite of its gray and foggy days.
Duomo Square and Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery
The city tour usually begins in the downtown area, from Piazza del Duomo (Duomo Square).
It’s a good choice indeed: you will be immediately thrown into the main gathering place of the city, where its greatest symbol stands.
The Duomo will certainly leave you an impression with its colossal and unusual appearance (it’s the world’s third largest Catholic church), that comes from centuries of reinterpretation of the Gothic style. Look up to 108 meters in height at the main spire of the Duomo, where the famous Madonnina (patron saint of Milan) overlooks the city, and then head to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.
This covered pedestrian street, called the “living room of Milan”, is one of the earliest examples of 19th century mall and iron architecture.
The gallery, emblem of Italian excellence, has plenty of luxurious clubs and historic shops, some of which have been there since its opening to the public in 1867!
La Scala Theatre and Museum
Another undisputed symbol of Milan taste and culture is the famous Teatro La Scala (La Scala Opera House), the main opera house in the city, opened in 1778 and home of the prestigious Choir, Orchestra, Philharmonic and the Academy of Ballet.
While crossing the foyer and seeing the auditorium, the scenes and the orchestra pit, it will be impossible not to think fondly about the many artists who have shared the stage of this magnificent theater.
A visit to the famous Museo Teatrale alla Scala (La Scala Theatrical Museum), which exhibits costumes, portraits and musical instruments, will boost your emotion.
The Castello Sforzesco (Sforza Castle), now home to important cultural institutions, is another famous Milan monument that has been the subject – in the course of its history, from the 15th century onwards – of troubled vicissitudes: constructions, demolitions, reconstructions, restorations and improvements.
This castle, among the largest in Europe, is now a popular tourist destination: it seems to make you want to go back in time!
You’ll also have the chance to follow the path of the soldiers’ patrol, to enjoy particular and evocative views of the castle and the city.
The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci
No tourist should leave Milan before having admired L’Ultima Cena (The Last Supper), the masterpiece of Renaissance painting by Leonardo da Vinci, which is next to the Basilica di Santa Maria delle Grazie (Holy Mary of Grace Church).
