Welcome to Milan

The city of Milan is Italy's business capital, home to a booming fashion and design industry. As well as a great place for shopping and people-watching, where you will be able to spot some the latest style trends, the city of Milan knows how to play. From some of the greatest restaurants in a country already well-known for its gastronomy to theatres, stadiums, museums and stunning monuments, there is something for everyone in Milan.

Its surroundings are equally beautiful. The glamorous and picturesque Italian Lakes - Maggiore, Como, Lugano, Iseo, Orta and Garda - are only within an hour and a half drive from Milan. The Alps are also close to Italy's second city, from which you can catch a glimpse of the snowy peaks glistening in the distance.

The city is divided into different neighbourhoods, each of them with their own personality and vibe. The most visited is the historic centre, around which the town has been built over the centuries. Its beating heart is the Duomo, a 600-year-old cathedral. Everything about this area is grand - the Piazza, the beautiful buildings including the Palazzo Reale and the modern twin buildings of the Arengario, the Teatro alla Scala and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele shopping arcade - dedicated to the first King of Italy. The key streets giving this area its character include the busy Corso Vittorio Emanuele, Via G. Mazzini and Via Orefici.
