Milan is one of the largest, and most elegant cities in Italy. Known worldwide as a shopping and fashion capital, it is also filled with architectural gems and glorious artworks, making the it the perfect destination for a cultural weekend break.
A Milan city break is not complete without a visit to the famous Duomo, the second biggest cathedral in Europe, and if you’re an art lover, make sure you take the chance see Da Vinci’s Last Supper, one of the most famous paintings in the world. If you’re a sports fan, head to San Siro, home of AC Milan, or for shopping check out the incredible range of designer stores in the beautiful Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the world’s oldest active shopping mall.
Many of Milan’s attractions are in the historic centre, which is easiest to navigate on foot. If you’re looking to go further afield, there is a great network of buses, trams and the metro system, all of which use the same ticketing system, so you can spend just €1.50 for 90 minutes of travel time.
