Milan - Italy's Most Cosmopolitan City

Situated on the flat plains of the Po Valley, Milan is Italy's most cosmopolitan city.

Noted as being epicentre of Italian haute couture  fashion, designers, super models and paparazzi descend upon the city twice a year for its spring and autumn fairs.

A worthwhile visit here in Milan is the museum where Leonardo Da Vinci's famous Last Supper painting is on display.

Coffee culture is prominent in Italy and especially in Milan. As you walk around the city there seems to be a never ending supply of quaint little street baristas for you to rest your weary feet at and watch the world go by.

If you are an avid sports fan then Milan will welcome you with the famous San Siro stadium, home to

the AC Milan and Inter football teams. If motor racing is more your sport however the F1 Grand Prix Circuit at Monza may be more to your liking.

And if you are looking for a fine dining experience Milan has several world-renowned restaurants and cafés.

Top 5 things to do in Milan

Milan Cathedral

The Duomo di Milano is dedicated to Santa Maria Nascente and is the seat of the Archbishop of Milan.

Taking five centuries to complete, Milan Cathedral is the largest Gothic cathedral and the second largest Catholic cathedral in the world.

Construction started in 1386 and was officially completed in 1965.

The inside of Milan Cathedral hosts various monuments and artworks including the Archbishop Alberto da Intimiano's sarcophagus overlooked by a large copper crucifix, the Trivulzio Candelabrum which has a 12th century base engraved with vines, vegetables and imaginary animals and the very impressive 225-rank pipe-organ (the largest in Italy).

Perhaps the best part of visiting the cathedral is getting access to the roof, by ticket only. Seeing the 135 spires up close is fascinating and of course you get a great rooftop view over Milan city centre down below.
