As our Italy specialist Martha Bakerjian says, “Milan is known as the fashion capital of Italy but its historic center holds many interesting sights. Milan’s Duomo, or cathedral, is the world’s largest Gothic cathedral and Europe’s third largest church — be sure to go up to the roof for a close-up look at the hundreds of gargoyles and statues as well as great views of the city.
Da Vinci’s The Last Supper, in the Church of Santa Maria della Grazie, is one of Italy’s most famous art works but you’ll need to reserve tickets ahead as tickets to see it sell out quickly. La Scala Opera House, built in 1778, is one of Italy’s historic theaters. The city holds many cultural events and there’s a thriving nightlife scene.
Milan’s 15th century castle, Castello Sforzesco, has been turned into a museum complex. Michelangelo’s last sculpture, the Rondanini Pieta, is in the art museum. Other museums include the Museum of Ancient Art, a musical instruments display, and the Archeology Museum’s Egyptian and prehistoric artifacts. The National Museum of Science and Technology Leonardo da Vinci is housed in a former monastery from the 16th century.
Of course Milan is a great place for shopping, from the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II shopping arcade built in 1867 to boutique designer fashion shops in the Quadrilatero d’Oro or Golden Quadrangle and outlet bargain stores.” …
