Monuments Milan in a day
Itineraries > Monuments | Milan in a day

Want to visit Milan in a day and you need a quick guide? Well, we thought this itinerary just to suggest you the gems of the Milanese city that you cannot miss!

Milan, city of fashion, design, art, aperitifs and finance. The faces of Milan are many, too many to get to know them well in a short time. But there are obligatory places, not to be missed, to at least begin to discover it. These are the most important tourist attractions, most representative architectures, important institutions, symbols of the city.

These places may be visited in a classic route, which starting from Piazza del Duomo and walking past the Castello Sforzesco, visits the Navigli district, the Fashion District, and the district of the Pinacoteca di Brera. Definitely do not miss the Romanesque Basilica of S. Ambrogio, where the remains of the patron saint of the city lie and the Renaissance S. Maria delle Grazie with The Last Supper, masterpiece known by everyone.
