ALL THE SPOTS YOU CANNOT MIS!
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.
The main square, for centuries geographical and vital centre of Milan. Showcase of the most representative buildings of the city such as the magnificent Cathedral and elegant Galleria. Through the monuments and buildings that overlook the square you can really follow the story of Milan, from its origins to the present day. Definitely the ideal starting point for exploring the city.
Amazing transit connecting the Duomo and the Teatro alla Scala, which reflects the original idea of the designers to create an arcade serving as a display.
The Castello Sforzesco is one of the most iconic landmarks and popular areas of Milan. The castle has been the seat of the Civic Museum since 1896 and is home to one of the largest art collections in the city.
Linked to Piazza del Duomo through the Gallery, Piazza della Scala is full of buildings with a great artistic and historical value.
First of all, the iconic Scala Theatre, built by Piermarini between 1776 and 1778.
Then, Palazzo Marino, since 1861 headquarters of the municipality of Milan; the Leonardo da Vinci monument, created in the past century.
The small piazza Mercanti, on the road connecting the Duomo to the Castello Sforzesco, is a medieval-looking corner, an unusual view of the city of Milan. The buildings that surround it date back to different eras and show the development of civil architecture in Milan over the centuries.
The beautiful Santa Maria delle Grazie is a living testimony of the Renaissance in Milan and holds within it the masterpiece of “The Last Supper”.
Heart of history and spirituality, a treasure of sacred art, the Basilica of Sant’Ambrogio is together with the Duomo at the heart of Milan’s spiritual life.
Milan has been for centuries a navigable city similar to Venice with channels, called canals, and marinas. The Navigli, which includes the neighbouring streets to the Naviglio Grande, the Naviglio Pavese and the Darsena remembers its past and offers picturesque, fascinating views.
