Churches & Chino's
Welcome to Milan, where only fashionistas need apply. The Suave, sophisticated demeanour of this Italian City and its canal lined streets will help you fill even the heftiest of credit card limits!
Streets lined with couture such as Armani, Miu Miu, Versace and Prada and chic restaurants where even the food is cultured will ensure you max your budget long before you have reached the end of your first day.
Milanese food treasures such as porcini pasta or Costoletta alla Milanese washed down with fine Italian wine will leave you feeling like a King or Queen and certain to want to stay here forever!
The visually stunning, magnificent Duomo is the third largest church in Christendom (topped only by St Peter's in Rome and Seville's cathedral) An amazing 3,500 statues adorn the Duomo as well as 52 Pillars, 135 spires and 5 bronze doors!
Built in both Baroque and Neo-Classical styles, make sure you take the lift to the top and admire the views over Milan… it is a true gem and not to be missed.
The Last Supper
To see a true work of art – make a visit to the church of Santa Maria della Grazie and see ‘The Last Supper’ by Leonardo da Vinci. Arguably the greatest painting of the Renaissance, it portrays the moment when Jesus reveals one of his disciples will betray him. (As you can imagine it is popular so ensure you reserve a timed, 15-minute slot to see it).
Should you be lucky enough to get your hands on a ticket… get yourself one of the 2,015 seats at ‘La Scala’ the famous Opera house and watch the unbelievable operatic performers in some of the best acoustic facilities in the world.
If Opera is not your thing, view the Pirelli tower, a majestic example of 1960s modernist Italian architecture, or perhaps take a visit to the San Siro – home of both AC Milan and Internazionale Football teams, or for a more romantic trip, head to the Castello Sforzesco, a grand medieval castle... Whatever you get up to on your city break in Milan, it is sure to amaze!
