About Milan:

The huge Gothic cathedral, the Duomo, lies in the heart of the city and is emblematic of the love of grand design that still drives Milanos today. Art, luxury shopping, one of Europe's biggest trade-fair complexes, a dynamic nightlife, the world renowned opera at La Scala, two major Serie A football teams and endless opportunities to eat the best regional and Italian food make Milan a great place to visit. The city is also an excellent starting point for the Alpine regions and Venice to the north and Genoa and the Mediterranean coast to the south.

Things to do:

Museo del Novecento Cultural

Overlooking Piazza del Duomo, with fabulous views of the cathedral, is the Arengario, from where Mussolini would make speeches from its balconies. Now it houses Milan's museum of 20th-century art. The collection includes works by Boccioni, de Chirico and Marinetti. 

Duomo Cultural

Milan's Gothic cathedral took 600 years to complete. Today, Milanos remain intensely proud of their 'Duomo', considered to be one of the finest in Italy.
