Addict to fashion? Milan is the drug... and much more!

Milan, ItalyThere are some cities in Italy that don’t need any introduction. One of these is Milan, the fourth gadders destination that we are meeting on our travel through italian beauties. But what is needed is that you discover its multiple faces hidden behind the mask of sad and cloudy business capital.

Tourists choose it for fashion, opera, the cathedral, the castle and the fresco of the Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci, but Milan is mainly the Italian capital of business and finance. The shops are so many, the restaurants delicious and the nightlife very lively.
The main historic attractions are all located nearby the two most famous monuments of the city: the imposing Duomo, the fourth largest church in Europe and the first in Italy, a magnificent example of Gothic architecture, and the Castello Sforzesco, behind which extends the green area of the park Sempione, with the Torre Branca inside it and the Arch of Peace at its end.
Milan, Italy

Between the two symbols of the city there are the pedestrian streets of Via Mercanti and Via Dante, Piazza Affari, the Stock Exchange, with its palace of Midnight and the unbelievable contemporary art sculpture in front of it, and Largo Cairoli which houses the statue of Giuseppe Garibaldi. On the Piazza del Duomo also opens the world's most beautiful shopping arcade, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. Go through resisting the temptation to get into a boutique and you will find the most revered shrine of Italian opera: La Scala theater. In the opposite direction, there is the fashion district, where you can admire the windows of the studios of the world’s most important fashion brands.
Still in Piazza Duomo there is the Royal Palace, that once was home of the lords of Milan, and now home to several art exhibitions, while in the Brera district there is the homonymous Pinacoteca, but the most famous painting is the Last Supper, by Leonardo da Vinci, in the refectory of the convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie. Finally, do not miss the unique Church of San Satiro and the night charm of Navigli, ancient canals along which streets are lined with bars and restaurants.
