Milan is the Italian capital of fashion, the undisputed model of elegance for Europe. The Lombard capital is an illustrious city for the attractiveness of its streets and ancient buildings, fervent with creativity in the artistic field, and a pole of undisputed importance in the commercial and financial sphere, especially as it is the seat of the Italian Stock Exchange.
The main airport serving the metropolitan area of Milan is the intercontinental airport of Milan-Malpensa, located between the municipalities of Somma Lombardo and Ferno in the province of Varese and about 49 km from the center of Milan. Then, the international airport of Milan-Linate, just 7 km from the center of the capital, and the international airport “Il Caravaggio” in the municipality of Orio al Serio, 5km from the center of Bergamo and 50 km from that of Milan.
The fashion district, the home of elegance
The Quadrilatero Della Moda includes some of the most famous and fascinating streets in Milan, from via Montenapoleone, internationally recognized at the same level as the Champs Elysées in Paris, up to Corso Venezia. The path of each of these streets is marked by the presence of luxury boutiques and inimitable class ateliers. Among the refined shops are gorgeous historic buildings such as Palazzo Morando, which houses the famous costume and fashion museum.
The historic center, between architecture and high fashion
The historic center is the natural home of the city’s architectural beauties. The Vittorio Emanuele II shopping gallery is one of the oldest in the world, the glass dome that covers it entirely and the floors decorated with splendid mosaics create a unique atmosphere to host the windows of high fashion brands such as Prada and Gucci. From the gallery, you can directly reach Piazza del Duomo, the heart of Milan. In the center of the area, the equestrian monument to Vittorio Emanuele II overlooks the majestic Gothic-style facade of the Cathedral, whose spiers form the unmistakable architectural profile that has become a symbol of the city. Going back through the gallery, on the other hand, it is possible to reach the neoclassical-style theater of La Scala. A short distance away, the imposing Arch of Peace introduces the vast expanse of greenery of Sempione park, whose panorama is dominated by the brick structure of the Sforzesco Castle, dating back to the fifteenth century. The street adjacent to the park, behind the castle, allows you to reach the basilica of Santa Maria Delle Grazie, where the fresco of the Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci is kept.
Brera, the art district
