Milan is famous for its high fashion and the typical Italian pizza but even Tyra Banks and top Gordon Ramsey play second fiddle to the things you can’t miss while in Milan. The common harsh description of Milan is that it acts as the economical capital of Italy, but that doesn’t seem to do it much justice because that is not enough to describe this sophisticated and stylish city.

From shopping hotspots to historical buildings, there is something to interest everyone while in Milan.

 

The Milan Cathedral

A very popular tourist attraction located in the city’s main square is one of the largest buildings of its kind in the world. You don’t have to be a religious to appreciate its beauty, and don’t worry about the crowds – it has a capacity to hold 40, 000! This product of gothic architecture is nothing short of stunning and the beauty is further magnified by the presence of the major steeple and a perfect view of the city and the Alps. And just so you know; it is absolutely free. Bargain!

 

The Castello Sforzesco

Built back in the 14th,  you’ll feel like royalty for the day in this castle that was once residence of the ruling family of Milan. Named after a powerful figure in the 1400s, this marvel of history stands alongside the cathedral; creating a 2 in I jaw dropping sight. Though it has had its fair share of damage and renovations, it still remains one of the most loved monuments in Italy.

The Pinacoteca di Brera

Italy is known for its famous arts and paintings and if you are hoping to catch a glimpse of some of the best, this is the place to be. Not only is it the biggest gallery in the city, it also houses a collection of the most valuable Italian artwork. Temporary exhibitions are also held regularly at the gallery so pop in while there and you might be in luck.

Teatro all scalla

If you are an opera fanatic, look no further because you have found the world renowned opera theatre. Built between 1775 and 1778 it has a 780 square meters stage and it is the largest in Europe. Next to the theatre you will find the Museo Teatrale alla Scala if you are into theatrical deco and costumes.

The Last Supper

This famous work of Leonardo da Vinci (famous and controversial in equal measure) is found in the Santa Maria delle grazie. This recently rediscovered fresco was painted on the wall between 1494 and 1498.the masterpiece is unique in the sense that the colors were applied on dry wall. Too bad the painting may soon disappear due to the dampness. Make sure you see it before it does.
