Things to do
Milan Cathedral, also known as the Duomo, is the world’s second largest Catholic cathedral and one of Milan’s most famous sights. Built in 1835, it has an elaborate and beautiful white facade. You can even walk on its rooftop among the spires and statues. In its dark interior you’ll find fascinating statues, sculptures and artworks.
Fancy a night out at the opera? La Scala (Teatro Alla Scala) is a massive theatre where most of Italy’s famous opera performers have taken to the stage, including Antonio Salieri. With a large chandelier and a fancy red and gold interior, the theatre has almost 3,000 seats. Book one and you can sit back and watch opera, ballet, classical recitals and other performances.
And you’re not too far from Milan’s other gems like Sforza Castle and Santa Maria delle Grazie church, where you can see Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘The Last Supper’.
Shopping and dining
Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is one of the world’s oldest shopping malls, and one of its most spectacular. A five-storey arcade decorated with statues and mosaics and topped off with a glass dome, it’s full of luxury shopping options and big-name brands.
The Milan historical centre is rich in cafes and restaurants serving succulent Italian meals, with plenty for fish and pasta lovers to enjoy.
