Welcome to Milan

Known as a centre of fashion and finance, Milan is the country’s most stylish city.

Milan is famous for its wealth of historical and modern sights: the Duomo, the symbol of Milan, this grand cathedral towers over the city with its countless white marble spires, one of the biggest and grandest Gothic cathedrals in the world. La Scala, one of the world’s most famous opera houses. Not that special from the outside, but the main building’s interiors are simply breathtaking. The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, an ancient and glamorous arcaded shopping gallery, Italy’s oldest shopping mall. It houses many expensive shops and designer stores. Beautiful iron-and-glass roof!

The Brera art gallery, with some of the finest artistic works in Europe, the Pirelli tower, a majestic example of 1960s modernist Italian architecture. The Castello Sforzesco, a grand medieval castle, beautiful gardens, courtyards and towers – and the often-overlooked ‘final sculpture’ by Michaelangelo.

The UNESCO’s World Heritage Site Santa Maria alle Grazie Basilica, containing one of the world’s most famous paintings: Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper.

Milan is the centre of Italian fashion and interior design. International fashionistas, designers, supermodels and paparazzi descend upon Milan twice a year for its spring and autumn fairs. Many high-end designers still use the city’s trusted producers and it remains one of the best places in the world to shop.

The Bocconi University is at 10 minutes walk from the Navigli channels. Milan’s Navigli neighborhood is famed for the Naviglio Grande and Naviglio Pavese canals.

Navigli, one of the most romantic and beautiful parts of Milan. The name comes from the navigli, canals that once snaked through the area, connecting with rivers and lakes. Today, only three of those canals survive and of them Naviglio Grande is the most picturesque and rewarding.

Crossing the channel are iron pedestrian bridges, and nearby is the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie al Naviglio. The original church on this site dates back to the middle of the 16th century, but it was demolished in 1908. The current structure was consecrated a year later. Along the canal is Vicolo dei Lavandai, an alley where women used to come to wash laundry. One of the best times to be here, is in the early evening when the setting sun is reflected in the water.
During the summer, you can go on a boat tour of the canals.

With its great bars and boutiques, the Navigli is one of our favorite areas in Milan.
Not to mention one of the most historic: The neighborhood dates all the way back to 1179, when they were constructed to transport goods from the nearby lakes and which was used to transport the marble used to build the Duomo.

The smallest waterway is based on a design by Leonardo da Vinci.
