WHY TO VISIT MILAN
Milan is commonly known as the economic capital of Italy, a definition that seems to point out that there is a lot of money circulating but little to see there. In Milan apart from the well-known Piazza Duomo, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and Castello Sforzesco, symbols of ancient Milan's riches, there are many things to do and see.
There is the Milan of Leonardo Da Vinci, who put his architect's genius at work to make navigable the Navigli canals renewed and trendy for the after-hours. Leonardo has donated to Milan one of his greatest masterpieces: the Cenacolo, painted in the refectory of Convento of Santa Maria delle Grazie. Then there is the international Milan, one that attracts wealth people from all over the world: the one of the skyscrapers or that of San Babila with the beautiful neo-Romanesque church, but above all with the fashion streets (called “quadrilateral of the fashion”), the showcases of big brands, models and limited-edition cars parked. In short, the things to do and see in this city are may, to which must be added the charm of a great European metropolis and an unfairly underrated cuisine compared to Rome, Naples or Florence.
