About this location

The Lombardy region


There are many different aspects that make Milan a unique, vital centre, and these include, and should not be overlooked, a great many opportunities for entertainment and free time, offered both by day and by night. Another important reason why Milan has become such an important international centre of interest, is, without doubt, fashion. Simply take a walk through the quadrilatero della moda(a high-class shopping district in the centre of Milan, enclosed by Via Montenapoleone, Via Manzoni, Via della Spiga and Corso Venezia) and note the incredible number of Italian and foreign tourists entering and leaving the boutiques and retail outlets of the world's most famous fashion houses.

One of the “liveliest” areas of the city during the hot summer nights, and at other times, runs along the shores of the Navigli (canals), where bars and restaurants fight for space. Another, equally fascinating area takes the “road of art”, Via Brera, which uses Via Verdi to connect Piazza della Scala to the Accademia di Belle Arti (Fine Arts Academy) of Brera. Here, day and night seem to merge as one, amidst artists, street stands and bars.


Considered one of the most important examples of florid gothic architecture, construction began on the Duomo (cathedral) in 1386 on the initiative of Gian Galeazzo Visconti, to a grand design. Masterful work continued through the centuries, requiring the creation of the Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo (Venerable Cathedral Factory) and the dedicated use of a rather precious marble quarry: the pinky-white marble vein of Bassa Valdossola, in Candoglia.

Il DuomoWorks were supervised by several architects: Solari, Amadeo, Pellegrini and Amati to name a few. Maintenance was constant, particularly in order to preserve the cathedral's 135 spires and 2245 statues. Inside the cathedral, there are five solemn naves with colossal pillars that rise up in the semi-darkness, whilst the large polygonal apse is the most genuinely gothic part to be admired. Today, a lift grants access to the cathedral terraces, from which in addition to an extraordinary view over the city, you can also admire the close-knit network of spires and the Madonna on the highest spire of all (108.5 metres).

To the right of the cathedral stands Palazzo Reale, previously home to the Visconti family and today a perfect exhibition hall, along with the cathedral museum, which preserves the original wooden models of the cathedral, dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries. To the left of the cathedral, the porticoes of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele run outwards, making this famous gallery the hub of city shopping, boasting important nineteenth century iron and glass architecture, and the true meeting place for Milan's people, joining Piazza del Duomo to Piazza della Scala.

Teatro alla Scala

Teatro alla ScalaLa Scala theatre, a true symbol of the city, is the work of architect Giuseppe Piermarini and was built to the order of Maria Teresa of Austria and opened on 3rd August 1778. Its sober, neoclassic facade hides an extraordinary hall featuring perfect acoustics and sumptuous interior furnishings. Partially destroyed by the 1943 bombings, the Scala was the city's first great monument to be rebuilt, exactly as it had been. On the evening of 11th May 1946, the Scala was officially re-opened to the public with the great symphony concert conducted by Toscanini. The hall is a triumph of gold-plated stucco work and friezes. It is horseshoe-shaped with four rows of stages and two galleries, on which the beautiful Bohemian lamp can be admired, with 365 bulbs – one for each day of the year. More than 800 actors can be on stage at any one time, and there are a total of 2800 seats available in the theatre. A true temple of lyrics, it has always been the privileged home to Italian musical theatre, featuring the premiers of works of great prestige by composers such as Bellini, Boito, Donizetti, Giordano, Ponchielli, Puccini, Rossini and Verdi. From January 2002 to December 2004, the Scala underwent the most extensive restoration works on a historical building, including the modernisation of the stage, since the end of the Second World War. This restoration brought to light some of the original features, such as the Venetian-style seminato Veneziano marble flooring of the corridors, the terracotta on the stages and the marmorino plaster on the corridor walls. The original decor of some of the historic stages was recovered, like the Viceroy Barcaccia stage, revealing the light blue paintings dating back to the Piermarini era. A new flooring was created, consisting of several layers of different materials, the last of which in oak parquet, designed by a world-famous expert in acoustics, physician Higini Arau, to improve the theatre's acoustics.

Il Castello Sforzesco (the Sforza Castle)

Constructed for defence in 1368, to the order of Galeazzo Visconti, the Castello Sforzesco has played different roles over the centuries. It was extended by Gian Galeazzo Visconti towards the late 14th century, but only Filippo Maria took up permanent residence there, using it as a princely home. In 1450, Francesco Sforza, new lord of Milan, ordered its reconstruction, making it back into a fortress, but then, once his power had been consolidated, enhanced its beauty. Between the late 1400s and the early 1500s, Ludovico il Moro made it into one of the most impressive courts of renaissance Italy, and a pole attracting the time's most important artists, including Leonardo and Bramante. Today home to an important museum, the castle also houses the Biblioteca Trivulziana, a library preserving important art collections including Pietà Rondanini, Michelangelo's extreme, incomplete work. Behind the castle, the park opens up in the background, onto which the Arco della Pace archway faces.

The churches

The city boasts a great many churches. Some of the most representative include San Satiro, right in the centre, reconstructed by Bramante, and San Simpliciano, one of the oldest Milan basilicas, dating back to the 5th century.

Santa Maria delle GrazieThe beautiful Santa Maria delle Grazie is famous because it houses Da Vinci's Last Supper in the Dominican convent. Dedicated to the city's patron saint, the Basilica di S. Ambrogio is one of the most important examples of Romanesque, Lombardy churches, with the solemn atrium that precedes the gabled façade, which preserves the golden altar within, work of 19th century goldsmiths. The Basilica di San Lorenzo, the most important evidence seen today of Roman and early Christian Milan, and Sant'Eustorgio, insignia Renaissance church with the famous Portinari chapel, are very interesting indeed.


is a land filled with waterways, rivers and canals that crisscross the territory in a dense network. The river Adda to the east and the river Ticino offer highly picturesque views, from certain vantage points.

The Navigli – the artificial navigable canals built in the early Middle Ages – form a unique integrated system which at one time linked Milan northwards with Lake Maggiore and Switzerland and southwards with the Po River.

The most spectacular waterway is the one between Trezzo and Cassano: here the river runs between two high banks, where monuments such as the Trezzo Castle are located. This area was once an elegant holiday destination as evidenced by spectacular villas such as Villa Borromeo in Cassano.

Along the river are interesting industrial archaeology complexes such the Taccani hydroelectric power station in Trezzo. The Naviglio Martesana canal, which runs from the river Adda as far as Milan, takes in interesting towns such as Cassano and Vaprio.

The well-known Naviglio Grande takes its water from the river Ticino; the most interesting places are Abbiategrasso, Cassinetta di Lugagnano, Robecco sul Naviglio. Abbiategrasso preserves an artistic heritage of great value that includes the Church of Santa Maria Nuova, the elegant buildings of the old town and Visconti Castle. The vacation spots of the great Milanese families are still visible in Cassinetta and Robecco, but visits are not possible as they are private residences.

The Circuito delle Abbazie (abbey circuit) is a very appealing itinerary: it includes monasteries built in south Milan from 1100 onwards. They belonged to different orders, the Cistercian and the Umiliati orders, which set out to renew the way the Church operated, integrating prayer with productive works especially in farming. Mirasole Abbey is of great interest, founded by the Umiliati order, as is the Abbey of Viboldone and the more famous Abbeys of Chiaravalle and Morimondo.

The signs of the past are also still visible in the historic centre of Melegnano, particularly the Medici Castle, one of the most important Lombard monuments of the late Middle Ages, rich in frescoes of considerable iconographic value.

North of Milan towards Saronno, we arrive at Castellazzo di Bollate, also known as Villa Arconati, where in the warm July evenings you can attend wonderful concerts by artists of international renown. Here we are at the gates of Groane Park, a protected zone with over 3,400 hectares of forests. The beautiful natural offerings of the park go hand in hand with the fine aristocratic villas which you will encounter in this part of the plain traversed by the Villoresi Canal.

For culinary enthusiasts, the gourmet food and wine tradition of Milan has ancient origins. The typical Milanese cuisine offers simple and tasty dishes, often with basic ingredients: from the cutletto the risotto alla Milanese, from the cassouela to polenta, from the zabaione custard dessert to the pere martine giulebbate pear dessert. Do not miss the DOC wines produced in San Colombano. Also not to be missed is the authentic and quintessentially Milanese cake: the panettone.

Visiting Milan means becoming immersed in its lifestyle. The shopping capital, fashion victims will here truly find something to get their teeth into. Let yourself go to the mundane pleasures offered by the city. Typical Milan appointments include an aperitif, when the countless bars, wine bars and pubs, particularly in the centre, become buffets, flourishing with finger sandwiches, rolls, crisps, dried fruit, focaccia and quiches are tended by able barmen preparing traditional and innovative cocktails.


If you are in Milan, you simply cannot miss out on a sumptuous dinner in one of the restaurants still today serving up Meneghina cuisine, and treat yourself to a classic Risotto alla Milanese with plenty of saffron. Second courses par excellence include ossobuco, cotoletta and casoeula, a decidedly winter dish prepared with pig's trotters, rind, salami, ribs and Savoy cabbage, all cooked together and served piping hot accompanied by yellow polenta. Sweets include the famous panettone, the Italian Christmas cake served with a special custard made from mascarpone, the Tortelli di Carnevale, round doughnuts prepared either plain or filled with confectioner's custard or chocolate, the Pan de mej, large biscuits made from corn flour, and Rossumada created from egg, sugar and Marsala wine.
