Things to do here

The huge Gothic cathedral, the Duomo, lies in the heart of the city and is emblematic of the love of grand design that still drives Milanos today. Art, luxury shopping, one of Europe's biggest trade-fair complexes, a dynamic nightlife, the world renowned opera at La Scala, two major Serie A football teams and endless opportunities to eat the best regional and Italian food make Milan a great place to visit. The city is also an excellent starting point for the Alpine regions and Venice to the north and Genoa and the Mediterranean coast to the south.

To Eat

  1. At Trattoria degli Orti - in traditional style - dishes come along without you ordering. Seasonal anchovy-stuffed zucchini flowers, homemade ravioli and fried octopus are just some of menu items. Address: Via Monviso 13 Phone: + 390 2 331 01 800
  2. Il Marchesino Gualtiero Marchesi is one of Italy’s most beloved chefs. With a cooking school and more informal café, Il Marchesino  is just one element of the chef’s food empire. The restaurant offers deceptively simple food in a modern dining room in the La Scala opera house.

To Stay

  1. Hotel Straf- this ultra-designer hotel is close to the Duomo. Cement, black stone and scratched glass are common design features. There's also a gym for guests.
  2. Hotel Gran Duca Di York - this palazzo is near the Duomo and was once an academic residence. It has 33 small rooms (some with balconies), comfortable beds and marble bathrooms.

Museo del Novecento Cultural

Overlooking Piazza del Duomo, with fabulous views of the cathedral, is the Arengario, from where Mussolini would make speeches from its balconies. Now it houses Milan's museum of 20th-century art. The collection includes works by Boccioni, de Chirico and Marinetti.

Discover Genoa/Cinque Terre Scenic Tours

Discover Genoa and/or the sublime Cinque Terre coastal region on a day trip from Milan. Genoa is perched precariously over its famous port but it is a city of contrasts and rich passions and with a gritty edge from its long role as a maritime giant. The Cinque Terre is renowned for its terraced landscapes and five cliff-side villages - Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. Trains from Milan’s central station leave regularly through the day for Genoa and points along the coast.
