Top 10 things to do in Milan
Milan boasts one of the most cosmopolitan cultures in Italy - its rich artistic history laid the foundations upon which fashion and design could flourish. Here are some of the city's highlights, whether you're looking for art, history, or simply want to go home looking a little more stylish!
2. The Last Supper
Fun fact: Da Vinci's genius may have been indisputable, but he lacked experience painting frescoes. The work began to deteriorate soon after completion, so go see it before it's too late!
10. Navigli District
The historic Navigli district takes its name from the ancient canals that once connected the city. It's also home to some of the best restaurants for traditional Milanese cuisine!

Planning Your Visit
When to go?
Milan is a year-round destination that doesn't really deal with peak seasons. Instead, it offers a wealth of events and exhibitions, so check the programs at its theaters and museums before you book your trip. If you're interested in Fashion Week, you have two to choose from! The autumn/winter collections are flaunted in February and March, and spring/summer in September and October.
How many days?
You could see most of Milan's key places of interest within a couple of days, but consider a long weekend if you want to shop or mellow out a little longer in its dynamic culture.
How to get around?
Driving in Milan can be a hair-raising experience! Fortunately it has an incredibly easy-to-use public transportation network. Tickets for its metro, bus, and tram routes must be bought prior to boarding. They must then be validated at the metro turnstiles or red boxes on board the buses and trams. The city also has a bike sharing scheme in place. More information can be found at bikemi.com.

What people are saying about Milan
Amazing trip, really worth the price! Our guide was amazing and kind, he didn't have enough radios for the six of us (we didn't mind), so insisted on buying us gelato at Bellagio. He explained everything amazingly and we loved him. The sights were stunning, well organized and the free time pleasing. I can't say enough how much I recommend this tour. Though don't forget to book it on a sunny day!
Really an exceptional view. The condition of the duomo is impeccable. Recommend stairs for anyone in wonderful shape for summer visits and a portable fan and water for hydration. I never seen such a massive cathedral in my life.
I believe my tour guides name was Laura. She was absolutely amazing and kind and so informative. I had the best time. Would definitely do this again if I had a tour guide like her!
