Stylish Milan, Italy

“Fashion capital of Italy”

Even though Rome is the capital of Italy, Milan is the capital of fashion and chic culture. This elegant city known for it’s classic Gothic cathedral Doumo di Milano, the impressive shopping place Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and Castello Scorzesco will certainly not disappoint you. There is so much to see and do in Milan so I would advise you to spent at least 3 days in the city.

Here are some thoughts and ideas for your next trip to Milan.

  1. Doumo di Milano

The Piazza Duomo where is located the Duomo Cathedral, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the Palazzo Reale, Teatro alla Scala, La Rimanescenti store and all the magnificant buildings around it, represents the heart of historical Milano.

2. Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

Perhaps the best thing about Milan is shopping. There are plenty of options but one of most known and photographed shopping spots is Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, where haute couture takes center stage. This 150 year old building with an elite glass roof showcases the likes of Prada, Dior, Louis Vitton, Gucci and many more designer stores.

Make sure you leave enough space in your luggage, as you will certainly be unable to avoid the temptations that shopping here has to offer.

3. Castello Sforzesco

The Sforzesco Castle hosts several Museums and is an interesting historical monument with a fantastic tower.

In all, Milan is a great city to visit for the iconic landmarks, cultural history and neverending shopping options. Hope my pictures and travel tips inspired you to visit Milan!
