Milan

Milan is the second biggest town in Italy, the most economically developed and the capital of business (there’s the Italian Stock Exchange) fashion and design. Here you can meet people from all around the world that crowd restaurants, discotheques, cinemas, bars and cafes.

Built in the IV century B.C. by Celtic tribes and later conquered by the Roman empire, and then the Barbars, the Sforza, the Spanish, the French and the Austrian empire arriving until the late XIX century when Milan was added to the Italian Reign and started to grow, particularly from an economical and industrial point of view. Unfairly considered of minor importance in the historical and artistic field, Milan is the city where ancient times meet the modern age. Its contemporary soul is balanced by some really famous works of art and architecture, such as Milan Cathedral (third largest in the world), Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper, the Brera Art Gallery, the Sforza's Castle and Sant’Ambrogio. During the day you can visit artistic places or simply walk around the shops in the “fashion district” where al the big names have their boutiques. During the evening you can enjoy the traditional “aperitivo” in one of the hundreds bars and cafés in the Navigli, an area with a large concentration of artists and formerly the harbour of Milan where the canal still flows today. Milan is also a strategic position to reach the Alps in winter and Liguria or the "Cote d'Azur", France in summer.
