What you must see in Milan

The beauty and grandeur of the Duomo in Milan. Situated in its square, it has always been the symbol of the city which every person in the world knows and wants to visit.

But in addition to this beautiful Gothic cathedral, there is much more to visit. The elegance of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele with its cafes and exclusive shops, La Scala Theatre and Opera House, another Milanese symbol, or the Sforzesco Castle. The civic arena in Sempione Park or even Foro Bonaparte.

Milan will fill your days with beauty, and if this is not enough, you can relax by shopping in the fashion district or walking around the beautiful neighbourhood of Brera or the futuristic Porta Nuova district.

The Lombard culinary art

The cuisine is considered among the excellences of the “Bel Paese”. The Italian culinary strength lies in the vastness of recipes and preparations, and this variety is due to large differences in habits and produce of the numerous territories.

The typical cuisine of the region is strongly linked to the agricultural traditions of Lombardy, where rice cultivation and livestock have been practised for centuries.

Not surprisingly, the best-known traditional dishes are: Risotto with saffron and ossibuchi. Apart from these, in the numerous listed city restaurants you can enjoy the finest seafood, always fresh thanks to the efficient fish market.

Typical of Milan is also a cake called Panettone, which has ancient origins and is eaten at Christmas time.

Sightseeing around Milan

Lombardy is a rich and vast territory. High mountains, lakes and vast plains are the background to beautiful towns and villages. We highly recommend you to visit beautiful Lake Como, with its elegant location and stunning scenery. Not to be missed is the upper town of Bergamo with its narrow streets, the baptistery and the view from its walls, but if what you seek is relaxation, you should definitely enjoy a coffee within the city walls of Sirmione or have a walk in lively Desenzano del Garda.
