the town of fashion

Milan is known as the fashion capital, and one big reason is the famous “Milano Fashion Week.” This event happens twice a year and brings famous people from all over to the city, showing off bold and beautiful outfits. When you walk through the fashion district, especially along streets like Via Montenapoleone, you’ll see dazzling displays from top fashion brands in every window. It’s no surprise that the National Chamber of Fashion, which supports Italian fashion and organizes many events in the city, is based in Milan.

history and arts

The cathedral / Il duomo

The Duomo is a famous landmark in Milan, not just as the main church but also as the biggest in Italy and the third biggest in the world by size. It’s known for its tall spires and the golden Madonnina statue on top. When you visit, you can see the inside of the church with its art, including statues and paintings, explore the underground archaeological area, and go up to the roof for a great view.

Right next to it, you’ll find the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, which people call “Milan’s living room.” It’s a fancy shopping area with high-end shops and restaurants, made of two main hallways that meet under a big glass dome. This spot connects the Duomo square with La Scala Theatre square, where the famous opera house is.

Originally built to link Lake Maggiore, Lake Como, and the lower Ticino for trade, these areas are now the heart of Milan’s nightlife, buzzing with bars and restaurants perfect for a fun chat. From early evening drinks to dinner and late-night cocktails, especially on weekends, people of all ages come here to meet, mingle, and put aside their worries for a while.


The historic Brera Palace in Milan is a huge place that’s home to many important sites. It has the famous Brera Art Gallery, which is full of old and new art, and the Braidense National Library, where you can find lots of books. There’s also the Brera Observatory for stargazing, a beautiful Botanical Garden, the Lombard Institute of Science and Letters, and the Academy of Fine Arts where people learn to create art. In the middle of the palace’s courtyard, there’s a well-known statue of Napoleon made by the artist Antonio Canova, and the courtyard is surrounded by a big, two-story covered walkway.

Quartiere isola – piazza Gae aulenti

One of Milan’s most well-known spots today, this square is a popular location for commercials and events. The Isola district, known for being a place where people live, work, and shop, is famous for its towering skyscrapers. These include the Garibaldi Towers, the tree-covered Bosco Verticale complex, the Galfa Tower, the Pirelli skyscraper, and the UniCredit Tower. The UniCredit Tower is especially notable as it’s the tallest building in Italy, standing at 231 meters.
