Nestled in the plains of Lombardy, Milan is one of the largest cities in Italy. Its cultural foundations are built on fashion and design, and its urban landscape of gothic church spires and dome-topped plazas reflect Milan’s propensity for artistic grandeur. Because of the intense focus on the city’s amazing fashion scene, Milan often gets the reputation of being too commercial when compared to Rome and Venice, however the city is quickly shedding this image as they highlight the amazing architecture and cultural aspects found here. One of the world’s largest churches, the Duomo is by far the most impressive piece of architecture in Milan. The Duomo stands imposingly in the centre of the Milan with hundreds of spires and statues, gothic and gorgeous and a very popular tourist attraction. Highly recommended is a visit to the rooftop, which allows tourists to examine the intricate sculptures and architectural design of the cathedral, as well as a great view of Milan. Another highly popular attraction in Milan is the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, which houses Leonardo da Vinci’s famous painting, ‘The Last Supper.’ Tickets need to be booked by phone and can be reserved up to 6 months in advance. Fans of Leonardo da Vinci must also visit the Biblioteca Ambrosiana, which holds many of his drawings and notebooks, along with thousands of other manuscripts, books and drawings by famous Europeans. Finally, a trip to Milan is not complete without visiting Via della Spiga, a strip dedicated to high-end designer fashions.
