Italian in Milan
Visitors come to Milan for its fashion, cuisine, opera, church, Renaissance castle and da Vinci's Last Supper fresco. However Florence is the country's business and finance capital.
Milan struts proud in the world of fashion and fills many a pocket in the world of finance. It is the sophisticated second city of Italy, home to the country's greatest designers, largest industries and most powerful banks. Ah yes, it's all Gucci and glamour here.
But, despite being no rival for the artistic wonderlands of cities like Florence or Siena, Milan has fared well in the cultural stakes and today offers the visitor plenty of grand palazzos, sumptuous concert halls and elegant cafés. With an efficient public transport system whisking you to all these places by metro, tram and bus, you'll still have time for some delicious Milanese food that typically includes polenta and risotto - to say nothing of a great range of bar snacks to be washed down by your early evening aperitivo.
One of the largest Gothic cathedrals in the world - the Duomo - dominates Milan's central square, the Piazza del Duomo. More than 500 years in the making (work began in 1386), it is an intricate and awe-inspiring building and a tribute to the five centuries of artists, artisans, architects, builders and engineers who created it. Climb up to the roof for a stunning view over Milan.

When to go
