How to enjoy Milan

Elegant and sophisticated, the power house behind Italian fashion, Milan’s a city that means business

  • The Last Supper is the reason many come to Milan, so naturally the lines are huge and admission is dicey: beg your concierge for help
  • La Scala is the benchmark of Italian opera and a must do if at all possible. Hint: You can never be overdressed at La Scala
  • The Milano Centrale railway station is an enormous, architecturally interesting stop even when you don’t need its services

In the mood for lazy strolls with stops to smell the roses? Try Venice. Milan is a working town, Italian style. This is banking and fashion central, and power players are focused on closing deals and making money. Milan is an exciting city, fueled by lots of espresso and jammed with zooming traffic. It’s hard for tourists to just stand around and gawk, though ironically, there’s lots to gawk at.

Milan is a fashion hub on par with Paris and is home to Italian couturier flagship stores like Versace, Armani and Missoni. The best place to take in this smorgasbord is the Golden Quadrilateral near the Duomo. Made up of Via Montenapoleone, Della Spiga, Via Borgospesso and Via Sant’Andrea, the Quadrilateral is a high-priced, high-fashion extravaganza.

Money, couture, famous artwork, opera and soccer—Milan is a single destination that represents everything Italians hold dear. Chic even by Italian standards, this city demands that you up your style game.
