Top 10 things to do in Milan

Milan boasts one of the most cosmopolitan cultures in Italy - its rich artistic history laid the foundations upon which fashion and design could flourish. Here are some of the city's highlights, whether you're looking for art, history, or simply want to go home looking a little more stylish!

Santa Maria delle Grazie

We'd forgive you for thinking this church's appeal lay in its clash of Gothic and Renaissance styles, but it also just happens to be the home of Leonardo da Vinci's famous Last Supper!

The Last Supper

Fun fact: Da Vinci's genius may have been indisputable, but he lacked experience painting frescoes. The work began to deteriorate soon after completion, so go see it before it's too late!

Teatro alla Scala

Also simply known as La Scala, Milan's opera house has played host to some of the greatest singers and musicians of the past 250 years. Its world-beating reputation remains intact today!

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

Few of the city's other historic attractions are considered as high a credit card risk as the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II – one of the world's oldest and best shopping malls!

Milan Cathedral (Duomo)

Italy's largest church looms over Milan's main square, heavily adorned with ominous sculptures right up to the gilded bronze "Madonnina" on top of its main spire.

Sforza Castle

The Sforza Castle was one of the largest in Europe. Today it's home to important museums such as the Museum of Ancient Art and the Museum of Musical Instruments.

Duomo Square (Piazza del Duomo)

Stretching over 17,000 square meters, Milan's duomo square has room not only for the city's vast cathedral, but many other top attractions, like the Royal Palace.

Brera Picture Gallery (Pinacoteca di Brera)

Milan's Brera Picture Gallery boasts some of Italy's most significant paintings, with works by Raphael, Titian, and Caravaggio on display.

San Siro Stadium

Tour the grounds of AC Milan's famous San Siro stadium, which has hosted not only some of soccer's defining moments, but also musical greats from Bob Marley to Bob Dylan!

Navigli District

The historic Navigli district takes its name from the ancient canals that once connected the city. It's also home to some of the best restaurants for traditional Milanese cuisine!

Planning Your Milan Visit

When to go?

Milan is a year-round destination that doesn't really deal with peak seasons. Instead, it offers a wealth of events and exhibitions, so check the programs at its theaters and museums before you book your trip. If you're interested in Fashion Week, you have two to choose from! The autumn/winter collections are flaunted in February and March, and spring/summer in September and October.

How many days?

You could see most of Milan's key places of interest within a couple of days, but consider a long weekend if you want to shop or mellow out a little longer in its dynamic culture.

How to get around?

Driving in Milan can be a hair-raising experience! Fortunately it has an incredibly easy-to-use public transportation network. Tickets for its metro, bus, and tram routes must be bought prior to boarding. They must then be validated at the metro turnstiles or red boxes on board the buses and trams. The city also has a bike sharing scheme in place. More information can be found at

What People Are Saying About Milan

Very interesting experience. Would love to see more fo the back stage

It was a very pleasant experience. The guide gave her best during the tour and she tried to inform us about the most of pieces of information. I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately we couldn't see more of the interior of the Opear Hall, 'cause there was an ongoing show during our visit. The whole stuff was extremely polite, so this tour made my day on Saturday.

Great way to learn a bit about the city!

While my wife and I enjoyed the walking tour and are glad we took it, we do feel the cost was a bit high compared to other walking tours, with other companies, in other major cities that we have visited in Europe. That said, our guide, "Charles", was both personable and knowledgeable. The pace of walking was good and the information shared was interesting and pertinent. Adequate time was given at each site. The tour helped orient us to the city so we could explore it in depth on our own in the following days.

From our guide to viewing the Last Supper all went perfectly.

Our guide and the viewing of the Last Supper was a memorable morning never to be missed. Efficient and professional. Our guide brought the master piece come to life with her fine commentary. Thank you for making this event one of the highlights of our month long visit to Italy.

My teenage daughter and I loved the tour.

The guide was wonderful and my daughter and I loved the tour. We went right in and did not have to wait at all. Hope to do more tours with them whenever we travel overseas to Europe. Great deal!!!!
