An historic heart with a futuristic view
Milano boasts a unique artistic heritage, of which Da Vinci’s Last Supper is the best-known masterpiece. Over 2.400 years of history have bestowed a rich inheritance on the city, with archaeological remains, Roman basilicas, Paleochristian mosaics, gothic cathedrals, Art Nouveau monuments and globally renowned museums preserving sculptures by Michelangelo and canvasses by Picasso.
And don’t worry if you don’t have much time, since the best news is that Milan offers an incredible number of attractions concentrated into the small historic centre. All these sites can be reached on foot passing through romantic cobbled streets.
From the Celtic origins to the 20th century: a journey in stages through the city’s most important historical periods and landmarks. Between invasions and battles, lordships and great artists, Milan has evolved and expanded its horizons to become, today, an internationally-renowned economic centre, the capital of Italian fashion and design.
