Milan is a city where both past and present coexist alongside each other, as can be seen in the Arengario building which faces the gothic Cathedral. It was once known as the city of water on account of the rivers and waterways by which it was once crossed and it even had its own trading port. Nowadays it is possible to navigate some of the canals and explore picturesque itineraries and some lesser known locations. Are you searching for some good fortune? Go to the Victor Emanuel Gallery and look among the mosaics for the coat of arms depicting a bull. Tradition has it that if you step on the bull and spin around on it, the bull will bring good fortune.
During your visit to Milan don’t miss out on a walk along the Navigli - the city’s canals, shopping in the famous fashion district, or a walk in the city centre to take in the beauty of the Cathedral and the vastness of its square, close to the old Royal Palace and the Victor Emanuel II Gallery. The Sempione Park, the lungs of the city, is where you can relax or take part in some of its many recreational activities. If, however, you want to experience the older side of Milan, you can follow the route of Roman Milan that will lead you to discover the city's preserved archaeological sites.
Milan is a city to suit all tastes. Art lovers cannot miss out on a visit to the famous Pinacoteca di Brera (Brera Art Gallery), the prestigious collection of the Museo del Novecento (Museum of the 20th century) or the modern Triennale, a point of reference when it comes to exhibitions of art and design. Piazza Duomo is within walking distance of the Sforzesco Castle, a magnificent historical residence and awesome defensive stronghold. Something else also not to be missed is the Basilica of Santa Maria delle Grazie, where it is possible to admire Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘Last Supper’: The artist’s Cenacle remains one of the world’s most visited places of interest.
Don’t miss out on Milan’s traditional celebrations! Start the year on 6 January with the procession of the Three Wise Men. Celebrate the Ambrosian Carnival: with floats, colourful costumes and traditional masques, it continues until the Saturday after Shrove Tuesday! In April the city's main event is the Flower Fair, where florists exhibit their floral compositions along the Naviglio Grande. If you happen to be in Milan on 7 December, don’t miss out the celebrations for the city’s patron: Saint Ambrose. Allow yourself to be overwhelmed by the atmosphere of the great market-fair of the Oh Bej! Oh Bej! (Milanese slang for ‘so nice’) with artisan products, gastronomic stands and Christmas gifts.
