Most people think of Rome when planning a visit to Italy. It's a shame, because Milan has so much to offer. Unlike Rome, Milan is a compact city. All major attractions can be found in the centre of the city. With attractions such as Milan Cathedral (Duomo Santa Maria Nascente), Leonardo da Vinci's 'Last Supper' and Teatro alle Scala (La Scala), Milan features many interesting places in the field of culture, history and art. In the vibrant district of Brera you really get a taste of typical Italian atmosphere, the perfect place to immerse yourself in the local life. Visit authentic restaurants, nice bars, small boutiques and experience the Italian coffee culture. Many tourists come to Milan for shopping, for which the 19th century shopping gallery Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II should be at the top of your list. The building alone is more than impressive enough to visit. These are the top sights in Milan.
