Come to Milan

Join us in Milan, the second largest Italian city, and the main industrial, commercial and financial centre of the country, a major world fashion and design capital. Dynamic, creative and innovative, Milan is also a historical and cultural centre: home of the Duomo cathedral, a masterpiece of Gothic architecture, the castle, La Scala Opera House, and Leonardi Da Vinci’s Last Supper. Find out more about what to see and do in Milan on www.turismo.milano.it.
