Tourist information

 

Located in the heart of Northern Italy, Milan is Italy’s economic centre; its origin dates back to the IV century BC. Throughout its history, Milan was under the rule of different countries and its heterogenic culture comprises elements from Austria, Spain and France, affecting architecture, language and cuisine.

Among Milan’s most famous landmarks are the Duomo di Milano, Teatro alla Scala, Castello Sforzesco, ‘The Last Supper’ by Leonardo da Vinci and Bosco Verticale, which was declared in 2015 the “Best Tall Building Worldwide”. Milan is also home of some of the world’s most famous fashion brands such as Valentino, Gucci, Versace, Prada, Armani and Dolce & Gabbana.

A must try in Milan’s local restaurants are the Cotoletta alla Milanese (the original Wiener Schnitzel) and Risotto alla Milanese (risotto with saffron and cross-cut veal shanks).
