Milan flourished under the Roman Empire and the Renaissance, leaving a lasting impression on the city’s culture and architecture. Built in the 15th century, Sforzesco Castle played a formative role in Milan’s history, symbolising power for the leaders that ruled here. The interior was lavishly decorated during the Renaissance, with beautiful frescos by Leonardo da Vinci and others.
The Duomo di Milano is one of the largest churches in the world and a fine example of Gothic architecture. Taking centuries to complete, construction on the building began in 1386 with the final touches added in 1965. The church is decorated with 3159 statues, including one of the Virgin Mary, made from copper, that’s situated on the tallest spire.
A Night at the Opera
La Scala is a world famous opera house, opened in 1778. It’s worth a visit just to see the luxurious interior with its large mirrors, fluted columns, and red velvet. The chandelier in the auditorium consists of 365 lamps and is made from Bohemian crystal.
Museums and Galleries
The Pinocoteca di Brera is a public gallery that houses an impressive collection of Italian paintings, such as Piero della Francesca's Virgin and Child with Saints, and Caravaggio's Supper at Emmaus. It also has an old library, free to visit, that wouldn’t look out of place in a Harry Potter film.
A must-visit for modern art fans is the Museo del Novecento, with its fantastic collection, including the work of famous Italian sculptor Arturo Martini and a temporary exhibit of silkscreen prints by Andy Warhol. There’s also a restaurant on the top floor, the Giacomo Arengario, if you’re hungry after all this and haven’t yet checked into your hotel in Milan.
Milan has two main football teams, Inter Milan and AC Milan. The locals are extremely proud of both, with AC Milan having 18 UEFA and FIFA titles, and Inter Milan winning three UEFA cups.
