Things To Do In Milan

Milan might as well be CityXplora's international capital of culture and sightseeing in 2015, what with the presence of the World Expo and its complimentary influence on the city's traditional attractions. Never mind a normal year, you definitely won't be at a loss for things to see and do in the capital of Lombardy during this exciting period. Check the link on the bottom right of the page for more info and how to book Expo Milano 2015.

There's no better place for us to start in central Milan than Piazza Castello. This beautiful public space is where you'll encounter the initial departures points on the City Sightseeing Milan tour, Sforza Castle and the towering Expo Gates. 'Heart of the City' was never a more relevant description of the central plaza. Sforzesco houses some of Milan's most important art museums, while the Expo Gates provide a thematic link to the exciting atmosphere of the Expo Grounds- a complex which lies on the outskirts.

By entering Sforza Castle you'll be able access 7 of Milan's finest civic museums. These institutions collectively cover many aspects of the city's heritage, such as its: history, art, culture and politics. In the Pinacoteca del Castello Sforzesco you'll find a 230-strong collection of Renaissance artworks, some of which are attributed to famous names including Andrea Mantegna and Titian. Be sure to check out Michelangelo's unfinished 'Rondanini Pietà' at the Museum of Ancient Art. In addition to this iconic sculpture the Ancient Art wing also contains a sprawling armoury and tapestry room.

A trip to Milan wouldn't be complete with an exploration of its renowned fashion scene. Wander through the vast vaulted arcades of Galleria Vittorio Emanuele to enjoy a riveting fusion of spectacular architecture and Italy's top designer brands. If you feel like forking out a pretty penny there's Armani, Versace, Louis Vuitton and even the world's first Prada store. Whether you're serious about buying or just an eager window shopper you also can't miss the high-end Via Montenapoleone fashion district. Popularly referred to as the 'Golden Rectangle' this place epitomises glitz and exclusivity. Venture amongst the boutiques of your own free will or as a part of a guided tour.

A great place to take a walk in Milan besides Parco Sempione is the Monumental Cemetery. This gigantic necropolis is like planet Earth's entire architectural landscape in microcosm. There's hundreds of sculptures depicting scenes from various historical masterpieces as well as gilded tombs/monuments modelled after everything from Trajan's Column to the Nubian pyramids.
