Milan

4.1
Fashion Capital of World
In many ways the most modern of Italian cities, Milan is a busy, elegant metropolis with an impressive list of grand palaces, fine churches, and important museums. Unlike most European cities with their highly-visible tourist sites, Milan requires a bit more patience and exploration. Partly destroyed by the bombing raids of World War II, Milan has rebuilt itself into a business capital. Milan has become a paradise for shoppers, sports lovers, opera fans, nightlife enthusiasts, and--of course--fashion aficionados. Add Milan and other destinations in Italy to your travel plans using our Italy day trip site.

Where to stay in Milan

For a quintessential Milanese experience, stay in the bustling heart of the old town. This area offers easy foot access to most of Milan's main sites, as well as some of the city's finest restaurants, shops, and theaters. The central area is also quite crowded, and comfortable rooms in good hotels can be very expensive. Visitors traveling on a budget can choose from a range of top-notch B&Bs and family-operated hostels, which offer private parking and access to private outdoor space, minutes from Milan's main attractions.
