An un­ex­pected Mi­lan

Italia Luxury - - Unmissable -

In 2016, Mi­lan was ranked the num­ber one tourist desti­na­tion in Italy. Gone are the days of a fly­ing visit, with just enough time for shop­ping be­fore catch­ing a cab to Malpensa air­port. Con­sid­ered one of the world’s lead­ing hubs of busi­ness, fash­ion and de­sign, to­day Mi­lan is fi­nally be­ing given long over­due credit as a city of art and a place of cul­tural in­ter­est. In ad­di­tion to the Duomo, the Gal­le­ria, La Scala and the Last Sup­per (ab­so­lute must-vis­its, in their own right), Mi­lan is also home to nu­mer­ous other at­trac­tions that make it much more than the pu­ri­tan­i­cally work-ob­sessed city that it is of­ten por­trayed as. In Mi­lan you'll find court­yards hid­den be­hind en­trance doors, master­pieces of ar­chi­tec­ture un­ex­pect­edly re­vealed amidst anony­mous fa­cades and pub­lic and pri­vate mu­se­ums of­fer­ing myr­iad treasures.
