The capital of all stylish cities. That is probably the most important thing that can be said about this city. Only here you will find so many well dressed men and women.

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

The Gallery is one of the most visited sights of Milan. Represents a lively avenue with numerous boutiques and restaurants. It connects the square in front of the famous La Scala theater with an equally famous square in front of the Duomo.

Milan Cathedral (Duomo)

One of the largest in Europe. Among the Gothic temples is inferior by capacity only the Seville Cathedral and among Italian churches only to St. Peter's in Rome. There are almost 3,400 statues in the cathedral. Be sure to take an excursion to the roof of the Cathedral. You can get there by both ways, by foot, and by an elevator. The view from there is spectacular.

Pinacoteca Brera

One of the largest galleries in Milan. It is located in the urban zone 1, in the same quarter, in the baroque Palazzo which was constructed in the end of the XVI-XVII centuries where also located the Milan Academy of Arts. It contains one of the foremost collections of Italian paintings.

The collection presents the works of such artists as Ambrogio Lorenzetti, Donato Bramante, Raphael, Mantegna, Piero del Francesca, Gentile da Fabriano, Carpaccio, Tintoretto, Lorenzo Lotto and others.

Monumental Cemetery

The monumental cemetery of Milan (Cimitero Monumentale) is not just a cemetery and an open-air museum measuring 250,000 square meters. It is a city inside of the city with its own history, architecture and a map. "The City of the Dead" is more than 140 years old, the cemetery was founded in 1866.

Santa Maria delle Grazie

The main church of the Dominican monastery in the western part of Milan. In the refectory of this temple is one of the most famous frescoes in the world - The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci.

Sforza Castle

Castello Sforzesco or Castello Sforzesco is the name of the residences of the Milanese Dukes of the Sforza dynasty in Milan and Vigevano.

Milan Castle was originally built in the XIV century as the residence of Visconti but was dismantled by a crowd of rebellious people after the proclamation of the Ambrosian Republic.  Was rebuilt by Francesco Sforza in the middle of the XV century. In the second half of the XV century, Leonardo da Vinci was involved in decorating the castle.

Behind the castle, there is a beautiful park where you can walk and take a break from the city bustle.

Bosco Verticale

Residential complex of two towers 110 and 76 meters high. Two skyscrapers were built in Milan's Porta Nuova district in 2009-2014. The authors of the project are Italian architects Stefano Boeri, Gianandrea Barreca and Giovanni La Varra. The peculiarity of the project is that there are green plantings on the terraces surrounding each of the floors: about 900 trees, 5000 shrubs and 11 000 grass paths have been planted there.

Church of San Maurizio

"Sistine Chapel of Milan" - this is how the Milanese call this church. Inside there are the magnificent frescoes of Bernardo Luini (1530 year) and of other artists of the school of Leonardo. I would even say that this place is must for visiting in Milan. If the Duomo makes a great impression from the outside, then this small church which is completely inconspicuous from the outside will give you many unexpected discoveries inside.

Church of Santa Maria del Carmine

The church was built in Gothic style. Inside of it, there are more interesting for your view the two works of Giovanni Battista della Rovere, better known as "Fiammenghino" ("Il Fiammenghino", 1575 - 1640) "Raising Lazarus" in the right transept and "Coronation of Our Lady" in the left transept.

As you can see in Milan there is something to see and not only beautiful cars and beautiful shop windows. There are enough cultural attractions, which in any case will not fade on the background of Gucci and Lamborghini.
