Welcome to one of the most beautiful and unique European cities, where history, art, fashion, industry and sport meet. Milan is one of the most important opera centres, shopping places and football capitals in the world.
This is the city where medieval churches and skyscrapers are major symbols at the same time. Modern art is appreciated no less than paintings by Leonardo da Vinci. The city is full of things to see for every kind of tourist. In Milan, you can always find something special for you.
We start our journey from Cathedral Square (Piazza del Duomo). You can reach it by any kind of public transport, but the most convenient one is the subway (‘metropolitana’ in Italian). If you arrived at Milan’s Central railway station (Stazione Centrale) by train or bus from the airport, take the yellow line that runs directly from the railway station (Centrale FS) to the Catherdal (Duomo). Take any exit from the ‘Duomo’ stop – they all lead to the main square.
