Milan: City of amazing History, Center Of Fashion, Art From Dreams, Experience The Milan
One of the world’s fashion capitals, Milan offers endless opportunities for chic shopping. Hit the artsy neighborhood of Brera for leather goods and Via Monte Napoleone for exclusive, expensive boutiques. The enchanting mosaics and glass vaults of Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II make shoppers feel like they’re wandering inside a painting. Take break from your spree to gape at the iconic Duomo, then grab tickets to a performance at La Scala. Post-opera, the Navigli district pulses with late-night activity.
This video tour includes the:
Piazza Duomo - Located in the very heart of the city, the famed Duomo is one of the largest Gothic churches in Italy. Its highest spire is dominated by a golden statue of the Virgin Mary, affectionately known as the 'Madonnina,' the protector of Milan. The most precious relic on display inside is the True Cross, believed to belong to Jesus when he was crucified. Weather permitting, visit the rooftop to gaze at an amazing view of Milan and its courtyards - a great photo opportunity. There you will have your own personal photo of amazing site.
Teatro La Scala - While the Opera House facade is not that impressive, the luxury interiors are breathtaking. If you like Opera and Ballet, this could also be the ideal occasion to enjoy a performance and test the sound quality of the acoustic system. Otherwise, you can glimpse the auditorium from the boxes by taking a tour of the theater's museum, as long as rehearsals are not taking place. Just like from the movies.
Brera District -To the left side of Teatro alla Scala Opera House, you'll find Giuseppe Verdi road, a street lined with antique shops and stores selling professional products for fine arts. Follow this to the pretty neighborhood of Brera, with its narrow streets, cute chops, and tasty restaurants.
Via Fiori Chiari, one of the most iconic streets here, is full of good restaurants. Brera is also famous for Pinacoteca di Brera, Milan's main art gallery which houses beautiful paintings of the Lombard and Venetian schools. The most famous of these include Caravaggio's 'Supper at Emmaus', 'The Kiss' by Hayez and 'The Montefeltro Altarpiece' by the Italian Renaissance artist, Piero della Francesca.
Sforza Castle -v built in the XV century by Francesco Sforza, Duke of Milan. Today the impressive structure is home to several museums, including the Egyptian museum and the Museum of Ancient Art, which features Michelangelo’s final (and unfinished) sculpture, Rondanini Pietà. Sempione park, the biggest green area in Milan if you have time you must visit this calm and peaceful area. Continue walking until you reach the Arch of Peace, the triumphal arch and a sort of virtual gate to Sempione Street.
And of course, since the city is a centre of worlds fashion, I have put a glimpse into the fashion week, not too much since I prefer to present to you the city itself.
Hope you will enjoy it as much as I have.
