Why visit Milan?
While Milan is undisputedly a modern city it is also one of the most ancient in Europe.
Partly destroyed by bombings during the Second World War, Milan (or Milano in Italian) managed to rebuild itself into the prosperous cosmopolitan city that it is today.
Although some may not consider it as beautiful as other Italian cities like Rome, Florence or Venice and its cultural charms may not be as obvious at first sight, but Milan is a city of many hidden treasures and surprises.
In essence, what makes Milan truly interesting for a tourist, compared to other places, is the lifestyle of worldly pleasures: it is a paradise for shopping, dining, nightlife, opera and of course also football which is of big importance to the Milanese people.
