Milan in Northern Italy is the country’s second largest city and serves as the capital of the Lombardy region. Some 5.2 million people inhabit the greater Milan metropolitan area and central Milan is home to 1.35 million residents.
Founded by the Celts, Milan flourished during the Middle Ages, when it became one of Europe’s most important banking and commercial centres. Today the city is home to the Italian Stock Exchange, one of the most important opera houses in the world, and boasts some of the world’s most important fashion and design companies.
Brimming over with important art collections that include works by Leonardo da Vinci and showcasing the fourth largest cathedral in the world, Milan is blessed with at least 2 million visitors every year. They come to enjoy the art collections and museums, or to attend important events like the Milan Fashion Week and Milan Furniture Fair or to join into the festivities that surround every major football event connected with local teams A C Milan and F C Internazionale Milano.
Shopping fanatics will find an endless number of stylish and chic fashion houses, glamorous boutiques and accessories outlets, jewellers, art galleries and places simply oozing with old-world charm in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, an architectural highlight among Europe’s turn-of-the-century shopping centres.
Milan’s summers are sultry and sticky, its winters are cold with plenty of rain and sleet, but that has never stopped tourists from enjoying the culinary, cultural and historic delights of the city. From the gorgeous Palazzo Marino, which houses the City Hall to the imposing Piazza del Duomo, Milan’s central square and home to the Royal Palace, the city never fails to impress.
Other highlights include the Basilica of San Lorenzo and Castello Sforzesco, the Teatro alla Scala, Milan’s famous opera house and ballet school, the botanical gardens and Chiaravalle Abbey, which dates back to 1135. The abbey ranks as one of the foremost examples of Gothic architecture in Italy and was originally conceived as a sister house to Clairvaux, the world-famous monastery. It is a perfect destination for a short drive into the historic districts of Milan, some of which are located well away from what is today’s city centre.
The Lombardy region sits at the very top of the Italian “boot”, roughly where the knee would be on a human. Close to the border of Switzerland and home to the Bergamo Alps, the Adamello massif and the Ortler Alps, the Lombardy also includes some of the Great Lakes such as Lake Maggiore, Lake Lugano, Lake Como, Lake Idro, Lake Garda and Lake Iseo. The natural splendour of the region is largely responsible for the enormous influx of visitors every year, but its historic towns and villages, amazing cuisine and stunning art collections are just as much frequented as the beautiful lakes and mountains.
With a rental vehicle from car hire Milan Malpensa Airport it is possible to spend a few exciting days in Milan and then explore this amazing region more extensively. Nature lovers will probably head straight to Stelvio National Park – Italy’s largest natural park – as it is one of best areas to see local wildlife and enjoy perfect relaxation with Mother Nature.
