Proudly proclaiming itself Europe's creative capital
Milan is a city steeped in pleasure, where shopping isn’t just a lifestyle but practically a religion. The place offers doses of life and style in equal measure, with a throbbing club scene and delicious restaurants all mixed up with the biggest names in Italian fashion and design.

Check out the view from the roof of Milan’s central hub, the Duomo, which is topped-off by the Madonnina (little Madonna), who looks protectively down and over the city.
Must eat at:
For traditional cooking – and hordes of delighted locals – book yourself in at Trattoria Milanese, just a stone’s throw from the Duomo, for risotto, osso buco and devastatingly good minestone.
Must be there for:
The annual Oh Bej! Oh Bej! Celebration (a local mispronunciation of ‘che belli’ or ‘so beautiful’) around the Basilica of St Ambrose every December is a classy Milanese Christmas Fair... and neatly coincides with the opening of the winter season at La Scala opera.
- Travelling from Milan Bergamo Airport to the centre of town is easier by bus than train – direct buses leave from right outside the terminal.
- If you’re out late on a Saturday night, don’t fret. The local transport staff stay up late, too... the metro runs until around 2 in the morning.
British citizens do not need a visa to visit Italy.
