Fashionable Milan will steal your heart

Discover the beauty, fashion, and art of Milan

Originally a trading center founded by the Romans in 222 BC, Milan is still THE place the entire world travels to for luxury goods. Boutiques beckon with their fine gauge sweaters and silk ties. Scout out which stores you’d like to window-shop in before committing your entire paycheck away.

About Italy


For starters, prepare for your arrival into Milano Centrale station by not wearing too-tight yoga pants, fanny pack and white sneakers. Not that you should care what other people think. But you are in the city of Gucci, so you might as well try to look effortlessly chic. Exit the train to find a sea of black suits, men groomed with slick dark hair and many pairs of oversized glasses covering women’s delicate faces. And the stilettos. Lots of 4-inch heels easily walking through the station. How do they do it ? They’re Italian.

Mark Twain visited the Milan Cathedral, and upon seeing the masterwork said, “What a wonder it is ! So grand, so solemn, so vast ! And yet so delicate, so airy, so graceful !” With its 135 spires, the church is the 4th largest in the world and took over 500 years to build. You too can tour the wonder. Head to the roof and get a better look at the delicate flying buttresses and openwork pinnacles.

The Teatro alla Scala, or as it’s more commonly referred to, “La Scala,” is one of the world’s leading opera and ballet houses. A museum documenting the theater’s history contains an extraordinary collection of paintings, drafts, statues, costumes, and other documents. In recent years, the theater has been renovated to improve sound quality. Now that’s music to your ears.

For many, the main reason to visit Milan is to witness the DaVinci iconic masterpiece, "The Last Supper." In order to enter Santa Maria della Grazie, you’ll need to purchase tickets in advance to view the most visited painting in all of Italy.

Need a break from the frenetic pace of city life ? Take your designer duds and new appreciation for opera and art and hop on board the high speed train to Como. In just over 30 minutes,you’ll be in the land known as Lago di Como. The sparkling lake is surrounded by sophisticated towns : Bellagio, Tramezzo, Varenna. Take a boat out into the middle and marvel at the surrounding vistas. And maybe a sighting of George Clooney.

Milan is the perfect start to cover Italy from top to pointy toe. And with a Eurail Italy Pass, you’ll see more, feel more, taste more. Go for the gusto. And look chic doing it.

In Milan you will find distinct flavours that will make you discover the origins of the Lombard cuisine : Risotto alla milanese, cotoletta, panetton... Savour these old fashioned traditional Milanese dishes accompanied by the best wines in one of the many restaurants of the city.

Go to the heart of the luxury shopping area in Milan : Via Montenapoleone, Via della Spiga and Via Sant’Andrea are streets that together with Via Manzoni, Via Borgospesso and Via Santo Spirito are best known for shopping sprees. The most prestigious boutiques are there. You will also find unique jewels created by the most famous name, clothes and accessories to die for, and shoes that are works of art. The factory shops or atelier showrooms of Gucci, Versace, Luis Vuitton, Prada and Cartier are found there. In Via Sant’Andrea you can find brands like Fendi, Armani, Moschino, Kenzo, Cesare Paciotti, Hermés, Prada and Trussardi. The elegant Via Manzoni is home to the Giorgio Armani store.
