Things to do in Milan

If relaxing on your holiday is one of your main aims, then getting flights to Milan is just the start of it. A wander round the main square taking in the sights and the architecture is a great tonic to begin with, then you can build up to drinks in a vibrant bar before heading off for dinner in one of the many restaurants.

During the day, check out the local area by visiting historical sites and museums. You can learn a lot about a place by browsing in the markets or shopping for local goods and handicrafts that will remind you of your holiday forever.

These sights are definitely worth a visit:

Duomo di Milano
The sight that will take your breath away is not the bill at the end of your meal but the Duomo, the biggest Gothic cathedral in the world. It can hold 40,000 people and took 600 years to complete. Views from the roof are sensational where you can also see some of the 135 spires and 3,400 statues.

The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci
A masterpiece that is housed in the Cenacolo Vinciano, west of the centre. If you want a glimpse of this painting, it is wise to book ahead to get a ticket otherwise you might be disappointed on the day.

For entertainment, the opera season is in full swing from November to July, while football fans might want to catch AC Milan or Internazionale playing at their home ground of Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
