It is hard to be bored in a city with beautiful churches, interesting museums, lively bars and lots of shops! Without a doubt Milan’s most famous landmark is the Duomo, the largest Gothic cathedral in the world. It boasts 3,500 statues and some fantastic views over Milan.
Milan is home to Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘Last Supper’, which is placed in the 500-year-old Church of Santa Maria della Grazie. It is something of a miracle that the painting exists today after nearly being destroyed during World War II and being used as target practice during Renaissance times. The city’s best art collection is housed at the Pinacoteca di Brera Museum and features works by Italian artists from the 13th to the 20th centuries. Behind the museum, the Orto Botanico di Brera is a nice spot to relax.
