Things to do in  Milan

Welcome to Milan

Fashion-forward Milan dazzles with glamour, but Italy’s style capital has more to it than first meets the eye. From the Gothic gargoyles and spires of Milan Duomo to Leonardo da Vinci’s much-loved masterpiece “The Last Supper,” the city boasts plenty of history, art, and culture. Treat yourself to a night of opera at historic La Scala, hit the “aperitivo” hangouts of Navigli for a bright orange spritz, and embrace the Milanese love of shopping with a spree at the flagship stores of Via Montenapoleone.

Top 10 attractions in Milan

#1
Da Vinci's Last Supper (Il Cenacolo)

Da Vinci's Last Supper (Il Cenacolo)

star-4.57,079
Each day, Leonardo da Vinci's "The Last Supper (Il Cenacolo)" draws hundreds of art-loving visitors to the unassuming refectory of the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie for just 15 minutes with the painting (Yes, it's that good). Milan's famous 15th-century wall mural may be one of the most famous (and regulated) artworks in Italy—to see it, you must book entrance tickets in advance or sign up for a guided Milan city tour.More
#2
Milan Duomo

Milan Duomo

star-58,512
Milan’s Duomo (duomo di Milano) is a much-loved symbol of the city. The most exuberant example of Northern Gothic architecture in Italy, the cathedral and its spiky spires and towers dominate Piazza del Duomo, the city's beating heart. One of the highlights of a visit to the cathedral is the view from the roof, where you can scope out Milan from the highest terrace surrounded by statues. On a clear day, it’s possible to see the Italian Alps.More
#3
La Scala Opera House (Teatro alla Scala)

La Scala Opera House (Teatro alla Scala)

star-55,996
La Scala Opera House (Teatro alla Scala), one of the world’s greatest opera houses, has hosted some of Italy’s most famous opera and other performances. Located in downtown Milan, this 18th-century theater and cultural landmark—magnificently restored in 2004—seats many of its 2,000 spectators in elegant boxes adorned with gold leaf and red velvet.More
#4
Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

star-54,448
In the fashion capital of Italy, the soaring, glass-domed Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II shopping arcade never goes out of style. Started in 1877, Europe’s oldest shopping mall connects the Milan Duomo to Piazza di Marino and the La Scala Opera House (Teatro alla Scala) by way of a bright and airy, four-story center lined with busy restaurants and shops. Come for the Neoclassical architecture, stay for the brands and fresh baked panzerotti.More
#5
Sforza Castle (Castello Sforzesco)

Sforza Castle (Castello Sforzesco)

star-52,387
Sforza Castle (Castello Sforzesco) is a medieval fortress built by the Visconti dynasty that became home to Milan’s ruling Sforza family in 1450. Stark and domineering, the historic brick castle has massive round battlements, an imposing tower overlooking the central courtyard and surrounding Parco Sempione gardens, and defensive walls designed by Leonardo da Vinci. Today the castle houses a number of world-class museums and galleries.More
#6
Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie (Chiesa di Santa Maria delle Grazie)

Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie (Chiesa di Santa Maria delle Grazie)

star-51,228
Visitors flock to the modest 15th-century Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie (Chiesa di Santa Maria delle Grazie)—built by Duke Francesco I Sforza and later reworked by Bramante—primarily to take in one of Italy’s most celebrated works of Renaissance art: Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper, which decorates the refectory wall of the adjoining Dominican convent.More
#7
San Siro Stadium (Stadio San Siro)

San Siro Stadium (Stadio San Siro)

star-4729
Milan hosts two top-division soccer (football) teams at San Siro Stadium, the largest in Italy. Also known as Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, the stadium was built in 1925 for the AC Milan team, and in 1947, the rival FC Internazionale team, known as Inter, also moved in. Today, up to 80,000 fans fill the stadium to watch live games.More
#8
Stresa

Stresa

star-4.5196
Perched on the western shore of placid Lake Maggiore, the tiny resort town of Stresa is backed by the Alpine foothills of Monte Mottarone and boasts elegant hotels on a tree-lined promenade. Stroll through picturesque Piazza Cadorna in the town center, relax on the waterfront lidos, or take a ferry to the charming islands nearby.More
#9
Brera

Brera

star-51,408
Milan boasts a number of trendy neighborhoods thick with hip bars, restaurants, and clubs. Of these, the Brera district—a maze of narrow, cobblestone streets lined with boutiques and cafés near the Duomo in the city center—is perhaps the most beautiful thanks to its laid-back pace and old-world charm.More
#10
QC Termemilano

QC Termemilano

star-4226
Milan is known for its sophisticated style and unforgiving pace, but that doesn’t mean you can’t slow down and unwind in Italy’s fashion capital. If you need a break, QC Termemilano is an indulgent spa in the heart of the city with thermal baths, steam baths, relaxation rooms, massages, treatments, and more.More
