Nestled in northern Italy, Milan is a destination for fashion lovers and sightseers alike. Blending architecture stretching back hundreds of years and a modern skyline, it’s a city of great contrast and great beauty. Milan is where many of the major international fashion houses are based such as Giorgio Armani and Prada.
One of Da Vinci’s most famous works, The Last Supper, is on view in the Santa Maria delle Grazie convent. It’s a must-see for any art lover. Speaking of Da Vinci, the Navigli (“na-vee-yee”) are a series of canals throughout the city which were worked on by the famous artist himself.
On the subject of architecture, the enormous Milan Cathedral is absolutely unmissable. This marvel took nearly 600 years to complete, finishing only in 1965! Yet again, Da Vinci was one of the architects on this project. With so much old and new, it’s an incredible city to explore!
