Dynamic, modern and bursting with contrasts, Milan is THE major Italian metropolis.
The province of Milan is the second most populous province in Italy. Prepare to be surprised by the diversity of its different neighbourhoods, the sheer number and richness of its museums and places to visit. Milan is also a city that knows how to enjoy itself - criss-crossed with wide boulevards and dotted with beautiful parks, it boasts a rich cultural life, including the world-famous La Scala opera house, enduring emblem of the city. Milan is the global capital of fashion and design. If you prefer to escape from the heat of the city and unwind in a more rural setting - cooler and sheltered from the urban buzz -, nature and the great lakes are right on your doorstep.
