Benvenuti a Milano, Italy’s capital of both fashion and finance. You might find yourself in this fast-paced metropolis if you’ve landed that dream internship with a top designer, or in the nation’s busy stock exchange. Art and architecture fanatics won’t be short of excitement either, with The Gothic Duomo di Milano cathedral and, of course, the Santa Maria delle Grazie convent, which houses the world-famous Leonardo da Vinci mural “The Last Supper”.
For the less culturally inclined, Milan is flush with shops and restaurants ready to be explored. Don’t miss the chance to hit one of the quirky bars that are frequented by professionals and creatives alike, from speakeasies, to Wes Anderson inspired décor, and even the Smallest Bar in the World! What’s more, Milan is much more connected to the rest of Europe than its southern Italy counterparts, so there are plenty of opportunities to hop on a train to France, Switzerland or even Austria.
