If Catholic pilgrims troop to Rome, fashionistas head to Milan. This Italian city
is the hub of catwalk models and the headquarters of well-known Italian brands like Prada, Versace, and Gucci. Paparazzis and high-profile people in the fashion industry turn to Milan for the latest fashion trends. The Quadrilatero della moda overflows with designer brands and chic Milan hotels
. Yet, there is more to Milan than fashion. The city is Italy’s business and economic centre.
Milan has three international airports. The second biggest airport in Italy
is the Malpense International Airport. It is connected to downtown Milan by the Malpense Express. Meanwhile, the Orio al Serio serves a couple of budget airlines. The Linate Airport is mainly for European and domestic flights. Milan
has an extensive railway system, being the second railway hub in Italy. It has five railway stations. Several buses and cabs run around the city; however, traffic can be horrendous.
Adorning Milan is a mixture of historic and modern monuments. Most of the Roman-influenced architectures were destroyed by World War II; yet, several of Milan’s structures survived. The Milan Cathedral is the 4th biggest Cathedral in the world. It is known for its Gothic architecture and it houses the golden Madonna. The Castello Sforzesco is another medieval structure built in the 14th century. It now houses several museums and art galleries.
The Pirelli Tower and Velasca Tower flaunt modern designs. The Velasca Tower is a mushroom-like shaped tower. Other structures with modern architecture are Rome hotels just like the Town House Galleria. There are also boutique Milan hotels like Armani Hotel
and Bulgari Hotel
may not be as stunning in terms of buildings compared to Rome
. Still, its beauty lies in the fact that it knows how to please people. Milan is a place for fashion lovers, classy furniture makers, soccer fans, and opera followers. It may not be a tourism-oriented city; yet, it is more than prepared to receive tourists with its wonderful sites and accommodating Milan hotels.
