Milan is undoubtedly the fashion mecca numero uno. It is Italy's financial and business center of shopping with an array of trendy boutiques.
In Milan you can see one of the art world's true classics; Leonardo da Vinci's "Last Supper". It's something you definitely do not want to miss. Besides the amazing mural, the actual experience itself is worth the trouble. If you are interested in art you must also take the opportunity to visit the Pinacoteca di Brera, one of Italy's leading museum with works by Raffaello, Caravaggio and Mantegna.
If you are a football fan a visit to the San Siro Stadium is a given. See the passionate Italian players give everything or become mesmerized by the Italian fans. Strolling around the town area of the canals of Navigli is another fine experience. This is a nice activity after an intense day of shopping or great cultural intake. The incomparable Cathedral El Doumo is also a must-see if you are traveling to Milan.
If you go to Milan, you can look forward to first-class nightlife, whether you're into flashy dance halls and more "popular" premises. There is a huge variety of clubs in Corso Como, where you can dance the night away and in Brera and Navigli you can find many cozy bars.
You are guaranteed to eat well in Milan and some typical dishes to try are Risotto alla Milanese and fritto misto alla Milanese. Two wonderfully authentic venues is Trattoria da Pino and al Matarel Signora Elide. When in Italy, you have to eat pizza and the best is in Fabbrica Pizzeria con Cucina.
As in many other southern European countries many shops close for lunch between 1-3pm.
