It took me a while to warm to Milan, which is the most Western European facing of Italy's major cities. Fashion-conscious, well-heeled, and chilly compared to parts further south. But once Milan gets into you, there's an irresistible charm.

Milan is Italy's business-y city. It's more gray than Rome, and much colder. However, you can see opera at La Scala, and stroll through the center, marvelling at the intricate sculptures decorating the Duomo. If you go in for designer shopping, it's definitely on offer. Make sure to stop for an aperitivo (drinks and snacks before dinner) which is a Milanese specialty.

Fashion, business, turn of the century architecture and cold weather. Milan is one of Europe's great cultural hubs and has been since the Roman times. Octavian went to college here. Ernest Hemingway recuperated from his war wounds and fell in love.

The fashion capital of Italy is also the gateway to the Lakes region. The hotels are over the top, the style is divine. If you want to see how the other half lives, take a trip to Milan!

An undisputed fashion capital, this city can feel less intimate than others you will encounter in Italy. However, Milan has something for everyone with great shopping, history, architecture and food.

Milan is not a top tourist destination in Italy but it is well worth a visit. The city centre is very walkable. The Cathedral, Il Duomo, is amazing. Shopping, of course, if you're a fashionista, but there's also great art and architecture for art and history buffs.
