Learn About This Location
Home to the Italian stock exchange, an industrial powerhouse and the internationa trend setter in fashion and design, Milan is a bustling metropolis. At times it can seems brash and all business, but beneath the facade is a unmistakable sense of history and place. The grand Gothic cathedral lies at the center of this once Imperial Roman capital, and evinces the love of beauty and power that still drives the city in modern times. Art collections from then and now, unequalled shopping, beguiling nightlife, world-class opera at La Scala, a religious for calcio (soccer), and endless opportunities to eat the best of Italian food make Milan much more than the workaholic city it is often spoken about as.
