Best hotels to stay in Milan, Italy in 2018
Milan is the second in size city in Italy. Many people associate it with high fashion, shopping, and legendary brands. But Milan offers much more than that.
Milan unites the contemporaneity with history and manages to be more than a faceless bustling megapolis. The famous Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the Piazza del Duomo, its magnificent palaces and churches, the famous opera house and squares, cozy coffee shops and confectioneries will make you fall in love. Give Milan some time, and even the rainiest and gloomiest day in this city will appear to become a fascinating adventure.
Piazza del Duomo - is the heart of Milan. Here stands the one of the most beautiful gothic building in the world - Milan Cathedral. It’s white marble walls are covered with sculptural compositions, illustrations from the Bible, angels, and demons, turning this church into a piece of art one can admire and contemplate for days. You can enter the cathedral for 3 euros, and go up to its terrace for 9-13 euros, depending on the time of your visit. But we would highly recommend seeing it both during the daylight and lit by the stars and the moon.
The most famous opera house is located in Milan and is called La Scala. All the connoisseurs of music and art are dreaming of attending it. Everything in its interior is screaming with majesty and luxury. The walls are gilded and covered with stucco work, the illumination and mirrors create a special atmosphere for all the visitors of the opera. If you among those connoisseurs who come to Milan specifically to enjoy the opera, be ready to pay the average rate from 20 to 200 euros for the performance.
If you still came for shopping, head to Quadrilatero Della Moda which starts just behind the Duomo Square but be ready for the prices. However, if you have a deadly urge to buy branded clothes, you’ll have to go out of Milan to Fidenza Village and Serravalle Outlet, where you can buy clothes and accessories of famous European brands for comparably low prices.
