Things To Do: Milan
If you're visiting the city then you may want to get yourself a bit of an itinerary started so you can make the most of your holiday and see everything in the time you are there. To get you started we have picked out three of our favourite things to do in Milan:
The Last Supper: Leonardo da Vinci's depiction of the last supper is one of Milan's ultimate attractions, and you just can't go to the city without seeing it. You will need to book a ticket well in advance in order to be able to go but it's not far from the city centre and it's also next to the Santa Maria delle Grazie which is fantastic in itself.
Duomo Cathedral: The cathedral that took nearly six centuries taking thousands of workers and a new canal system to build, it's also still not fully complete... but it is a beautiful must see site in the heart of Milan. It is the seat of the Archbishop of Milan and is built in an Italian gothic style with construction beginning in 1386. It's the fifth largest Christian church in the world and has the most statues.
Sforzesco Castle: Originally a Visconti Fortress the Sforzesco Castle was home to the Sforza dynasty. Defences designed by da Vinci and with the moat drained and drawbridges removed by Napoleon you get what stands in Milan today. It's home to seven different museums and encompasses a central part of Milan's culture and civic history as well as containing the last of Michelangelo's work. Oh.. and most importantly, it's free to visit.
Driving Tips In Milan
- Areas of the centre of Milan have a congestion charge so ensure that you pay this prior to driving through, this is something your rental company should make you aware of.
-Parking outside of the city centre and travelling in on foot is advised, finding parking within the centre itself can be extremely hard. Prepare your self for a little bit of a walk every now and again, alternatively you could also get a tram in or bus, like a park and ride situation.
- Take a GPS! A lot of Italian roads can be small and windy, it's easy to get yourself lost so ensure that you take a GPS with you. It may not necessarily be the best idea to pay for this as an added extra as you could bring your own in your hand luggage or buy one there as it may work out a lot cheaper!
