MILAN: A YOUNG, MODERN AND VIBRANT CITY

written by Dave Mitchell

Ostuni città bianca

Looking for a city where to spend your holidays which can satisfy all your needs? Milan, Italy, is the perfect destination of you next trip. I gained for the first time Milan a couple of years ago and I remained very impressed by the vivid and young spirit of this international city.

If you love European cities’ nightlife, if you like to make shopping and buy just fashion dresses, if you want to fully live your city time and go out with friends to have a happy hour break there is no other place in Italy better than Milan. You can take a walk around the very famous “Quadrilatero della Moda”, in downtown Milan, four streets where are concentrated all the best and most loved brands and shops of planet Earth.

After shopping you can go on walking towards the beautiful Piazza del Duomo, where you can relax having a lunch break in one of the many cafès located in the wonderful Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. If you love art, Milan is a perfect destination to spend some time: in Milan you can often find some of the best expositions Italy also because of the vibrant spirit of a city hometown of many young artists especially active in the fields of photography and design.

Palazzo Reale is one of the best art museums in Milan and inside it you can find some of the most important expositions which every year animate the City.
