What is there to do in Milan?

From the Duomo to a farm smack-dab around the city, these are some of the best things to do in Milan:

The city’s most important landmark located smack-dab in the centre of it all. Building on this magnificent Gothic cathedral began in the late 14th century and lasted hundreds of years. While there is plenty to see inside the cathedral, a visit to the top – via stairs or an elevator – is an absolute must in order to see Milan’s ever-changing skyline.

Fonderie Milanesi
The aperitivo is considered an institution in Milan, and no visit to the city would be complete without partaking in this pre-dinner ritual. Near Porta Ticinese, Fonderie Milanesi is the ideal venue to enjoy the Italian trend: sit outdoors and revel in light bites alongside your specialty cocktail. The tradition got its start in the late 19thcentury, when Gaspare Campari, intent on serving a drink that stimulated rather than spoiled the appetite, began serving his eponymous bitter aperitif. As more drinks were developed, more nibbles were added to the offerings; it’s common now to find bars with elaborate buffet spreads. Commonly enjoyed between 7pm and 9pm, it’s not uncommon for the best spots to be completely packed – but that community spirit is exactly the aperitivo ethos.

Navigli District
Constructed over hundreds of years, with input from da Vinci himself, Milan’s system of navigable and interconnected canals granted the landlocked city more access to the outside world. Today, the Naviglio Grande and Naviglio Pavese are some of the only canals still visible, and around them have sprung up a torrent of bars, restaurants and cafés that thrum with activity on weekend nights.

The Last Supper
Perhaps one of the most famous paintings in the world, da Vinci’s The Last Supper has been reproduced to death, but no tote bag or mouse pad or even large-scale reproduction can adequately capture the artist’s emotionally charged mural. Visit this incredible piece of history – even despite the fact that Jesus’s feet were lost in 1652 given some ill-thought-out renovations.

Teatro alla Scala
Since its founding by Archduchess Maria Theresa in the late 18th century, the Teatro alla Scala has remained one of the finest opera theatres in Europe. We’d highly recommend a night out at this grand auditorium, it’s truly an experience like no other. Not feeling sitting through an entire night of opera?Visit the museum instead, where you can at least lay eyes on the glorious red and gold interior.

San Siro Stadium
This colossal football shrine is a testament to the popularity of both AC Milan and Inter, the city’s two football teams. The stadium was consistently enlarged over the first half of the 20th century to accommodate more and more fans, eventually reaching a capacity of around 80,000 people (making it the largest in Italy and one of the largest stadiums in Europe). This also makes it a prime spot for concerts: the likes of Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Coldplay, Bruce Springsteen, One Direction and Madonna have all graced the stadium.
