What is there to do in Milan?

From the magnificent Duomo to the iconic San Siro, these are some of the best things to do in Milan:

  • Duomo

The city’s most important landmark located right in the centre of Milan. 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 is complete without partaking in this pre-dinner ritual. Near Porta Ticinese, Fonderie Milanesi is the ideal venue to socialise like a true Italian: sit outdoors and revel in light bites alongside your favourite cocktail. The tradition began in the late 19th century, 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 and it’s now common to find bars with elaborate buffet spreads. Commonly enjoyed between 7pm and 9pm, it’s not unusual for the best spots to be completely packed – but it’s this community spirit that makes it so special.

  • 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 a torrent of bars have sprung up as well as 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 many times, 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 due to some ill-thought-out renovations!

  • Teatro alla Scala

Since being founded 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. But if you’re not feeling like sitting through an entire night of opera, why not visit the museum instead, where you can at least enjoy the aesthetic majesty of 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 with the likes of Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Coldplay, Bruce Springsteen, One Direction and Madonna all gracing the stadium.

Are there free things to do in Milan?

  • There are lots of free things to do in Milan. Enjoy the city’s multitude of parks and green spaces, stroll through the canal abundant Navigli District, or take in the magnificent Duomo Cathedral.
  • A 15-minute walk away from Collegiate Milan North, you’ll find Pirelli HangarBicocca, an art centre with huge exhibition galleries, showcasing some of the world’s most awe-inspiring contemporary art.
  • If you’re an art lover, why not take a street-art tour. All over the city, you’ll find both grandiose and more discreet artistic installations, from huge building-side murals to tiny, decorated manhole coverings. Visit the Leoncavallo area for an incredible collection of stunning graffiti, just a few minutes from Collegiate Milan North.

What are some interesting facts about Milan?

  • Milan is Italy’s second largest city and home to the most skyscrapers, including the iconic Pirelli Tower. At the time of construction, the tower was the tallest building in Italy, and the first building to surpass the Milan Cathedral in height. However, it’s now lost its title and these days there are several towers taller than the Pirelli Tower. In fact, today it’s only the 10th tallest building in Milan, and the tallest, the UniCredit Tower is almost twice as high.
  • The city is also one of the fashion capitals of the world, sharing its status with fellow powerhouses London, Paris and New York. Venice isn’t the only Italian city home to an impressive collection of canals as Milan boasts the Navigli, a system of 5 canals connecting different neighbourhoods.
  • Milan is truly an art lover’s dream. The Last Supper is probably one of the most famous paintings in the world, along with the Mona Lisa, with both painted by Leonardo da Vinci. While it’s a well-known fact that Paris’ Louvre Museum hosts the Mona Lisa, did you know that The Last Supper is located here in Milan, in the Santa Maria delle Grazie church. The painting sits on the wall of the Church’s refectory, and you might be surprised by how big it is!
