Milan is an attractive and charming city with a vibe that balances old-world romance and history with urban grit and cosmopolitanism. Today, Milan enchants, fascinates and inspires reflection on urban transformations, it is a city that frees a potential energy that the world finally seems to have noticed. While it may be known for its role as a fashion and design capital, the city’s grand style doesn’t stop there. The storied city has a colorful history that stretches back to 600 B.C. and includes a period as capital of the Italian Empire, under Napoléon. Surprising is the harmony that has been created between large, new buildings and historical ones, the contrast between old and new is very strong and yet it is never discordant. Many of its most interesting sights and attractions are not readily apparent, so you’ll need to dig a little deeper to discover the gems that really make the city unique. Luckily, Milan is surprisingly walkable and at times feels more like a compact town than a major European metropolis. The architecture is as varied as its museum and gallery offerings from early medieval to mid-century through to contemporary. Its design and fashion heritage also provide the city a cosmopolitan personality you won’t find anywhere else. There is bustling life here. There is renewal.
