Milan breathes creativity and sophistication. Known for its style in every sense of the word, be that through the incredible architecture, fabulous cuisine, or on the fashion runway itself.
Among the city's most treasured possessions is Leonardo da Vinci's legendary mural The Last Supper, without question one of the world's most iconic images. While there are regular guided tours, they prove very popular so you're best to book in advance if you want to see it.
Duomo - the city's magnificent Gothic cathedral - and the Castello Sforzesco, an impressive red brick castle housing several museums, are also among the must-not-miss attractions in this gorgeous Italian city.
It's worth noting Milan is also surrounded by some of the best spots in the Italian countryside – with some beautiful lakes and hills to explore - meaning there's somewhere peaceful to visit once you've spent some time exploring the city.
