Although you won’t go without inspiration in the style department, Milan isn’t just about fashion. It was first settled in the year 400 and was an important hub for trade throughout the middle ages and into modern times. As a fast paced metropolis, Milan mixes old world and new, with classic architecture like the Il Duomo cathedral, the Castello Sforzesco, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, and La Scala showing up strong for must-see Italian cultural icons. It is also a major transportation hub and will get you easily to any of the other European cities you plan to visit while abroad.
