If Milan is Italy's financial capital, then it is also and above all the fashion capital. Strolling through the city streets means seeing shop windows with the latest styles and coming across people who seem to have stepped off the latest catwalk.
Milan is also reputed for its design, its antiques, music and cultural events which take place throughout the year. Lovers of Italian culture will be thrilled with the galleries, museums, theatres and operas. With almost two million inhabitants, the Lombardian metropole is a young city which enjoys an intense nightlife and an atmosphere characteristic of the "Navigli"! When the bars close at night, the "locali", a type of nightclub set up in a warehouse, open their doors and the fashionable Milanese meet up there until the early hours of the morning. This unknown Milan is surprising to tourists and when you come across it, the city's character will have changed. In order to escape the hubbub of the city in less than an hour, dream landscapes await you on the banks of Lake Como, of Lake Garda or in one of the numerous charming towns which surround Milan.
