Milan Tourism - Online hotel reservations and tourist attractions

Being a genuine fashion hub – several fashion brands, Milansuch as Valentino, Gucci, Versace, Prada, Armani and Dolce & Gabbana, having their main headquarters here – but also a world center of economy, culture, science and design, Milan obviously amasses a great deal of tourist assets.

On top of all, Milan is known for its ability to absorb, as it did and it still does, some of the most spectacular architectural styles in the world, such as the Romanesque architecture, the Gothic, the Neoclassical or the Neo-Romanesque architecture, just as Art Nouveau or Art Deco.

Short History of Milan

Celts are known to have been the first people to inhabit the place, but the uprise of the city was an event resulting as a consequence of the Roman dominion. In this respect, it's worth mentioning that Milan became the capital of the Western Roman Empire in the 3rd century AD. The city is also famous as to its ancient importance as the place where the Edict of Milan, granting freedom of religion for Christians, was pronounced. Milan made its way through as an important trade cross point in the Middle Ages, but the Renaissance and the Modern Era brought to the city the fame of cultural hub. The historic role of Milan was once again substantiated when the city became the main center of resistance against Germans during World War Two.

Accommodation in Milan

Business travelers are the best served in Milan when it comes to accommodation. But tourists traveling for nothing but pleasure can definitely identify lodging solutions, since the city, despite despite being one of the most pricy places in Europe, makes available a series of establishments able to cover such needs. People traveling on a budget should resort to hotels located in the outskirts of the city, or even to establishments nearby Milan. This possible shortcoming is counterbalanced by the excellent transport infrastructure of the place.

Italian cuisine at Milan

Milanese cuisine is recommended as priority as compared to international cuisine when arriving in Milan. Besides restaurants serving international dishes, Milan hosts a great number of establishments where local courses are prepared. It is known that rice is chosen over pasta, and the fact that the main course is risotto alla milanese is relevant in this respect. The cotoletta alla milanese (breaded veal cutlet fried in butter) and the Milanese salami are yet other proud representatives of Milanese cuisine, whereas, in terms of deserts, the city is famous by its Panettone.

Tourism Attractions and Objectives in Milan

The Milan Dome (or Milan Cathedral) is the most significant landmark as to both religious establishments – Milan hosts more than 20 churches – and to the grandness of Gothic architecture. Milan also bristles with a lot of museums and galleries, of which the Bagatti-Valsecchi Palace, the Natural History Museum, the Poldi-Pezzoli Museum or the Theater Museum, on the one hand, and Ambrosiana Art Gallery, the Municipal Modern Art Gallery and the Civic Museum of Contemporary Art, on the other hand, must be mentioned. The Porta Nuova Arches, the Ticinese Porta, the Sforzesco Castle, as well as the Pirelli Tower and the Velasca Tower must be ticked off on the list of tourist attractions.

Events and Festivals in Milan

Milan hosts two major fashion events, one in March, the other in October, under the name of MODIT – Milanovendemoda, but it is also the place where the longest carnival in the world is held, namely, the Ambrosiano Carnival. The Milan – San Remo bicycle race is worth mentioning in terms of sports events, along with Stramilano, a popular marathon, and the Premier Football League. But the Flower Fair (Fiera dei Fiori), the Milano Cortili Aperti, the Pittori sul Naviglio, the Sagra del Carroccio or the Photoshow are just as looked forward as all the other events, and the list is far from being comprehensive.
