Milan | Lombardy

The city is truly about the lifestyle of enjoying worldly pleasures: a paradise for shopping, football, opera, and nightlife. Milan remains the marketplace for Italian fashion. †

The financial heart of Italy beats in Milan, but this is no buttoned up business town (despite what some southern Italians will tell you). Milan has always bent her prosperity towards the enrichment of life. This is the home of La Scala, one of the world’s great opera houses, as well as some of Europe’s most iconic Gothic architecture and da Vinci’s The Last Supper. If the Milanese aren’t making their city beautiful, they’re prettying themselves up; this is the home of Italy’s leading fashion brands.
