Port of Milan

Milan is the second largest city in Italy and holds the status as one of the world's great centers of art and fashion. In fact, it's something of a pilgrimage destination for fashionistas and is well-known for its upscale shops and restaurants.

Milan is also a deeply historic city and home to many landmarks, including the Duomo di Milano and Il Cenacolo, which houses Leonardo DaVinci's famous "The Last Supper" mural. Depending on when you're in town, you may even be able to catch an opera performance at the legendary La Scala. With its picturesque glass ceiling, a trip at the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II offers an entirely new shopping experience. For authentic Milanese leather goods though, head to the Brera District.
