Milan is considered one of the world fashion and design capitals, alongside Paris and New-York. And of course as the Gay trendy capital of Italy.
Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Armani, Valentino, are the real stars of city. After shopping for days in Via Monte Napoleone, Via Della Spiga, or in Corso Como, you might consider visiting, and for this have a look at this mini Guide.
The city center is compact, and getting around is easy as most of the sights are contained within a small area. You can easily explore walking on your own, or with a friendly local Gaybassador who can show you around. To really enjoy the city, you will need at least two days and maybe one more to recover from your exciting Saturday night, as local gay life can be pretty vivid.
Milan is not a place you will fall in love at first sight. Actually, the city was devastated during the Second World War, as it was the center of the Italian Resistance. Milan is nowadays considered as the industrial, commercial, financial, and corporate heart of Italy.
The mythical Scala, the Gothic Cathedral and the Santa Maria Delle Grazie Convent,
which houses the Leonardo da Vinci fresco and The Last Supper, are three places you should not miss during your stay. A visit to the Design Museum is a must, such as a walk into the impressive Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.
After a full day touring, take a break and enjoy your time in the trendy area of Navigli, packed with creative restaurants, hipsters’ cafés, art galleries, antique shops
