Esta linda cidade é famosa pelas suas passarelas, mas também tem de tudo, desde restaurantes de primeira classe até à maior igreja em Itália.

Known as a design mecca, this beautiful city is where new meets old and is one of the most forward-thinking destinations in the world.

While Milan is known as the fashion and design capital of the world, it has much more to offer than its runways. As the second-most populous city in Italy after Rome, Milan is home to stunning architecture and numerous museums, shopping centers, and world-class restaurants.

And, with three different international airports, it’s a cinch to get there from anywhere in the world. No matter what time of year you go, you’re sure to have a blast in Milan. (Just don’t forget to pack seasonally appropriate clothing, because temperatures get hot in the summer and chilly in the winter.) Plus, once you’re there, getting around is accessible with the city’s metro, tram lines, bike share programs, and bus system. So, without further ado, let’s check out some of the best things to do in Milan, Italy.

Semana da Moda

Of course, Milan is definitely the place to be if you are looking to go on a fashion-forward vacation. Established in 1958, Milan Fashion Week is held twice a year — the autumn/winter session is held in February/March, and the spring/summer session is held in September/October. You probably won’t be able to get into any of the larger shows without credentials, but Fashion Week makes the entire city come alive with the hustle and bustle of industry folks. (Plus, the festival is full of different events, with many open to the public!) There is a magical atmosphere where you can find models roaming the streets and luxury and elegance all around you.

Duomo di Milano

If you’re a fan of beautiful architecture, you won’t want to skip out on the Duomo di Milano, the largest church in Italy (not counting the sovereign nation of Vatican City, of course).which is considered the centerpiece of the entire city. Visiting the church is a must-do with its impressive collection of statues covering the cathedral, rood, and the Baptistery. Construction work on the Duomo of Milan began in 1386 — yes, you read that correctly — and didn’t finish until 1965.

Villa Necchi Campiglio

Once Milan’s most famous party house for Italian elites, the Villa Necchi Campiglio is a gorgeous villa surrounded by a beautiful private garden complete with a swimming pool and a tennis court, set in the city’s center. Built between 1932 and 1935, the pristinely preserved villa now serves as a fine art and design museum that features guided tours.

Galeria Vittorio Emanuele II

Estás ansioso por fazer compras enquanto estás na cidade? Não procure mais longe do que o elegante centro comercial do século XIX, a Galeria Vittorio Emanuele II. Sendo a mais antiga galeria comercial activa de Itália - e um marco importante da cidade de Milão - aloja algumas das boutiques mais luxuosas da cidade. Entre as compras, pode visitar alguns dos excelentes restaurantes da galeria, como o Café Biffi, que remonta a 1867.

Comer em Itália é uma cidade sem cérebro, claro, mas Milão é uma cidade particularmente grande para se deslumbrar. A velha guarda dos tradicionalistas ainda lá está, mas uma nova onda de chefs e restauradores mudou-se para dar à cozinha da cidade uma nova vida. Encontrará muitos restaurantes e bares deliciosos e acessíveis em Navigli, um bairro cujo nome significa "canais". (Vamos deixar que descubra porquê).

Castello Sforzesco

You can’t miss the Castello Sforzesco while you’re in town. Italian for “Sforza’s Castle,” it’s a medieval fortification built in the 15th century by Francesco Sforza, the Duke of Milan. After being extensively rebuilt in the early 1900s, it now houses several of the city’s museums and art collections. Check out a piece from the icon of Renaissance figurative art, Andrea Mantegna, and see the last incomplete work by Michelangelo himself.

You can also see Sforza Castle and the stylish Brera district on the Sforza Castle & Battlements Tour with Last Supper Tickets. This tour will give you an exclusive look at the interior of the castle and a rare opportunity to explore the battlements. Your expert guide will share interesting anecdotes about the area’s past and provide you with expert tips to explore on your own.

Pro Tip: Milan’s museums are free of charge on the first Sunday of every month — if you’re willing to deal with the crowds, that is!
