Flights to Milan
Milan is fashion, finance and football. It's a modern city that still nods to its past but looks to the future, albeit through slightly batting eyelids, inviting you to explore its treasures for yourself.
If all the world is a stage, there's a special spot reserved for a Milanese fashion runway. Armani, Gucci, Pucci, Dolce & Gabbana and a host of other giants come out to play twice a year during the spring/summer and autumn/winter fashion weeks. Die-hard, wannabe, and I'm-too-cool-for-school fashionistas swarm to the stages, events, after parties and boutiques. Though this creative flair is not limited to fashion – there are museums, galleries and creative entrepreneurs who add to Milan's cultural expression.
It's a city that can feel quite business-like, after all Milan is Italy's financial hub, and extensive bombing during World War Two means there's not quite the architectural romance of other Italian cities. But there are still some stunning historical remnants: The Duomo – the massive Gothic cathedral in white marble, begun in 1386; Saint Maurice – a fully-frescoed Renaissance church; and the beautiful, famous opera house (exactingly restored) La Scala.
To see the full force of football fervour, be sure to get a ticket to watch one of the city's 2 soccer teams – Inter Milan and AC Milan – at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, known locally as 'San Siro'. Rivalry between the teams is fierce and tickets for most games are available both in advance and on the day.
