Art & culture in Milan: the best monuments and interesting places

Besides being the main Italian city from an economic and business point of view, Milan has a strong artistic and cultural vocation developed through its centuries of history. Let’s explore the best places in Milan together!

The architectural heritage is offered not only from the Duomo, the cathedral city landmark and one of the finest examples of Gothic style in the world, but also from the “Castello Sforzesco”, the “Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II”, the “Arco della Pace”, and a considerable number of religious buildings among which the “Basilica di Sant’Ambrogio”, the patron saint of Milan, is the main exponent.

In addition to these places with enormous artistic value, there are several spaces dedicated to shows and entertainment. The famous “La Scala” represents excellence at an international level, but other theaters, like the one dedicated to Giorgio Strehler and the “Arcimboldi” provide a constant cultural supply to the city.

There are also numerous clubs and establishments that offer the opportunity to attend live music events, the most important of which are organized in the Stadium “Giuseppe Meazza” at San Siro.

The areas “Fieramilano” and “Fieramilanocity” offer instead of the appropriate structures for the organization of large fairs and exhibitions.
