Best known perhaps as Italy's economic capital and driver behind the world-famous Italian fashion industry, Milan can sometimes seem frenetic and soulless, but beneath the surface the historic centre is still beguiling.
The centre of the city is marked by the outline of the fairy tale Gothic Duomo, with its impressive display of over 100 spires. From here Milan's streets of elegant boutiques fan out and include the stylish Galleria Vittorio Emanuele.
Leonardo's world-famous fresco of the Last Supper can be seen at the convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie and the immense Sforza Castle is well worth a visit.
