The metropolis that finds a perfect and dynamic balance between history and modernity

Amid the busy city life, Milan also cherishes its history and traditions, starting with the church of its patron saint, Sant'Ambrogio, and the Duomo of Milan, sporting its statue of the Madonnina on top. Extraordinary new neighbourhoods such as Porta Nuova and CityLife host world-class skyscrapers such as Bosco verticale (Vertical Forest) and Tre Torri (Three Towers). Be sure not to miss out on a visit to the Quadrilatero della Moda shopping centre, where you can feast your eyes on the stunning shop window displays of the big fashion houses.
