Milan, the city hat every fashion enthusiast dream to visit. This is a behemoth city has lot more to offer than just the designer shops. It is a sublime mixture of old and modern culture. Other than checking out the sites, There are a plethora of things that you can do and see in the city. Let’s take a look at few of them.

Milan Cathedral

It is a monumental structure which is famous for its extraordinary architecture. Believe it or not, it took 600 years to complete this cathedral. It had been established in 1386 but was only completed in 1965. The cathedral has a gothic-like architecture. I found the front façade to be excellent. The interior portion is highly decorated and the stained glass windows give an exceptional look to the interior décor. My trip to the city would have been incomplete without visiting this cathedral.

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele

When you walk into the grand gallery, it might give you the feeling that you are standing inside a hall of opera palace or house. It doesn’t at all appear like the shopping mall. However, this is actually what it is. The extravagant and opulent indoor shopping area is unique. I have never come across anything like this. It had been developed in 1877. You will find top-class designer shops in here.

Castello Sforzesco

This castle is centrally located in Milan. It is placed between gardens and grounds. Even though it has been constructed in 1370, the structure still retains its power and elegance. At the front of the castle, you are going to find the large brick walls which are lined by the central guard tower and the battlements. Other than the castle, I also came across some small museums which showcase different artifacts along with the historical facts of the castle.
