Milan is the absolute behemoth of the city and has the largest metropolitan area in Italy, with 1.3 million inhabitants and 3.2 million in the larger area surrounding central Milan. Some type of human settlement has been present in the Milan area for thousands of years, and the archeological findings date back to 222 BC. However, at one point, Milan was the capital of the Western Roman Empire. Throughout the antiquity, the Middle Ages, and later, Milan prospered greatly because of its dominant position in mainland Italy. While the city was devastated during the Second World War, it recovered and saw a massive economic boom that was responsible for its significant growth and expansion. It is easy to reach and going around the city in a tour bus is a flexible and comfortable way to explore Milan.

1. Milan Cathedral
Milan Cathedral is a truly magnificent structure, renowned for its exquisite architecture, and has taken more than 600 years to complete. Situated in the center of Milan, in Piazza del Duomo, the cathedral was built in 1386 but not officially completed until 1965. In an Italian Gothic style, the front façade of the cathedral is absolutely impressive and adorned in numerous towers, sculptures and decorations. The interior is just as decorative and includes several stunning colorful stained glass windows; in addition, between the central columns, there is a wonderful display of artwork and some finely detailed sculptures.

The Duomo of Milan is not yet another cathedral. It's the most significant symbol of the city in the middle of it all. Construction on this magnificent Gothic cathedral started at the end of the 14th century and lasted hundreds of years (it is not uncommon to see scaffolding on the façade or on the back of the church as construction is still underway). Although there's plenty to see inside the cathedral, a visit to the top – via stairs or an elevator – is an absolute must to see Milan's evolving skyline, with the old and the modern coming together.

This church can be located on the Corso Magenta and is situated on the opposite side of Milan to the Duomo.
