About Italy


There are a number of things to do and to see in Milan. Visit the Saint Ambrose basilica, a fine example of pure romanesque style and wander through the medieval streets of the district to the San Lorenzo basilica, with its mosaics of gold. Go to La Sala delle Asse to see the renowned frescos by Leonardo and the very last masterpiece of Michelangelo – The Rondanini Pieta.

Wandering around the merchants square, you will discover traces of the ancient city – from Broletto, the largest and most famous of the medieval public palaces of Lombardy to the Duomo, a fine example of Gothic art.

The most prestigious boutiques are there. You will also find unique jewels created by the most famous name, clothes and accessories to die for, and shoes that are works of art.
