Although most known internationally as the capital of Italian design and fashion, Milan is also a city of art, including Leonardo’s and Michelangelo’s.
Therefore, being in Milan for tourism, shopping, or to attend the Furniture Fair and the Fashion Week, it is also an opportunity to visit one of its many museums and art galleries.
In general, most of the city’s cultural venues are located in central Milan and can be easily reached by the public transport network, unusually efficient for an Italian city. Only a suggestion, Milan’s climate is not that of a typical Mediterranean city, and winter’s weather is usually humid, foggy and gloomy; the capital of Lombardy is at its best from spring to early autumn.
