Though possibly best known internationally as the capital of Italian design and fashion, Milan is also a city of art which is home to masterpieces by artists such as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, among many others.
Therefore, being in Milan for tourism, shopping, or to visit the Furniture Fair and the Fashion Week, is also a good 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, quite efficient for an Italian city.
If you are planning traveling to Milan, please consider that its climate is not that of a typical Mediterranean city, winter’s weather is often wet, foggy and gloomy, and summers are frequently torrid and humid; usually, the capital of Lombardy is at its best from early spring to mid-autumn.
