Originally a hidden and quiet city, Milan experienced an unprecedented tourism boom, and is now a capital of design, fashion, and innovation.
Every year, more than 8 million people decide to visit the cathedral, stroll down Via Montenapoleone, and allow themselves to be overwhelmed by the dynamism of this city, which attracts visitors because of the quality and quantity of the events that draw millions every year.
Many events are organised in the Navigli area that attract hundreds of thousands of people every week. Design Week and Fashion week, which are now accompanied by new events such as Food Week, Museum City and Arch Week, are just some of the main events that take place in this city and draw curious visitors from all over the world.
As well as offering unmissable events, Milan is also the proud owner of an enviable artistic heritage: from the cathedral to the Sforzesco castle, and from Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper to numerous museums throughout the area - and let's not forget the excellent restaurants and interesting bars that can also be visited.
Milan may be small, but every neighbourhood has its own unique character, and, as an international capital of fashion and design, there's no shortage of things to see: from the emerging Isola and Tortona areas and Lambrate to the unmissable Brera and Navigli, without forgetting Porta Nuova, City Life, the Alberi library, the Prada Foundation or Armani Silos, the new arrivals that are changing the face of the city. There are plenty of things to see and Dandelion Como is the perfect place to relax at the end of the day.
If you are more interested in natural beauty and lovingly preserved traditions, Ticino offers all this: evocative hikes for all levels around Lake Lugano and the many enchanting villages nearby, such as Melide, Carona, and Morcote. The experience of visiting the cosmopolitan and historic city of Lugano is another reason to draw you over the border.
