Pension in Milan
Milan isn't as romantic as Venice or as vibrant as Rome, but the world's fashion capital exudes an understated glamor that allows many of Italy's gems to hide in plain sight. At the very heart of the city lies Il Duomo, Milan's gorgeous white and pink marble cathedral. The view of its towering spires as you ascend from the metro station to the cathedral's piazza is nothing short of breathtaking. Just to the left of this staggering sight is the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, a centuries-old shopping center with domed stained glass ceilings and open air arched entryways. The nearby “Fashion Quadrangle" is a series of city blocks which house some of the most prestigious and expensive fashion boutiques in the world. Window displays along these streets boldly announce the outlandish, cutting-edge styles within and are worth a trip around the quadrangle. Of course, Milan's most famous treasure is Leonardo Da Vinci's masterpiece, The Last Supper. However, be sure to plan ahead if you'd like to see it; Saint Mary of the Graces Church, which houses the mural, requires advance reservations to view the painting. Milan is a city best visited with a knowledgeable guide. Wouldn't it be great if one came with your hotel room?
