From the eye-boggling Duomo and La Scala to Milan's Renaissance castle For all Milan's size, its main sights are in a surprisingly compact area, many of them concentrated in the area north and west of the Duomo, a good place to begin any visit to the city. Within this area, much of it inside the line of fortified walls that once enclosed the original city, are examples of several centuries of architecture, some of the city's outstanding museums, Europe's (some would argue the world's) greatest opera house, the command center of world fashion and even a castle. A few blocks more lead to Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece, The Last Supper. Between these highlights on everyone's must-see list, walk through tiny narrow streets of the Brera neighborhood, stopping in its cafes and boutiques and pausing to linger in the greenery of a garden that many Milanese don't know about. Don't be afraid to stray from this route to explore a tiny shopping arcade or an interesting side street, returning to continue the tour. Milan is filled with surprises, and half the fun is discovering some for yourself.

Beautiful part of the city. The Milan Cathedral is an absolute gem and masterpiece. The shopping gallery Vittorio Emanuele II is so impressive and beautiful. La Scala is very impressive.
