Milan – Fashion capital of Italy

You might not feel like you are visiting an actual Italian city such as Venice or Florence when in Milan. It has a different atmosphere and feel to it. It is a bustling metropolis and a fashion capital, but at the same time you can still feel that old Italian spirit when you see some great architecture or visit a museum. In many ways it is similar to Rome with its many parks and great attractions but both are a unique experience.
