About Milan and Places to Visit
For centuries, Milan has been a center for Europe’s influential artists. A fusion of the past and present is reflected in Milan’s skyline. In its modern era, the city’s prominence in the global fashion industry makes it one the most desirable locations in Europe for upscale shopping.
Milan’s museums house some of the most influential art collections in the world, including major works by Leonardo da Vinci. The Gothic brick church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, in the Corso Magenta, built around 1465, is home to Da Vinci’s most famous painting, The Last Supper. Sforzesco Castle was built in 1368. Early in its history, it was held by Italy’s most powerful elite, the Visconti and the Sforza families.
The Castello houses several museums, including a sculpture museum that is home to the unfinished Pietà Rondanini, Michelangelo’s final sculpture. He worked on the sculpture until his death in 1564. For centuries, the sculpture stood in a courtyard in Rome at the Palazzo Rondanini. Another culturally significant attraction in Milan is the prestigious opera house, La Scala (Teatro alla Scala) where the greatest operatic artists and finest singers from around the world have performed. The theatre was inaugurated in 1778 by Empress Maria Theresa of Austria, then the ruler of Milan.
Milan Malpensa Airport (LIMC) is 30 miles (49 km) northwest of Milan’s city center. Empty legs and transient aircraft are extremely popular in the region.
