Walking through...Milan

Milan: the Capital of fashion, design and finance.

Full of attractions, Milan moves from the most traditional to the most modern architecture, hosting the most important brands in the world and making it a city able to meet the tastes of everyone.

But in a city huge like this, how many things can we see in one day

Let’s discover all Milan's main stages, letting ourselves be carried away by its thousand facets. 

Once we arrive at the Milan Central Station, we can reach Porta Garibaldi in a few minutes where we can admire Piazza Gae Aulenti. This is the perfect place to relax without noises and frenetic rhythms of Milan with a long bench where you can relax and listen to the water noise of the fountain in the center of the square.

Close to Piazza Gae Aulenti, we can find two of the most innovative and beautiful skyscrapers of the world: Bosco Verticale. Over its beauty, these skyscrapers give many benefits to the city of Milan creating a humid microclimate which filtrates pollution and fine dust.

Continuing our walk, we can be enchanted by the stores’ windows of Corso Como that hosts many of the most important and trendy international brands of the moment.

We can now move to Castello Sforzesco. We can admire the main facade of Castello Sforzesco and Fontana del Castello from Piazza Castello.  Once we’re passed through Castello Sforzesco, we are in Parco Sempione where we can do a beautiful walk through the lake with turtles and water birds, until we reach Arco della Pace where we can admire several bas-reliefs which tell important events of the European history.

Obviously, we can’t miss the Duomo of Milan! To visit the inside of the Duomo you need to find the ticket, and if you’re passionate about gothic style you can’t miss it! It is also possible to visit the Terrace of Duomo, going up by stairs or by elevator, to enjoy this unique breathtaking panorama.

But if you just want to enjoy the square, you can admire the equestrian monument of Vittorio Emanuele II, with the many tourists and Milanese who meet here daily. Looking to the Duomo, we can find the elegant lounge of Milan to our left: Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II where you can appreciate restaurants, bars and wonderful exclusive boutiques. In the middle of Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, underneath the suggestive iron and glass dome, we can find the Asia, Africa, Europe and America continents represented.

Once we’re out of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II we are in Piazza della Scala, where is hosts the homonymous theatre, Teatro della Scala: famous all over the world. 

From here we can move to Brera district: the artists’ district!
Let us be carried away by its romantic and bohemian atmosphere until we reach the Quadrilatero della moda (the fashion district). We are now in the most fashionable area of the city: between via Montenapoleone, via della Spiga, and Corso Venezia all we can do is enjoy the stores’ windows and go shopping.  

To end our tour, we can walk through Navigli and choose in which bar relax with a good Italian aperitif, admiring Naviglio Grande, Naviglio Pavese and Darsena.

This wonderful city has seen the birth of the most important Italian brands, including our very special Salar that fully reflects the values of this city: fashion, elegance and modernity.
