Milan, which was nearly decimated by massive bombing during WWII, has since been rebuilt and is today one of Europe’s wealthiest cities. Milan is widely regarded as a mega fashion center teeming with designer shops, but it also draws many visitors to its surviving world famous treasures such as Leonardo da Vinci’s painting The Last Supper, the La Scala Opera House, the Castello Sforzesco, and one of the world’s largest Gothic cathedrals.
Milan is a fast-paced city in Italy’s northwestern province of Lombardy, between the Alps and the picturesque Lake District. It excels in commerce, shopping, and football. Milan appears less Italian as compared to the country’s largely ancient cities, as it is more of a glamorous city with new architecture and attractions.
