Milan Tuly A Traveler's Paradise

From the time your flights to Milan land at the Milan Linate International Airport till you depart on your flights back home, you will be engulfed in a sea of style. Beauty-conscious Milan is a magnet for fashion fans and art lovers. But this doesn’t mean Milan is all about fashion houses and galleries; there is a lot to see in this beautiful city that is masked by its busy external image.

Getting cheap flights to Milan can be quite easy because of its status as the busiest city in Italy. Check for deals on British Airways reservations or Turkish Airways reservations to get cheap flight tickets. Since Milan is a busy commercial center, you have a better chance to get cheap tickets to Milan on last minute flights too. But book your cheap flights to Milan well in advance if you plan to travel in early summer or autumn because these are peak tourist seasons in Milan.


Milan has its share of old and new sights; modern skyscrapers stand besides old monuments and galleries. Historical sites include the Duomo, a massive Gothic Cathedral; the Galleria Vittorio Emanuel, a grand old shopping mall; the La Scala Theater and the Castello Sforzesco. The Basilica of Sant Ambrogio, build by saint Ambroeus, the patron saint of Milan is a lovely ancient building and tells you much about the history of Milan.

Another important attraction here is Leonardo Da Vinci’s painting, The Last Supper; this painting has been preserved, or rather, protected in the monastery of Santa Maria Delle Grazie. The story of how the painting still remains in spite of the dangers it has faced over history is very interesting.

The Gallery of Modern Art, the Museum of Historic Art and the Leonardo Da Vinci National Science and Technology Museum are other must-sees when you are in Milan. Th Galleria Vittoria Emanuele is one of the prides of Milan and if you miss this on your visit to this city; you will be missing a vital part of Milan. From people-watching and window shopping to serious brand shopping, every aspect of modern day malls is complete in this majestic mall built in the 19th century.

The Gardaland in Lake Garda and Aquatica on Via Rivoltana are two amusement parks that are fascinating for kids and adults. You can also take the kids to the Milan Aquarium, Planetarium, Play Planet and the Puppet Theater to make their holiday complete.


Milan’s shopping is world famous; no description of Milan is complete without a mention of the shopping here. A fashion shopper’s paradise; all major brands like Gucci, Prada, Armani, Valentino and Versace have their own major outlets in Milan. Prices too, are quite reasonable and there are constant discount sales and offers throughout the year. Kitchen accessories and linen are also popular buys in Milan.

When you are here, don’t miss a performance at the grand La Scala Theatre; the nightlife too, is pulsating with many happening places like the Frog CafĂ© and El Beverin. With a wealth of things to do and places to see, Milan can be a holiday destination to cherish and remember.
