The Milan Cathedral - A breathtaking masterpiece of the Gothic architecture. Especially the rooftop , where you will discover a whole new world of stone statues ,lace and a petrified garden.
Explore Milan - Interactive map - exists in english and italian . The milano map is not ready yet - try Rome for a great adventure. For the english version - go to "home" and from there switch the language. Than choose Rome or Milan to explore. I'd reccomend Rome as you can see additional info on all the sites by clicking on the green circles ( make sure u don't have a pop-up blocker installed.or it won't work ) Have Fun . Bring a friend along.
The Cathedral of Milan is an incredible masterpiece, especially if you take the elevator to the top,and take a walk among this stone garden of countless statues.They are just cleaning it now,so the facade is hidden.
On the streets - Lovely cafes full of people taking it easy on life.
Delicious light italan cuisine in the small cozy restaurants
Secret gardens hidden on the balconys and rooftops - llittle green jungles
Inner yards behind heavy wooden doors sometimes high as 5 meters
Chicks on high heels on the streets - something I've seen only in Bulgaria so far...
This is a sign wishing you welcome on the central train starion of Milan
Are you ready?
Are you ready to take it easy on your life, walk the streets slowly, no rush and enjoy the spirit of the town?
Are you ready to cross on a red light just like everybody does?
Are you ready for the delicious light mediterranean cuisine that the restaurants are offering?

Are you ready to drive your car around, respecting no rules?
Than you are ready for Milan....
