About the area:
Milan is Italy's business hub and crucible of chic. It is the country's most populous and prosperous city, serving as the capital of commerce, finance, fashion, and media. It's also Italy's transport hub, with the biggest international airport, most rail connections, and best subway system. Milan is all about worldly pleasures. Shopping is of almost spiritual importance. Theatre and cinema thrive, as does the club scene and a slew of enticing restaurants. The spectacular Duomo is one of the world's largest, most striking cathedrals, while Milan's art galleries, many housed in former palaces, are home to a host of significant works that include da Vinci's Last Supper.
