Milan Travel Guide-tokyo hot n0476

Travel-and-Leisure Milan is a place of contrast and culture, poverty and incredible wealth and so you would think that it is just like any other major City but then if you did that you would be wrong – Milan is different. Milan is the second largest City in Italy and the richest, and without any shadow of a doubt the home of international fashion. Which makes Milan a bustling busy place, but not in a bad way, Milan is fashionable, fun, fast and furious. And it gets better, Milan is also achingly attractive in fact some say that Milan is a cross between sublime Venice and artistic Rome but with one key difference, Milan is not dependant upon tourism for its in.e. Milan is the home of most of Italy’s major industries and the Italian Stock exchange and so tourists feel less pressured strolling the streets and there are fewer tacky tourist attractions, because the City doesn’t depend upon your Dollar, Pound or Yen to survive and neither does its people. So what is there to see in a place that isn’t actually geared to fleece the tourist at every turn you ask yourself? Well the answer is that there is so very much to see and here is just a small taste. The peerless La Scala Opera House, the incredibly elaborate Cathedral, the Castello Sforzesco and the wall painting by Leonardo da Vinci the Last Supper, which even though it was bombed in the second world war is still in one piece. And of course Milan is probably more famous for fashion than anything else. So any brand that is a brand calls Milano their home and these brands include Gucci, Versace, Armani, Dolce & Gabbana and Prada. Milan is where you can not only catch a glimpse of these elegant fashion houses’ corporate headquarters, in the wild so to speak and gawp at their pencil thin employees, you can do so much more! You can go shopping in the fashion houses’ stores, where you will find the very latest creations at very creative prices, but if your budget won’t run to more than three noughts for a scarf well there is hope for you yet. Because in the trs chic Quadrilatero d’Oro, or Golden Square to us mere mortals, you will find last year’s label bargains, designer label seconds and better still emerging brands who haven’t yet quite mastered the art of adding so many naughts to their price tags. On the other hand if you have .e to Milan to just chill then there is no better place than the river side area known as Navigli. There is probably nowhere in the world more restful than to sit in a Canal side caf, restaurant or an old fashioned ice cream shop know locally as a Gelaterie and just savour the atmosphere and aromas. In front of you is sparkling clear blue water with brightly coloured boats moored to the causeway, and around you are Italians doing the one thing that they are most famous for – eating. The smell of shell-fish cooking quickly with White Wine and Garlic gets all mixed up with the mouth watering aroma of Pure Vanilla Ice Cream made the way only Italians know how and all of this is ac.panied by the glorious laughter that greets you as soon as the Milanese stop smiling at you. Milan is City content with itself, and without too many pretensions once you get away from the Quadrilatero d’Oro of course, and that makes it a great place to visit. In August Milan is pretty empty and there is a good reason for that the locals go on holiday somewhere cooler because August is hot, so if you shop around for an hotel it is likely that you will be able to book a top hotel at a very attractive price. The best places to look for such a great deal, or indeed a hotel at any time of the year would be a website that offers price .parison between hotels; a good example is be BookingSpot. So be sure and make Milan top of your list of places to visit it will be somewhere you talk about for a long while after you visit it. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
