3. It is also synonym for art, just think at its terrific centuries old cathedral, the Last Supper by Leonardo Da Vinci or the Pinacoteca di Brera, but also at its contemporary art museums: the Prada Foundation, the Triennale, Hangar Bicocca, Armani Silos or Mudec. And what about a visit to the art and brand-design museum, the Campari Gallery, housed in an enchanting Art Decò building where you can also find the collection of the advertising campaigns that made the worldwide history of the iconic “red drink”.

4. It’s the land of fashion and shopping, luxury and design… but also of the capital of the apericena that we recommend experiencing in one of its charming night clubs and bars, especially those situated along the Navigli.

5. New infrastructures will be created before 2026 Olympic Games
