Galleria

Milan’s Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is an iconic landmark which was named after the first King of the Kingdom of Italy, and is considered by many to be a symbol of Italian unity and community. It is also one of the oldest shopping malls in the world.

Sometimes it’s the little things that make this city so significant. The canal in the district of Navigli is criss-crossed by little bridges, one of which is adorned with love locks.

Milan Cathedral isn’t the only beautiful church in the city. Santa Maria del Carmine is a gorgeous and peaceful church in the centre of the city. Built in the 15th-century with a baroque interior featuring detailed paintings and sculptures.

Oh, and did we mention the sky.

buildings

This city sometimes gets confused with which way forests should grow. This “vertical forest” is the brainchild of Stefano Boeri, and combines high-density residential developments with trees in the city centre. These two towering skyscrapers are home to over 900 trees.

If this city wasn’t great already, it is also home to Sforzesco Castle, a 15th century castle, formerly one of the largest citadels in Europe.

The beauty of this city is shy, often the most spectacular places are hidden out of sight for you to discover.

Horse

The art is out of this world. Leonardo Da Vinci’s horse was supposed to be the largest horse sculpture in the world but was never fully finished. However, the horse still towers at 25 feet tall on a marble pedestal.
