What to do in Milan?

About the city

Milan is the business capital of Italy.

At the center of waterways and trade routes since medieval times, Milan has been one of the engines of the European economy since the 1950s, with its trade fair organization, Fiera Milano, becoming a dominant player in the European business events industry with all sorts of industry exhibits and professional conventions.

Milan is the city of style and luxury, where business and leisure, sports and culture can be reconciled as in no other city around the globe.

From Scala to Brera, from Duomo to San Siro, Milan has everything that art, food and entertainment can offer to stimulate the senses and the mind.


Milan is rich in museums. Its long literary, artistic, musical and scientific tradition has left behind an impressive number of artefacts that are now housed in important collections. Milan’s Museum network is a testimony to the city’s great cultural liveliness, inclusive of public and private institutions, from church museums to corporate foundations.

Things to see in Milan when the sun goes down!

Discover the city under a different light. Milan, when the monuments light up and the sun sets, the skyscrapers sparkle in the dark and the lights of the clubs and houses are reflected on the waters of the Navigli canals, acquires a whole new charm. There is no shortage of evening tours to discover the city from a new perspective, as several exhibitions and museums are open until late. But it is also nice to walk around the city to enjoy the changing scenery. Get your camera ready and discover the most beautiful places during the evening and night hours in Milan.
