General Information about Milan
Milan is a city in Italy located in the Lombardy region. Due to its population density, this metropolis is one of the most populated places in Italy. In addition, it is considered the economic and industrial capital of the country.
Geographically, Milan is characterized by its great plain, its fertile soils and a great climate, conducive to visiting the city practically at any time of the year.
Although, during the spring and summer, its parks full of green are flooded with beautiful flowers that contrast perfectly with the old and modern buildings, creating a true spectacle to behold.
Something important to note is that Milan is known worldwide as the city of fashion, as this city offers glamor and a cosmopolitan lifestyle to the most chic tourists.
Milan: A Cosmopolitan City
Milan has a great cultural attraction, since this city, founded in 600 BC by the Celts, was inhabited by different civilizations that left their traces in the different buildings that can be seen today.
In turn, the art galleries, the museums, the agenda elaborated around fashion and the nightlife of this metropolis permanently attract artists and personalities from different countries, which contribute to the eclecticism of this sophisticated city.
How Is the Culture in Milan
Eating and Drinking in Milan
Milan's cuisine is an exact reflection of this city. Being one of the most prosperous cities in Italy and the capital of European fashion, its most outstanding dishes show refined tastes and expensive ingredients.
If you want to try one of these exclusive delicacies, we recommend you try the risotto, since the saffron that is used in this preparation makes it stand out from any other risotto in the world.
However, if your budget is a little tighter, don't worry, because around the city center you will find many places where you can try delicious but less ostentatious traditional cuisine, such as the famous minestrone, a kind of rice stew and vegetables.
And you cannot leave Milan without experiencing its famous aperitifs, a custom that consists of accompanying an alcoholic drink, such as the Aperol, the Negroni or the traditional Vermouth, with something to snack on before eating. In Milan, these aperitifs have become so popular that you will even find the “Apricena” offer, in which the cocktails come with an open buffet.
As for desserts, we recommend you try the tiramisu and the Milan ice creams, you won't regret it.
