As you’d expect from city accommodation, Milan’s lettings are mostly attractive apartments. If you’re seeking a contemporary view, Porta Nuova is filled with recently built skyscrapers, a dramatic divergence from the old city. In contrast, the city’s heart, Duomo, is where you’ll find the majestic and historic buildings. The Brera district houses the arty section of the city, and you’ll find lettings in Chinatown near the Garibaldi train station.Elegant and sophisticated city apartments
Most of the accommodation in Milan is in apartments and there is something for every budget. You’ll find quirky, individual accommodation in the stunning old parts of the town with stylish spiral staircases, marble bathrooms and sloping ceilings. Newly built flats, in contrast, have a contemporary and sophisticated feel. Particular gems look out onto private courtyards and colourful gardens, or have gorgeous roof terraces with potted plants and spectacular views across the city.

As you’d expect from one of Italy’s finest cities, the magnificence of Milan’s palaces, cathedrals, museums and opera houses lifts the soul and makes a trip to Milan a thing of beauty. The Duomo Di Milano, a marble-clad gothic church built over six centuries, and Santa Maria Delle Grazie, a 15th century church which now houses Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece, ‘The Last Supper’ are unmissable.

This gem, lighting up the landscape of Milan, is a testament to the creativity of the city.
The aperitivo is a fine Milanese tradition. So 7-9 pm is most definitely wine o’clock!
