Visit Milan in 3 days: the most beautiful things to see
Milan is a city rich in art and culture that nourishes both mind and body. It offers many attractions and opportunities. Below, we recommend what not to miss during your weekend in Milan.
If you’re in Milan for a few days, a visit to the Cathedral is a must. It’s a work of architecture rich in Gothic details, including the famous golden Madonnina, a reference point for locals and tourists alike. A stone’s throw away is the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II – the so-called “Milan’s living room” – which surprises with its glass ceiling and black and gold shop signs.
La Scala Theatre Museum
Born from the collection of the antiquarian Jules Sambon, it preserves the memory and footsteps of those who have trod the stage of this opera house. A place of rare beauty, commissioned by Empress Maria Theresa of Austria.
Brera Art Gallery
Visiting the Pinacoteca is one of the most exciting things to do in Milan. It houses the most important collection of Italian paintings from the 13th to the 20th century, the result of the Brera Academy’s cultural project.
It is almost an open-air museum and designed in the style of English gardens. A huge green area built at the end of the 19th century, right next to the Castello Sforzesco.
Museo del Novecento
A selection of over 400 works from the 20th century exhibited inside the Palazzo dell’Arengario and the Palazzo Reale. A fascinating experience that should definitely be included in an itinerary of a few days in Milan.
