The Italian City of Milan is well known as a city of fashion. The Teatro Alla Scala is one of the most famous opera houses in the world, and is connected to the Duomo by the impressive Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. The Santa Maria delle Grazie holds the painting, the Last Supper, by Leonardo da Vinci. Alitalia fly from New York-JFK to Milan, as do American Airlines and Delta Airlines. Delta also fly from Atlanta. www.ciaomilano.it.
Sophistication reaches new levels in Milan. The
financial and commercial centre of Italy attracts fashion fundis,
opera lovers, the young, the beautiful and the bold. Shopping,
eating and clubbing is serious business here and it is no surprise
that the city boasts the world's most beautiful shopping mall, the
Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. Equally vying for admiration are the
Milanese icons of La Scala Theatre (Teatro della Scala) and the
Gothic Duomo, one of the world's largest churches. Milan's frenetic
pace surges ahead in its drive towards progress, forsaking the
lengthy siestas enjoyed in other parts of the country.
