Milan is the second largest Italian city after Rome, and is home to two of Italy's most famous football clubs, Internazionale and AC Milan.

The city's principal square is the Piazza del Duomo.

The Duomo (cathedral) is a must see on a visit to Milan. The structure is very intricate, although the inside is relatively dark. You can also go up to the top for spectacular views of the city.

The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is an enormous, glass-roofed shopping arcade with expensive caf�s, restaurants, and shops. All part of the price to pay for being in Milan.

Fashion curious window-shoppers will definitely enjoy a walk down Via Montenapoleone.

Leonardo da Vinci spent 17 years in Milan. His famous Last Supper fresco can be seen in the refectory of the monastery of Santa Maria della Grazie.

Leonardo da Vinci's two versions of The Virgin of the Rocks were also painted in Milan -- although they now hang in the Louvre in Paris, and London's National Gallery.

La Scala:
News and history of Milan's Opera House, with a schedule of events. Even if you don't get tickets for a performance, there is a small shop in the opera house where you can buy posters, postcards and other opera related goods.

Key to Milan:
Semi--stylish promotion for the printed guidebook. You don't get the full guidebook online, more like an idea of what's in it with plenty of pop-ups and redirects telling you: The item you selected is not available on the Web.
