Milan, Italy Travel Guide Last Updated: Dec 2022

Milan is not an obvious tourist city, partly since it’s most famous as a fashion and banking capital, and neither of those is really visible to the average visitor in any meaningful way. Still, this is where you come to see the Last Supper mural and one of the most impressive cathedrals in the world.
