Milan is a beautiful city full of things to see and do; however, no trip there would be complete without preparing for and taking the time to see the following wonderful items.
Idroscalo - A man-made lake that was originally designed as an airport for seaplanes, Idroscalo is now a gorgeous park operated by the Province of Milan. This is a great location to participate in a wide range of outdoor and water activities like kayaking, water skiing and horseback riding. If visitors are lucky enough to be in Milan at the right time, they may also have a chance to catch one of their favorite musical acts performing at the park when it is converted to an outdoor venue.
The Last Supper - As one of the most influential and popular frescos in the western world, The Last Supper is also likely Leonardo da Vinciís most famous work of art and is located in the Santa Maria delle Grazie. However, getting in to actually see The Last Supper as there is limited viewing and tickets must be purchased to gain entrance. Tourists to Milan are advised to purchase tickets well in advance of their trip as buying a ticket and seeing the mural on the same day is unheard of.
The Turin Bull Insignia - In the heart of Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, which in itself is possibly Milanís most beautiful mall, lays four insignias representing important northern Italian cities. The insignia for Turin is a prancing bull; however, what makes this specific thing worth seeing isnít so much about craftsmanship or beauty, it is about luck. In place of where the bullís genitals would have been, there is a hole where tourists and locals alike spin on their feet for good fortune. This is a great place to sit and watch people perform their spins or take to try it out yourself.†
Milan From Above - Atop the Duomo di Milano (Milan Cathedral) are massive spires that have inspired visitors for hundreds of years. A short elevator ride inside the Duomo allows guests to actually walk among the spires and view a stunning panoramic view of Milan.
