Things to see in Milan

Milan is increasingly becoming a tourist as well as a work destination. Since the 2015 Expo, interest in this city has been growing and below we list some of the things not to be missed during your stay at the Hotel Delizia.


Duomo Santa Maria Nascente is its full name. Built in 1386 by Gian Galeazzo Visconti, it represents the heart of Milanese spirituality.
Definitely a starting point for a visit to the city by those coming for the first time and a hub for almost all of Milan’s tourist attractions.
From an architectural point of view, the Duomo represents a precious testimony of the Lombard Gothic and is the largest church in Italy (we do not consider St. Peter’s as it is located within the Vatican State)
Some curiosities, over 3000 statues have been erected between inside and outside, depicting secular personalities such as Dante Alighieri, Vittorio Emanuele II and even the boxer Primo Carnera and prophets and martyrs from the Old and New Testaments.
The 135 spiers that adorn the exterior of the Cathedral certainly stand out, with the Relic of the Holy Nail kept in a shrine at the top of the main apse, they constitute two of the most fascinating elements of the Milan Cathedral.

Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery

Next to the Duomo and the square of the same name, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II gallery opens.
Elegantly decorated and recently restored, it represents the ideal place to take a selfie and go shopping among the boutiques of the major high fashion brands or have breakfast in one of the most elegant historic cafés in the city.
The gallery designed in 1865 by the architect Giuseppe Mengoni is one of the “stages” of the Milanese star system and showbiz. In short, there are those who come to look and those who come to be looked at. Always beautiful, during the Christmas period, according to many, it turns into the most “in” place in the city.

Quadrilatero della moda

We know that in Milan it is impossible not to go shopping and the so-called “Quadrilatero della moda” is the most iconic place where you can do it, via Montenapoleone, via della Spiga, via Manzoni, via Sant’Andrea are the temple of prestigious boutiques among the which we find (at the time of writing) Armani, Prada, Luis Vuitton, Valentino, Gucci, Krizia, Dolce & Gabbana, Moschino, Chanel, Versace and many others.
We are aware that shopping in this area is not for everyone, but a concentration of brands like in the Fashion Quadrilatero is difficult to find anywhere else in the world and makes this place one of the most important in the fashion field to be able to preview the styles that will be the most popular.

City Life

CityLife is the latest project in chronological order to have transformed the skyline of Milan, inaugurated during Expo 2015. The three skyscrapers by Hadid, Libeskind, Isozaki are clearly visible from many areas of the city. Around the three towers stands the luxury CityLife district, a harmonious ensemble of residential condominiums with sinuous shapes and office buildings, surrounded by an exclusive shopping center the “City Life District” and a large green park.

Sforzesco Castle

The Sforzesco Castle is located not far from the Duomo and is certainly an obligatory stop on a visit to Milan and like the latter its construction is due to Gian Galeazzo Sforza.
Ludovico Maria Sforza, known as il Moro, gave great prestige to the Milanese fortress by calling artists of the caliber of Leonardo da Vinci and Donato Bramante to his court, but the passage of the years of the fortress was not always peaceful, in fact in the centuries from the 16th to the 18th the castle passed through a very turbulent phase, passing into French, Spanish and Austrian hands.
Coming to the present day, there are two reasons why the Sforzesco Castle is one of the main tourist attractions in Milan:
– The first is because, right behind it, there is the beautiful Sempione Park, an oasis of peace in the city centre.
– The second reason is the presence, inside the building, of various museums such as the Museum of Ancient Art, the Museum of Musical Instruments, the Prehistoric Museum and the Egyptian Museum.

Brera Art Gallery

Created by the artist Antonio Canova, the Brera Art Gallery features the statue of Napoleon Bonaparte in the internal courtyard. depicting the appearance of the Roman god Mars, celebrating not only his qualities of conquest but also his role as a civilizing hero. But why Napoleon? Inside the Palace there are hundreds of paintings from the Middle Ages to modernity stored as a warehouse by Napoleon, effectively donating to the city some of the greatest masterpieces of Renaissance art. Just to mention a few, without claiming to be exhaustive: Giovanni Bellini’s Pietà, Andrea Mantegna’s Dead Christ, Raphael’s Marriage of the Virgin and Caravaggio’s Supper at Emmaus. In short, the Brera Art Gallery is another obligatory stop on a visit to Milan.
