Berlitz Pocket Guide Milan is a concise, full-colour travel guide that gives you reliable, user-friendly information, alongside vivid photography, on Italy's fashion capital. Milan has been Italy's leading fashion centre for years, not to mention its economic powerhouse, but today it's much more - for style and contemporary buzz, no other city comes close.
From the sumptuous Gothic cathedral, a magnificent architectural wedding cake in the main piazza, to the chic shops and regenerated canal quarter with its hip bars and cafés, we guide you to the best places to visit and things to do in the city. Green initiatives have improved the city's parks, and on experimental 'no-traffic' days, the city centre is awash with bicycles, and birdsong can be heard coming from palatial secret gardens.
To inspire you, we start with a rundown of Milan's Top 10 Attractions, followed by an itinerary for a Perfect Day. The What to Do chapter offers a selection of ways to spend your spare time, from the buzzing nightlife and inimitable shopping to where to get the best coffee.
All the essential background information is here, including an overview of the city's history, and how to book the opera or visit Leonardo's Last Supper. There are carefully chosen listings of the best hotels and restaurants in Milan and an A-Z of all the practical information you'll need.
