MilanItaly’s northern capital awaits!
TILO is undoubtedly the most convenient way to get to the capital of Lombardy. Its excellent connections and cross-border regional tickets take you to one of Europe’s biggest cities.
Once you arrive at Milan Central Station the metro is a short walk away, allowing you to travel quickly to all parts of this great city.
So what would we recommend?
Start with Piazza Duomo and the historic centre of Milan. The cathedral is Italy’s largest Gothic building, and in addition to numerous artworks it also contains an area where archaeological digs brought to light the remains of several early Christian baptisteries.
The wonderful Sforza Castle and adjacent Parco Sempione are not far away. The castle, an ancient defensive fortress, is currently home to Milan’s civic museums.
Milan also hosts one of the most famous works of art in the world, Leonardo Da Vinci’s The Last Supper. Located inside the refectory of the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, the work was commissioned by Ludovico Sforza, known as The Moor.
The Leonardo Da Vinci Science and Technology Museum is one of the city’s most fascinating museums. It contains models and drawings of the machines invented by the genius from Florence, as well as a large selection of cars and aircraft, all with numerous interactive displays.
