Milan may not have as many classic sights to offer as Rome, Paris or Vienna. However, the northern Italian city has always been an important economic centre. Milan is also a great place for shopping – or window shopping if you give up in the face of the sky-high prices for designer clothing, accessories and furniture.
The Marco Polo travel guide is a reliable navigator through the hectic streets of the city centre. It features lots of information about Milan Cathedral, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, and Sforza Castle. Furthermore, author Bettina Dürr provides useful tips regarding accommodation and dining in the city with its infamously overpriced hotels and restaurants.
Dürr did not just write about Milan. Her guide also informs about ideal destinations for day trips in the Lombardy region such as Bergamo, Mantua and Brescia.
