Milan, Majesty and Beauty!
On your visit to Milan
, Italy you will certainly notice the magnificent blending of centuries of art and architecture. Once home to the Roman Empire
, Milan is the epicenter of Italian finance, industry, and football. Additionally, Milan is home to exquisite galleries and museums, centuries of breathtaking architecture, and the internationally renowned Milan Fashion Week. Milan is also somewhat of a cultural melting pot due to the various nations which laid claim to the city during its long history; Milan’s former rulers include the French, the Austrians, and the Spanish.
Jubilation will envelop art and architecture enthusiasts during a visit to Milan. The city is home to structures dating back to the Roman Empire as well as those whose construction began in mid-900 A D. The Milan Cathedral is both an architectural marvel as well as a treasure trove of awe-inspiring works of art. To view the breathtaking and inspirational piece “The Last Supper
”, by Leonardo da Vinci, visit the Dominican convent
adjoining Santa Maria Delle Grazie. Between 1494 and 1498, da Vinci
created his masterpiece on the wall of the convent’s refectory.
