Milan: Where music & fashion go hand in hand

Milan is a businesslike, modern city whose history goes back over 2 500 years. Due to wars through the ages, Milan has been partially destroyed and rebuilt 3 times, resulting in the city not having much to show for its survival. Today, it is the place to experience Italy at its most stylish.Beautiful sights worth seeing include the Cathedral (Duomo) and the Piazza del Duomo (where Milan's many worlds converge), the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele (Italy's oldest and most elegant shopping mall), the La Scala Opera House (where Verdi's Otello and Puccini's Madame Butterfly were first performed), the Museo Teatrale alla Scala (which houses memorabilia of the opera world including original scores by Verdi and Lisztís piano), Palazzo di Brera (for art-lovers) and the Via Monte Napoleone (the most elegant shopping street in Milan).
