Milan

The economic hub of northern Italy's Lombardy is home to more than three million people and is rightfully called a global capital of fashion and design. Strolling through Via Monte Napoleone is a must for every fashionista. After a long day of shopping, it is time for an aperitivo in one of the hip bars and cafés around the Navigli channel. For culture and history people flock to La Scala opera house, the Duomo and the Cenacolo, home of Leonardo Da Vinci's famous fresco "The Last Supper."
