Learn all about history of Milan
Anchored as Italy’s financial powerhouse by big fashion names like Armani, large banks, and a suite and tie working class, Milan is a proud and beautiful modern Italian metropolis. Unapologetically cosmopolitan and luxurious, Milan has it’s fair share of artistic flair with “The Last Supper” housed by the famous Pinacoteca di Brera museum. Milan is a stunning city not only because of the flashy cars, shiny cartier watches or the fashionistas strutting the sidewalks, but also for its gorgeous towers, extravagant La Scala theatre and the ornate central Duomo. You can’t forget that Milan is a center for soccer fans and matches with the oh so famous AC MIlan and Inter Milan!
After soaking in and absorbing all the culture Milan has to offer, you might be curious about its thriving food and drink scene. Milan is located in the region of Lombardy and nearby Milan is the famous sparkling wine producing region Franciacorta, which is considered the champagne of Italy since this wine is made in a similar, traditional method to Champagne’s. In addition to Franciacorta, Lombardy produces a wide array of delicious wines like Nebbiolo from the Valtellina area (the grape Nebbiolo is also found in the world famous Barolo made in the neighboring Piedmont region) and rosè wines- to just name a few of the regions proudest wine productions. In addition to Lombardy giving the world luxury wines, Milan set the stage with drinking culture by inventing Aperitivo which is a food and drink custom of snacking with a glass of wine before dinner time, also similar to happy hour.
