Milan (Cadogan City Guides Series)

Milan (Cadogan City Guides Series)

by Dana Facaros, Michael Pauls




Milan takes style very seriously. Once the haunt of Leonardo da Vinci and the swaggering Sforza dukes, today it is home to the world's swankiest designer label shrines. Alongside one of Italy's most impressive hoards of art, you'll find a trove of sumptuous Baroque churches, palazzo-lined streets, and stylish new warehouse restaurants, clubs and jazz bars.
Personal recommendations and insider knowledge help you find the best of the city, from the winding lanes of the Brera to the chic shopping streets of the 'golden grid'.
60 hotels, 100 restaurants and 95 bars, plus clubs, music venues, opera and theatre are all personally reviewed.
You will also find 20 detailed maps, plus 8 pages of full color maps with grid-references to help you find every sight and recommendation in the guide.
There are also guided walks and itineraries that take you on a haute-couture extravaganza and through the city's medieval canals.
