Milan is a great starting point for exploring Northern Italy. While Milan itself has a few great tourist attractions, exploring the area surrounding this bustling city will give you a much greater appreciation for this area of Northern Italy.
We arrived in Milan on a very hot July evening as we started our Northern Italy tour with our family. The following day we took on this very busy and large Italian city. Milan is the industrial and financial capital of Northern Italy and as such it is a city full of life. For the tourist, however, Milan is not very exciting. Except for a few extraordinary tourist attractions, Milan is mostly an uninteresting European city. Come along with me on a free walking tour of Milan, Italy.
