Milan is a very gay safe city. However, all travelers should take caution with valuables especially in crowded areas.

We loved getting lost in the busy marketplaces, sipping espresso on charming streetside cafes and shopping up a storm in designer stores. In case you need more ideas – here are just a few of our favorite things to do in Milan!

1. The Last Supper

One of the most famous artworks in the world, tickets sell out weeks – or even months in advance – so book in advance if you want to see Da Vinci’s awe-inspiring “Last Supper” – world’s most famous Renaissance mural.


2. Milan Cathedral Rooftop

Enjoy window shopping or pop into the store, just be prepared for some eye-watering pricetag’s. The coffee, however, is affordable and makes for sublime people watching.


Milan is great city. I would need to write a book to cover most (probably not all) attractions in this city. It all depends on your personal preferences and interests. I hope that post could provide you with some ideas. Or maybe trigger your curiosity?

Whatever you do – stay safe and enjoy your travel.
