Considered by many an atypical Italian tourist destination. Milan stands out not only because of its historical landmarks but also due to its hyper-modern atmosphere. A versatile city like not many others in Europe with exemplary architecture from many periods: The Renaissance church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, the 19th century shopping arcade known as Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, or the Bosco Verticale are just a few examples.
The city of Milan is one of the top references to European and Italian fashion. Home to all the major design showrooms and an endless round of trade fairs, including Salone Internazionale del Mobile and its ever-popular sidekick, the free Fuorisalone.
In Milano, creativity is big business, and looking good is an art form. Whether you're visiting for Fashion Week or heading off on a business trip soon, at VOCIER, we have curated the best places to make the most of your stay in this magnificent city.
