Duomo di Milano Apartment
Piedmont and Lombardy - Milan
Duomo di Milano Apartment – Milan
3 Bedrooms – Jacuzzi-Pool
Location and Surrounding Area. The amazing Duomo di Milano Apartment is set right in the heart of chic Milan, just a stone's throw from the famous Duomo Piazza and principal shopping streets. The city is one of the world's major players in terms of fashion and design and is home to magnificent works of art, historically important buildings, designer shops, hip bars and restaurants and an achingly trendy nightlife.
The main piazza, Piazza del Duomo, is just around the corner from the apartment and is arguably the most popular people-magnet in the city. It lies pretty much in the centre of Milan and although it is encircled by some incredible buildings, it is dominated by the gothic, white-marble facade of Milan Cathedral. Not to be missed is a visit to the rooftop terraces of the cathedral from where you'll not only get an amazing view of the city but you'll find yourself surrounded by the thousands of spires that decorate the building.
The spectacular Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II to the left of the cathedral is known as the Salon di Milan and is full of elegant cafés and designer boutiques. There are often some wonderful artistic performances here and nothing beats a relaxing morning spent sipping coffee and watching the world pass by.
The convent Santa Maria delle Grazie contains one of the more awe-inspiring works of art - Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper. It is in the refectory of the convent. The church itself is one of Renaissance art's most important testimonies and has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List for decades.
Milan is served by two international airports; Malpensa and Bergamo. Both are about an hour's drive from the city and are well-served by both taxis and public transport. There is plenty to see and do outside of Milan; celebrity-studded Lake Como is also about an hour away and the Alps are within easy reach of the city.
