Milan, the Fashion capital of Italy

Milan is the second most populated city in Italy and also its economic capital, but it is most known to be the fashion capital of Italy and one of the worlds fashion capitals.
Milan is located in the northwestern section of the Po Valley, between the rivers Ticino and Adda, among the river Po and the first relief of the Alps.

If what you are looking for is art and architecture, Milan is a city where you can find Palaces, Cathedrals and Churches, theatres and historic commercial galleries, all places full of history. Among the places you can visit, you have the Castello Sforsesco, which was the residence of the Viscontis and the Sforzas in the time when Milan was one of the most important cities of medieval Italy.

One of the most interesting places of Milan is the Duomo, the great Gothic cathedral of Milan, that has almost 2000 marble statues and is considered one of the biggest cathedrals in the world. The cathedral was built the years 1386 and 1577.
Another place to visit in Milan is the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, a covered galleria that connects Piazza del Duomo with the famous opera house La Scala. The Galleria is a place full of restaurants and luxury shops such as Prada, Gucci and Louis Vuitton.
Milan has a very long history associated with Fashion, and one of its main attractions is the Milan Fashion week, world fashion event that takes place twice every year, in February-March, the Spring/Summer event and in September-October the Autumn/Winter event.
Most of the major Italian designers have their headquarters in Milan, such as Valentino, Gucci, Versace, Prada, Armani, and Dolce & Gabbana.
So if you are looking for a major city that can combine Art, Architecture, and Fashion, Milan is the one.
