5 Things to do/visit in Milan, Italy

I’ve Been lots of time on Milan and I have seen some nice places so I decided to make a blog for you to see what kind of nice places are in Milan if you have a plan to visitit.

So this are the 5 things  you should visit in Milan, Italy :

1.Milan Cathedral

Milan Cathedral is the cathedral church of Milan, Italy. Dedicated to St Mary of the Nativity (Santa Maria Nascente), it is the seat of the Archbishop of Milan, currently Cardinal Angelo Scola. The Gothic cathedral took nearly six centuries to complete. It is the largest church in Italy (the larger St. Peter’s Basilica is in the State of Vatican City) and the fifth largest in the world.

2.Sforza Castle

Sforza Castle (Castello Sforzesco) is in Milan, northern Italy. It was built in the 15th century by Francesco Sforza, Duke of Milan, on the remains of a 14th-century fortification. Later renovated and enlarged, in the 16th and 17th centuries it was one of the largest citadels in Europe. Extensively rebuilt by Luca Beltrami in 1891–1905, it now houses several of the city’s museums and art collections.

3.Porta Ticinese

Porta Ticinese (formerly known as Porta Cicca, and during Napoleonic rule as Porta Marengo) is a former city gate of Milan, Italy. The gate, facing south-west, was first created with the Spanish walls of the city, in the 16th century, but the original structure was later demolished and replaced in the early 19th century. The name “Porta Ticinese” is used both to refer to the gate proper and to the surrounding district, part of the Zone 6 administrative division. In the same district there is also a homonymous medieval gate, although in common speech the name “Porta Ticinese” is usually assumed to refer to the 19th century gate.

4. Museo nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia “Leonardo da Vinci”

The Museo nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia “Leonardo da Vinci” in Milan is the largest science and technology museum in Italy, and is dedicated to Italian painter and scientist Leonardo da Vinci. It was opened on 5 February 1953, inaugurated by prime minister of Italy, Alcide De Gasperi.

5.Brera

Brera is a district (“quartiere”) of Milan, Italy. It is located within the Zone 1 (the historical core of the city) and it is centered on Brera street. The name stems from Medieval Italian “braida” or “brera”, derived from Old Lombardic “brayda” (often Latinized as “praedium”), meaning a land expanse either cleared of trees or naturally lacking them. This is because around the year 900, the Brera district was situated just outside Milan’s city walls and was kept clear for military reasons. The root of the word is the same as that of the Dutch city of Breda’s name and the English word “broad”.
