MumAbroad Milan

 

Milan, a metropolis in Italy’s northern Lombardy region, is a global capital of fashion and design. Home to the National Stock Exchange, it’s a financial hub also known for its high-end restaurants and shops. The second largest city in Italy, Milan is a very popular place for expats. The city is home to 1.3 million inhabitants and houses the Italian national treasures Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper, Duomo di Milano, La Scala Opera House and Castello Sforzesco as well as the Italian designers Armani, Versace, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Pucci and Gucci.

 

There are also plenty of opportunities to escape the city. Living in Milan means you are in relatively close proximity to the beautiful lakes in Italy’s north. The four most important lakes are Lake Como, Lake Garda, Lake Maggiore and Lake Lugano. The are offers stunning Alpine scenery, a mild climate, countless resorts, as well as plenty of activities for families. Bellagio, on Lake Como, has been called the most beautiful town in Italy. The lakes are easy to reach from Milan by car or train, making them an ideal destination for weekend trips with children of all ages.

 

Milan has three airports. Linate is the closest airport but is a relatively small airport for domestic and European services. Situated 30km from the city centre, Malpensa is Milan’s main international airport for long-haul flights, and is also the hub of choice for several low cost airlines. Bergamo is the third airport and located 45km north-east of Milan. Although it is the furthest away of the three Milan airports from the actual city centre, tickets to Bergamo are usually cheaper than Linate or Malpensa, and good connections to the city make this airport a good choice, especially for budget travellers.
