Milan is the biggest city of the North and the second largest city in Italy. It is also the capital city of Lombardy and a huge industrial hub. It does not mean, though, that tourists have nothing to look for here - quite to the contrary, industrial plants are located on the outskirts, while the city centre is a wonderful neighbourhood, full of splendour and affluence, historic sites, and cultural centres. Milan has a population of nearly 1.5 million.

It is a city of parks and greenery, mostly associated with soccer. Milan is said to be the Italian, and even world capital of fashion - and not just because of the fact that the most famous fashion houses are based there, but also because of the emphasis its citizens put on looking good.
