Monuments Milan

Milan is rich in historical and artistic monuments of the highest value that bear witness to the history of the Lombard capital

Monuments Milan. Discover with us a myriad of relevant monuments in Lombardy. The regional capital proposes plenty of options for cultural tourism that visitors will certainly appreciate. 

One of the most renowned monuments in Milan is the Scala theater, a temple of opera and lyrical performances that should be the first stop when planning an itinerary. A statue of Leonardo da Vinci stands at its entrance and shows the way towards the Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery. Walk through it while admiring its recently restored frescoes, take the walkway on the roof facing the Milan Cathedral, called Duomo by the locals, if you enjoy inspiring urban landscapes.

The experience of visiting monuments would not be complete without sitting by the columns of San Lorenzo, where the new and old parts of the city meet. Tramways pass along the Ticinese and young people populate the streets on summertime. Away from tourist districts, go to the Quadrilatero del Silenzio and search for a house with an ear-shaped intercom, it was made by Wildt and is fully functional.

Tourism in Milan allows you to get to know ancient landmarks like the Sforza Castle, a major attraction in Lombardy. Keep exploring the Metropolis at the Monumental Cemetery in which Milan's notorious children rest.
