Milanese apartments and villas for your stay in Northern Italy One of the must see places in Milan is the Duomo - the biggest Gothic cathedral in the world. This impressive building has an incredible collection of over three thousand statues and is adorned with 135 spires. The view from the top of the cathedral whilst not for the faint-hearted, is simply magnificent. You can also visit the nearby Santa Maria della Grazie church and see Leonardo da Vinci's famous painting, The Last Supper. This impressive work of art is even more incredible up-close than its many reproductions and will certainly leave an impression upon any art-connoisseur. Continuing upon this cultural adventure, make sure you set aside plenty of time to discover the Castello Sforzesco. The former residence of the Duchy of Milan is one of the largest citadels in Europe, a veritable labyrinth home to 12 museums and a vast array of archives that would require a whole holiday to pore through. Art fans will be overwhelmed by the collections hidden away within this Castello complex. Make a bee-line for the Pinacoteca del Castello Sforzesco. This civic museum is home to an expensive and diverse art collection which boasts famous works by the likes of Mantegna, Michelangelo and da Vinci. Magnifico! Lovers of natural beauty, will enjoy a relaxing trip to lake Como, less than an hour from Milan. Up there, you will be quite close to lake Lugano and Switzerland as well.
