There's even a trendy canal district lined with boutiques, eateries and artisan booths. There are so many things to do in Milan; you could easily enjoy a week in this city that was once the capital of the Western Roman Empire.


1. Walk on the Rooftop of Il Duomo

The Milan Cathedral is over 650 years old and is certainly one of Italy's largest, most impressive duomos. The architecture is awe-inspiring, both inside and out. Take the steps or elevator to the rooftop terrace for an amazing view of the city, fantastic photo opportunities and close-up looks at the many towers and statues. The cathedral is the heart and soul of Milan, and a sight not to be missed. Go back again at night and see it lit up.
