At eDreams we like to make your dreams come true and with our easy-to-navigate search engine, finding hotel deals in this Italian city is simple. Milan has a history that stretches back to the Caesars and since then has always been an important cultural focus. It only takes a short stroll around the city centre to see this historic blend reflected in Milan's architecture. Grand Renaissance palaces sit side by side with futuristic buildings by renowned contemporary architects such as Zaha Hadid and Daniel Libeskind. Milan's art galleries have world-class collections while a night at La Scala Opera House is a truly magical experience. Italian design is recognised around the world and Milan is at the root of much of it. See this showcased in the Triennale Design Museum while if shopping is your passion then Italian fashion houses are well represented in the city.

Among the highlights of a visit to Milan, we recommend the Duomo which is fashioned in pink Candoglia marble and the Pinacoteca di Brera, home to masterpieces from Goya, Van Dyck and Rubens. If you're a lover of modern art, spend a couple of hours browsing the futuristic interior and galleries of the Museo del Novecento.  When hunger strikes and you need a break from sightseeing, the cuisine of Milan reflects the city's urban elegance with pastries to tempt you at coffee time and typical dishes to try for lunch and dinner. Rich veal dishes, risotto brightly coloured with saffron as well as herby pasta can be found on the menus of the city's restaurants. So high-quality is the culinary scene in Milan that it comes as no surprise to find that the city has the highest number of Michelin-starred restaurants in the country. If you want to sample the delights of this Italian city, then use the eDreams search engine to find a hotel in Milan that meets your choice of room, dates and extras.

What must I see in Milan?

Milan is a district of distinct neighbourhoods from the opulence of the streets around the Duomo to the grittiness of some of its suburbs. With Milan's efficient transport system of buses, trams and metro, getting around the city is easy so why not stretch your budget by booking cheap hotels away from the city centre and having more to spend on holiday treats. Wherever you choose to book a hotel in Milan, all the attractions of the city are within easy reach. Any visit to Milan should start with the Duomo in Piazza Duomo. If you are staying in the city for a few days, try and plan your visit to the cathedral early in the day before coaches full of day-trippers start to arrive. Then you can take the lift to the roof terrace and enjoy city views uninterrupted by crowds of people.

Whether you're a serious shopper or just enjoy window-shopping, spend some time strolling the arcades of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, one of the most sumptuous shopping centres in the world. If you are watching your budget and are undecided about what to take back as a souvenir of your Milanese trip, then a prettily packaged box of local chocolates or patisserie is perfect. The only trouble is, they won't last long! Get a glimpse into the city's Renaissance past at the Chiesa (Church) di Santa Maria delle Grazie. This is home to Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper, one of his most famous works. In the same piazza as the church is a fine Renaissance house, Casa degli Atellani. Once the home of da Vinci, its garden and vineyard provide a welcome escape from the city heat in summer. In contrast to Renaissance grandeur is Villa Nechi Campiglio, an Art Deco delight with lavish interiors that reflect the comfortable lifestyle of the 1930's bourgeoisie. 

Where should I stay in Milan?

When you have finished exploring the historic centre, head to the more arty neighbourhood of Brera with its quirky stores, galleries and independent boutiques full of elegant Italian clothing and footwear. This is where you will find the restaurants of world-renowned chefs such as Alain Ducasse, so you are definitely going to eat well. Tortona used to be where Milan's industry took place, today its warehouses and lofts are home to creative and cultural workshops and businesses and the headquarters of fashion houses such as Giorgio Armani. While in Tortona, pop into Mudec (Museu delle Culture) to get a glimpse of Milan's art and cultural background. Tortona is also home to Milan's Design Week in April when the best of Italian furniture design is celebrated. Whole streets become the home of pop-up furniture stores. In the evening, sample the nightlife centred along the banks of the Navigli canals, designed by Leonarda da Vinci. This is where the locals gather for pre-dinner aperitifs and snacks and it's the perfect place to spend an hour or two before heading to La Scala for an opera. Whichever of the city's many districts take your fancy, eDreams brings you an excellent choice of great-value hotels in Milan.
