Milan is home to some of the worlds largest fashion and designer brands. It also offers world famous art from the Renaissance era such as Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper. Serving as Italy’s business capital this city is a hub for transportation and commerce. The different neighborhoods of Milan display the character and history that has grown here over the years.


Zona Tortona

Zona Tortona lights up as the main district for Fashion Week every year. This leads to the development of many classy restaurants and boutiques. Due to the economic crisis of the 1960’s in Italy, many buildings are still in ruin and decay throughout the district. Due to the “tucked away” location of the neighborhood it remains relatively calm and quiet when Fashion Week is not running.
