Milan/North

While the Centro Storico is the unquestionable heart of Milan, it is the North of the city that is its hub. Here you will find two most important railway stations - the imposing Milano Centrale and busy Porta Garibaldi - as well as the ever-growing array of office towers that make up Milan's modern skyline, housing the headquarters of companies that make Milan Italy's economic capital.

Though much less tourist-oriented than the Centre, it is a part of the city most tourists arriving by train or bus simply cannot miss because of the location of the city's transportation hubs. And while you are already there, it is worth exploring, as it actually has a lot to offer.
