You could easily spend a week in search of high culture, or checking out Milan’s young designer scene, or spend days window shopping – this city has many facets and each of them is worth a visit in itself. But you can also do a little of everything, because distances between attractions in Milan are short. From the Scala, one of the best opera houses in the world, it is only a few steps to the Via Monte Napoleone, where the top labels have their shops, or to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, the most beautiful shop window in town. The Scala’s other exit leads to the Cathedral Square, the historic and contemporary centre of the city. You can easily explore Milan on foot. Most of the destinations are less than half an hour away from the cathedral, including the creative quarter around the Via Tortona in the southwest or the Corso Cosmo in the north, with a very lively nightlife. The roads take you past old buildings and modern constructions where time and wars have created gaps, and also past numerous building sites. Milan is a city that does not stand still. The town continues to develop as it has done for two millennia, for example with new high rise blocks at the Porta Garibaldi station, with the expansion of Milano City-Life at the old exhibition grounds, or with the building site for the World Exhibition Expo 2015 in the northwest of the city.
