From Milan’s famous Duomo to their hip neighborhood of Navigli, and not to forget endless shopping. There is a little something for everyone in Milan.
Three days is more than enough time to leisurely stroll through the beautiful city of Milan. I would recommend staying in the city center where everything is walking distance and if not, their metro is quick to get you from point A to B.
