CWT Leisure: Milan is full of surprises

Milan has shot straight to 6th place in the ranking of the top 10 destinations for meetings – and with good reason: The north Italian city blends history, culture and Italian flair with the atmosphere of an international metropolis. Milan is the capital of fashion and design, as well as an important economic hub with the stock exchange, high-end restaurants and luxury designer stores.

Most people therefore spontaneously associate fashion and business with Milan. But culture and nightlife? Yes, there is plenty of that here too: 2,500 years of history, an unbelievable wealth of artworks, and of course imposing religious buildings like the cathedral and countless churches. But night owls are also spoilt for choice, with more than 500 pubs, cafés, bistros, and bars with live music, as well as 50 theatres and 100 clubs.

And let’s not forget all those delicacies “alla Milanese”. Milan’s cuisine is justifiably extremely popular and much more than your typical pasta and pizza dishes: Risotto alla Milanese, for example, made with saffron, is a creamy, golden treat. Or Cotoletta alla Milanese that is reminiscent of a Viennese veal schnitzel but – as the name says – comes on the bone. Or Ossobuco and Piccata, both “alla Milanese” of course, and extremely delicious.
