Marco Shoes


As a city where the newest fashion trends are created, Milan is the perfect place to shop. There is no visit of Milan for me without a stop at my favorite shoe store – Marco Calzature. You can buy fashionable shoes here of great quality and design for an affordable price. Marco Calzature can be found on several locations in Milan. I never leave without at least one pair – and a big smile on my face.

Brera District

The Brera District is Milan`s center for Design and art. The historic district has always been a focus of artistic and cultural development. In the charming streets of “old Milan” you can choose from a large variety of neat boutiques, restaurants and cafés. Moreover, it embraces various art galleries, museums and cultural centres. 

Piazza del Carmine with Santa Maria del Carmine is a beautiful quiet spot in the Brera District. Next to the church is located God Save the Food – a modern, healthy eatary that gets crowded especially on weekends. Princi Bakery in Via Ponete Vetero serves delicious pastries, foccacias and a selection of homemade dishes. From Pizza, Pasta to meat and seafood, something for every “gusto” can be found here.

  The District of Silence

Quadrilatero del Silenzio – The District of Silence – is one of Milan`s hidden beautiful treasures. Located only 10 min from the  center,  you can discover the quiet side of this city. The peaceful oasis is home to beautiful gardens and ancient villas that take you to a time journey back in history.

The prominent gothic facade of Palazzo Berri-Meregalli is richly adorned with mosaics, paintings and sculptures. In the private garden of Villa Invernizzi, just across the street, a flock of pink flamingos peacefully lives. The Villa is not accessible to the public, but the boundary hedge allows to peep into the beautiful garden. Casa Sola-Busca, famous for its “bronze ear” doorbell, and Villa Mozart, which is fully covered by ivy like a sleeping beauty, are only a stone`s throw away from here.

A Peaceful Oasis

Villa Necchi Campiglio is an example of the urban villa. Although built in the 1930s, the architecture is timeless, with a design that is still considered modern today. The property, which once belonged to the industrial family Necchi Campiglio, comprises a large garden, including a tennis court and a swimming pool. Access to the inside of the villa is only granted with guided tours where you can learn more about the lives of it`s former residents. Enjoy an espresso at the pool of this beautiful estate – and imagine for a second that this is your home.

Since the Roman Empire, Italy has tremendously shaped European culture. Milan is home to many cultural institutions, museums and art galleries. Hosting the renowned opera house La Scala, the city is a major national and international center of the performing arts. Moreover, you can discover the works of the world-famous artists Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci.

Leonardo da Vinci and the city of Milan have a close relation. The traces of Leonardo can be found all over city. Few people know of Leonardo da Vinci’ s contribution to the design of the Cathedral’s Dome and to the Castello. Leonardo worked in Milan for more than 10 years and spent much of his earlier working life in the service of The court of duke Ludovico, “Il moro”.

In 1495 Ludovico commissioned him to paint The Last Supper – one of the most important masterpieces in the world. The fresco is preserved in the refectory of Santa Maria delle Grazie, only a few minutes away from La Vigna di Leonardo. The vineyard, consisting of nearly sixteen poles and over a hectare of land, was a present from Ludovico to Da Vinci. Due to the high flow of visitors and the limited accesses it is strongly advised to always reserve tickets for both attractions.

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele

In the center of Milan, two of the city`s most famous landmarks are located. The pompous Galleria Vittorio Emanuele is one of the world`s oldest shopping malls. Under the impressive glass dome numerous luxery retailers, shops and restaurants have established. The Galleria that is attracting visitors from all over the world is a connection between La Scala and Milan`s gigantic cathedral – El Duomo. The gothic cathedral was built over six centuries and represents Milan`s architectural master piece.
