Milan, finding the treasures of a charming city by bike

Two years after the successful and captivating Expo 2015, Milan is attracting more and more visitors, eager to discover the many and unexpected beautiful treasures of a charming city.

Beyond the classic and unmatched attractions, like the Duomo, the Teatro alla Scala and the Castello Sforzesco, Milan has other architectural gems of its glorious past to show. Many other projects, buildings and spaces are taking shape, focusing on the years to come.

And this is probably one the most exciting aspect of Milan: its eye always focused on the future and how things will likely be.

Milan already enjoys a remarkable network of cycle paths already in place, and other sections are planned. The city is completely flat, so biking does not require too much effort; there are many nice alleys where you can wander at your pace, together with other fellow Milanese cyclists.

This makes Milan a top destination for bike-lovers. A growing number of people is choosing the bicycle as a simple way to better understand the mood of a city, with the priceless freedom to move around and to stop wherever you want.

And in a few minutes, you can reach many renowned districts and attractions, giving you a more complete idea of how Milan really is, in its complexity and its beauty.

Santa Maria dei Miracoli presso San Celso ristrutturata

Santa Maria dei Miracoli and San Celso

Even with rainy weather there is a lot to see in Milan, for instance the recently renovated church of Santa Maria dei Miracoli and San Celso.

The church is very significant in the history of Milan and is an architectural gem. Its construction began in the Renaissance, at the end of the 15th century, and was created to host an icon of the Virgin Mary.

During the following century, the church was adorned with the precious marble façade.

The interior houses artworks like paintings and frescos, created by several renaissance artists. Even the atrium and the dome are of great interest.
