ABOUT MILAN

Milan is the second largest city in Italy. Located south of the Italian Alps, is home to one and a half million people, and is relatively close to several other popular towns, such as Venice and Florence. A bustling and stylish metropolis, Milan is titled as the fashion paradise of Italy. Luxurious brands suchs as Gucci, Versace, Armani and Prada call Milan home.

Although today it is among the most vibrant cities, Milan was destroyed during World War II and when it was revamped and restored, it rose again turning into a flourishing business capital of Italy. It is now Europe's main hub for trade and industrialization and the capital of fashion, design, music, and business. 

The city of Milan offers a wide panorama of sports facilities aimed at entertaining fans through professional sports and to provide training facilities to those who want to train at a competitive level. Football, or soccer as we refer to it in America, is Italy's beloved sport with two teams using San Siro Stadium as their home field. The city also boasts facilities that hosts a basketball team, hockey team, a race car track, an aquatics center, and a horse racing track to name a few. Milan may be known for fashion and business, but also offers a high-caliber sport scene that is sure to impress any sport enthusiast.
