The Dante Alighieri Italian School of Milan is located in the heart of the international capital of Italian fashion, music, design and finance. Milan offers a number of interesting agreements to fully enjoy the countless opportunities provided by the city.
Here are 5 things to do in Milan if you enroll in our language courses:
After the lesson, if you fancy some shopping and parties, a short walk away from the School, you may easily get to Corso Como. It is one of the most famous streets of fashion in Milan.
Few steps away from Corso Como you may observe the amazing skyscrapers of Gae Aulenti square and the pictoresque Vertical Forest. The Vertical Forest has been awarded as the most beautiful and innovative skyscraper in the world.
Thanks to our cooperation with the FAI, you may take part in a multilingual guided tour of the Villa Necchi-Campiglio, a historic house of the famous “houses-museum” network in Milan. Afterwards, you may visit the Palazzina Appiani, a distinguished visitors’ gallery designed by Luigi Canonica to host Napoleon’s family. You may notice that it is a neoclassical masterwork in the heart of Sempione Park.
If you are in love with music, the Symphony Orchestra of Milan Giuseppe Verdi will offer you a very rich list of programs. You will be able to listen the music of the main classical composers or, according to your personal taste, jazz and tango. Click here to discover the discounts reserved for our students.
Furthermore, in the very centre of Milan, few meters away from the Teatro alla Scala, you may visit the “Gallerie d’Italia”. The architectural ensemble is mainly made up of gardens, courtyards and buildings designed by the most famous Italian architects. Here you may observe precious works from the last two centuries of Italian art history in a multilingual guided tour.
The tour can only end with a walk by the Navigli, the coolest area in Milan. By the Navigli you will find some restaurants, bars, shops and artists’ studios. A few steps away from the Naviglio Grande, you may purchase photos of the old Milan in the studio of our friend Lars. At the end of the day, you will be able to relax on the Naviglio Pavese in the Pizzeria Trattoria Luna Rossa. Here you will taste a wide selection of pizzas and typical dishes of Italian cuisine!
