Italy's capital of fashion and finance, Milan is centre of Italian business and thus one of the wealthiest and most expensive cities in Europe. An influential city of style and sophistication, it’s one of the country’s most multicultural and diverse cities.
Milan’s neighbourhoods are arranged in a circle around the Duomo. For an exclusive home in the centre of it all, luxury homebuyers can opt for the exclusive apartments in one of the several Liberty-style palazzos by the Duomo, or right by the cathedral and symbol of Milan. For a touch of glamour, opt for an apartment in the ‘quadrilatero d'oro’ (golden triangle), which boasts a concentration of high-fashion boutiques and famous bars visited by the celebrity jet-set.
For a more artistic and bohemian ambience, the wealthy Brera district, just north of the Duomo has many stores, restaurants and luxury apartments within the old medieval walls. Brera is characterised by calm, pedestrianised streets, refined cafes and numerous art galleries.
Homebuyers looking for larger properties should head to the residential areas of Cadorna, Conciliazione and Sempione where you can find historic palaces and elegant homes.
