Live the sensory experience of a dinner in one of the many Michelin star restaurants or go clubbing with your mates.

This area is close to Milano Biccoca University and several student dormitories / student facilities. The city center and the main train station are 15 minutes away by subway.

Milano

Sightseeing 

Immerse yourself in the Italian city of the future starting from its long history.

While every major city in Italy offers a wide range of must-see attractions, no metropolis mixes ancient and modern better than Milan. This intersection of world-class art, high fashion, and stunning architecture will help you understand how Italy’s past continues to influence its present.

Leonardo da Vinci’s legacy is entwined with the history of Milan. The multifaceted polymath lived there for much of his life, leaving behind masterpieces like The Last Supper as part of the city’s heritage. The da Vinci Codex Exhibition and numerous Flemish and Italian masters, including works by the likes of Caravaggio and Raphael can be admired at the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana and Brera Art Gallery.

If there’s one attraction that represents Milan, it’s the stunning gothic cathedral, the Duomo di Milano (don’t miss the walkable rooftop and enjoy the amazing view of the city!). If opera music is your passion, take a visit to the La Scala museum and book in advance an unforgettable concert. 

Art and design lovers will also be satisfied by many art galleries and museums (Castello Sforzesco, Museo del Novecento, La Triennale, MUDEC, Fondazione Prada are just examples of the choices you have to learn the most of the Italian art and history).  

Milan hosted the World Expo in 2015 and this huge event is still transforming the city nowadays. Many archistars, like Zaha Hadid and Peter Libeskind, designed amazing buildings and towers, changing Milan skyline and neighborhoods. Among them, you definitely can’t miss Stefano Boeri’s Bosco Verticale (the Vertical Forest Tower that shortly became a new symbol of Milan).

Things to do

In Milano something big is always going on!

Milan’s agenda is a rich mix of culture, fashion and colour! This vibrant atmosphere will add a special taste to your language experience and will give you a comprehensive Italian experience.  

Four times a year (in January,February, July and September) Milan hosts Milano Fashion Week, the event is a worldwide sensation and turns the city into a city-wide catwalk!

Another huge event that brings people from all over the world is the Milano Design Week and the “Fuorisalone”, this spontaneous festival of design, art and culture outside the International Furniture Fair. Hundreds of events of all sorts make it one of the best times to be in the city (April).
