Travel and Culture in Lombardy
Milan is a big city in the North of Italy which is rich in activities and culture, but it is also a chaotic metropolis, where different cultures, needs and the Italian spirit mix up together.
Milan is, after Rome, the most densely populated Italian centre, with 1.302.000 inhabitants and it is the seat of the most important industrial, commercial and bank activities of our peninsula.
The fastest means to reach Milan is certainly the airplane and, in fact, the city has got two airports: Milano Malpensa airport and Milano Linate airport. This one has the characteristics of a real city airport, since it is very close to the urban settlement inside the town.
The railway and motorway routes run parallelly and connect South Milan with the most important Italian chieftowns as Rome, Florence and Naples (through the A1 motorway and the Milan-Naples railway line) and North Milan with Lugano and Switzerland (Milano Laghi motorway).
