Milan, given its character of a business city, may not be one of the top favorite tourist destinations in Italy. However it offers tourists a wealth of options, not limited to shopping — major Italy’s designer stores are located there, with its many art, museum, and historic itineraries.
Late November/early December, Milan offers one more chance to combine business and leisure.
Those who have an interest in Italian craft, can take the opportunity to visit “L’Artigiano in Fiera“, the Italy’s top crafts exhibition, attracting thousands of international visitors and exhibitors to the Fiera Milano.
