Take a Virtual Museum Tour of Milan

November 08, 2020
What is there to do in Milan when it's not Fashion Week? A lot of things! One of which is to see the many museums and galleries here. After all, the city is just as artistic as it is glamorous and fashionable. You'll find that a lot of the places that aren't devoted to fashion are just as beautiful and eye-catching. It's a shame though that, since Italy was one of the countries that the global pandemic hit the hardest, a good number of these museums had to temporarily close down. But the silver lining is it's all the more reason to explore them online.

The Duomo

The iconic Milan Duomo isn't just beautiful on the outside. It's also as majestic on the inside! After all, Italian churches are known to be stunning! From its pristine chapels and baroque decor to the solemn serenity of the place, it's no wonder this landmark has become the symbol of Milan. And even if you can't visit the actual cathedral in-person right now, you can still see what's inside by going online. On YouTube, there are countless videos that explore what's inside the Duomo, a few even explain the many designs and decore as well. Though it's not necessarily like actually visiting the place, it will get you more excited to travel there one day!

Sforza Castle

When you think of castles, you think of cities like Vienna or Prague, right? After all, these capital cities are known for their stunning castles and opulent palaces. Very rarely will you associate a city like Milan, prominent for its very urban infrastructure, with castles. Arguably the most historic structure here is the Milan Duomo. But Sforza Castle begs to differ! With its origins dating as far back as the 14th century, this castle-turned-museum is a must-visit in the fashion capital! Especially since it houses masterpieces by the likes of Titian, Tintoretto, Canaletto, and more! Fortunately, this centuries-old museum has joined the 21st-century in offering a virtual tour for everyone in the world.
