If you know Italy well you'll know that the region of Milan is undeniably one of the most beautiful places to visit. Among the other cities in the surrounding area of Lombardy's capital, Sesto San Giovanni's economic influence prevails throughout northern Italy. This business district, home to companies such as Campari and Alsthom, is an important Milanese center.
While allowing you to enjoy the many charms of Milan, Sesto San Giovanni provides the traveler with a very characterful Italian setting. It is, in a manner of speaking, just a stone's throw from the eternal beauties of Milan's cathedral, known as the "Duomo".
Once firmly back in Milan's city center, the traveler will be keen to head to the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie where they are sure to be incredibly moved by the spectacle that is the Last Supper. Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece provides a direct insight into all the mysticism of Renaissance Italy.
But life in such a vibrant capital, with its unique elegance, can also sometimes make you want to take off. In truth, even a stroll through the gorgeous arcades of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II can leave you exhausted. And this will make you want nothing more in the world than a peaceful refuge, a cocoon of serenity. With its wide, tree-lined streets, its buildings with their ultra-modern and innovative architecture, there's something reassuring about Sesto San Giovanni.
With places such as the Villa Torretta, this city will restore your sense of calm. Amid these rows of arcades, all of Lombardy's seventeenth century prestige lights up the eyes of the visitor. Something magical and Italian reigns here, an old-fashioned, yet very refined, sense of pomp.
If your trip allows it and you still have some energy left, head to the Carroponte, a cultural center for the whole of the Milan area, where you can enjoy a concert in an industrial setting that's been elegantly refurbished.
