Milan is the second biggest city in Italy and every year attracts thousands of tourists and locals. The 14th AIC Conference will be held at the historical Ca’ Granda building, located in the city center.
The city is divided into different neighbourhoods that cater to different tastes and needs. We suggest renting an accommodation located near the centro storico area, so as to quickly reach the conference venue and to have a chance to easily visit the city.
Here is a short list of the neighbourhoods we recommend for making your stay in Milan enjoyable:
Duomo: this is the most famous district, characterised by the proximity to the Duomo cathedral. In this area, there are many accommodation options that tend to be rather expensive. One of the best areas to stay in Milan and a popular choice for tourists.
Brera: the Brera district is situated next to the Duomo area. Here you can find examples of contemporary architecture, traditional shops and luxury retailers. This area includes the famous Pinacoteca di Brera and the correlated academia.
Sempione: this district is located north of the Duomo area. This is a good place to stay if you want to explore the “real Milan”. Castello Sforzesco and its big park are located close-by.
Other three really nice neighbourhoods are the Navigli area, Porta Venezia and Porta Romana. Navigli is the youth and partying district, near the remaining ancient canals. Porta Venezia is another interesting city district, near Giardini Pubblici, one of Milan’s best parks, and still home of working-class people. Porta Romana is located outside the centro storico but is a lively and young district.
