Partake in the tradition of the aperitivo

In Milan aperitivo is considered to be an institution. Your visit will be incomplete if you do take part in the pre-dinner ritual. It was a tradition that was started during the nineteenth century by Gaspare Campari. The reason it was started was to serve a drink that would increase the appetite rather than spoiling it. Even though the tradition is very unique, you can find these drinks in almost every bar.  They are mostly served between 7 PM and 9 PM.

A night out in Navigli District

The perfectly planed Navigil District took nearly a hundred years for construction. The plan of the district was personally inspected by Da Vinci. It is because of the interconnected canals that the city was accessible to many in the world. The Naviglio Grande and Naviglio Pavese are the two famous canals that are visible. You can find a lot of bars and restaurants near these two canals. Roam around in the district during the nights and take a break in the middle and grab some delicious Italian bytes or glass of the finest Italian wines.

Visit the Last Supper

The Last Supper is one of the most famous paintings in the world. The recreation of the scene by Leonardo Da Vinci is considered to be one of his finest works. You might have seen the picture a lot of times. But it cannot come close to the original rendition. The uniqueness of the painting is that Da Vinci used tempera paint which was a very new method that that point of time. The painting was sealed with dried plaster. After the sealing process, an undercoat with white lead was given. It actually contributes to the luminosity of the painting. There were a lot of attempts made to steal the painting.
