    Milan Walks and Guides

    Milan Walks and Guides

    by Edward Staiger

    One of the miracles of Milan is how physically accessible it can be. One can easily depend on its network of public transportation (the most extensive and reliable in Italy), but as this book proves – in Milan, one can walk. In walking, one can peruse, one can enter into the city as into a complete five-senses experience.

    This book is divided into four separate walking tours of the city, easily traversed on foot.

    The distance required by the mind just isn’t possible in a quick (or desperate) getaway weekend; Milan’s window-shopping alone – the best that Italy can offer – could take a week or a month. Its history took about two millennia. The sights and splendours of its many museums and churches can actually shock as they come to the tourist as so unexpected, literally, so unheard of.

    It’s finally time to discover Milan.
