Style and taste: there are no better words to describe what Milan really is. Style is about fashion and design, with the Fashion Weeks and the Design Week, whereas taste is about food, with the Food Week events. If you come to visit Milan for the first time, these are the main events you should definitely add to your Milan tour: only by taking part to Fashion Week or Design Week you will understand what Milan is really made of. So, let`s begin a complete Milan tour starting from the most famous event, the Fashion Week.
Born after the New York one, the Milano Fashion Week attracts tourists from all over the world, coming to admire the wonderings of fashion and Made in Italy tailoring art. Twice a year, both for Fall\Winter and Spring\Summer seasons, Milan shows what elegance, style and luxury really are. You will walk through the city districts in a fashionable atmosphere that you can experience only during these two weeks. Woman’s wear is the protagonist of Milano Fashion Week, with the most famous catwalks Milano Moda Donna, Womenswear and Milan SS Woman Ready to Wear. Nevertheless, also man’s wear plays an important role in Milano Fashion Week: Menswear and Milano Moda Uomo should be definitely on your Milan tour list.
Coming to visit Milan is not enough to participate to fashion events. Unfortunately, catwalks are private events you can join by invitation only. Nevertheless, Milano Fashion Tour, a fashion tour operator based in Milan since 2009, gives you the exclusive chance to take part to private catwalks for a unique Milan tour. How?

If you want to explore Milan, there is no better way than doing it during the Design Week. Known also as Salone del Mobile or Fuorisalone, the Design Week starts from Rho Fairgrounds and then it is spread all over the city. Every district of Milan expresses itself by the latest design objects: the entire city comes out with a new soul and this is the rare opportunity to see a new Milan every year. During this event the city is divided into five Design Districts, each one with its own identity: unlike Fashion Week, the Design Week is easy to join. It is enough to walking down the city districts and let be seduced by the new design projects. So, just add it to your Milan tour.
Last but not the least: Food Week. After Expo 2015, Milan has been consecrated as Capital of Food. Indeed, the strong bound between Milan and food culture is ancient: Mediolanum, the Latin name of Milan, means in the middle of plans. Huge and fertile plans surround the city, making Milan and its hinterlands the richest territory in Europe in terms of agriculture. In Italy, the land famous all over the world for the high quality of its food and wine and for the long term food tradition and culture, Milan has become the centre of food innovation.
During the Food Week, eight days in May, you can explore the food culture with events, show cookings, talks and tastings that will add a special flavour to your Milan tour. Moreover, this is the best way to get closer to Italians: joining them for a dinner in a warm spring night will let you discover the Italian way of life.
