What else to see in Milan during the Artisan Fair?
Milan during the Christmas holidays is even more beautiful than the rest of the year. Visiting the 2018 craft fair can also be a good opportunity to explore it better. We certainly recommend going to see the great traditional sights: the Christmas tree of the gallery, next to Piazza Duomo; the festively decorated canals, the Christmas markets and the bright streets of the center. Corso Buenos Aires is definitely the favorite destination for shoppers, but it is also impossible to miss the offers of the Milano City Life shopping mall, in the city center, and the shopping center of Arese, one of the largest in Europe, in the immediate outskirt of the town and easily reachable in a few minutes thanks to the efficient public transport.
