A popular historical site in Ferno is Mulino di Ferno - an ancient mill that is currently in a state of ruin. Among the existing mills in the area, this one undoubtedly best represents its times.
Outside Ferno, one of your first ports of call should be the city of Milan. It is the financial capital of Italy and one of the fashion capitals of the world. Milan's city centre consists of nine urban areas, the so-called zones. These are numbered from 1 to 9 and arranged in a circle clockwise around the city centre (Zona 1). Each zone consists of several city quarters (Quartieri). Under the influence of the Dukes of Milan, the city became a nucleus of the Italian Renaissance. Leonardo da Vinci himself worked here for 25 years. Some of his works are in the collections of several Milanese museums. His mural "The Last Supper" in the convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie, is listed as the UNESCO World Heritage Site. However, the most famous sight of the city is undoubtedly Duomo di Milano - Milan Cathedral whose construction started as early as 1386. While in Milan, you should also take advantage of one of the many restaurants in the city in order to enjoy amazing Italian delicacies. These include not only fresh salads with delicious sauces or tasty pastas, but also tender beef with fresh bread, which is prepared on site in most restaurants.
