Grande Milano, or Greater Milan, is the urban area surrounding the city of Milan, the capital of Lombardy in Italy. This guide covers the locations surrounding Milan that fall into the boundaries of the provinces of Milan as well as Monza and Brianza under the administrative split of Lombardy.
One can assume that all of the towns around Milan are just bedroom communities providing the big city with extra labour force, this is very much not the case with Grande Milano. Many of the localities have their own unique character and history, with town centres full of architectural heritage and much to offer in terms of culture and sightseeing. As most are within half an hour of Milan, extending your visit to the city with day trips may enrich your experience exponentially.
