If you only have a day to tour Milan, here is a guide to the essential things to do in this fascinating city.

For starters, take the number 20 tram, which is identified by a large Ciao Milano sign painted on its side. It will give you a well-rounded tour of the city, commencing from the Piazza Castello, complete with English commentary in five languages. Tours can last 45 minutes to an hour, and are held daily at 11am and 1pm.

Afterwards, purchase a combo ticket that will allow you entry to various points of interest: the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana, Museo del Duomo, and the Museo Diocesano. The combo ticket should cost around €12, but is well worth the price and can easily be purchased at the participating museums.

One should also not miss visiting the Teatro alla Scala, which was built in the 18th century. It holds the distinction of being the most significant opera house in the world. Classical music enthusiasts will certainly find a trip to this venue delightful in every sense.

Afterwards, you can unwind and take a stroll along the Piazza Duomo and the adjoining Galleria. Strolling through the neighbourhoods around the area will give you a good glimpse of life as a Milanese. A short walk further along will take you to the Golden Quadrilateral, which is one of the best places to shop in Milan. Magenta, found west of the piazza, is an old residential area, and is now filled with churches and other interesting sights.

A visit to the Brera will then bring you to the various bars and affordable restaurants that you can try out. At the southern end of Milan, one can find the Navigli, another great place to shop for bargains.

For the finishing touch, end your day in Milan by stopping at a café or a local gelateria.
