AC Milan vs. AS Roma is much more than football. As in many Mediterranean countries, the two Italian cities enjoy a unique and passionate character. With a vast range of cultural and leisure activities, one finds it difficult to choose where to spend the holidays, whether in Milan or Rome. Opponents, let’s begin!


Let’s start with the cultural offerings of each city, which represent great importance in the tourist sector. In this case the Italian capital is the winner without a doubt. Although Milan offers amazing museums, including the famous Brera Pinocateca (Italian art from the fourteenth century to the twentieth century) or the prestigious Poldi Pezzoli Museum (with masterpieces by Sandro Botticelli, Antonio Pollaiolo, Giovanni Bellini), Rome wins this round, because the whole city is considered an oudoor museum. The Eternal City is full of history and offers you a wide variety of museums – many of them are the most important in Europe. Do not miss a visit to the Vatican Museums (the largest art collection of the Roman Catholic Church) or the National Gallery of Modern Art (with works by Vincent Van Gogh, Wassily Kandinsky or Piet Mondrian), to the Borghese Gallery and other wonderful museums.

After having visited all these museums, why not rest a bit in one of the stunning parks of the cities? Both Milan and Rome offer places that are havens of relaxation and wellbeing. Whether in the Sempione Park, in the Forlanini park, in the Lambro Park, the Naviglio Pavese Park in Milan, the Villa Borghese gardens or in the Villa Ada Park or Botanical Garden in Rome, you can relax in both cities: this is the perfect option to forget your daily problems and all the stress of everyday life. In this category both cities tie.

But what other things stand out in the tourist destinations? For example, the festivals. While the prestigious International Rome Film Festival has awarded great actors such as Sean Connery, Sophia Loren and Al Pacino, Milan will win in this category: the famous Fashion Week turns Milan into the most important city for 7 whole days where the most famous designers show their new collections. Victory for Milan!

The list of comparisons can be endless. Which is better? Why don’t you discover it for yourself? You can start by visiting Milan. Rent Apartments in Milan and enjoy a comfortable stay in Italy!
