Milan has been the dynamo behind the country's economic development since the 1950s, as a hectic business and finance center. Today, one of the main reasons why visitors flock to the city is the Last Supper, the 15th-century mural by Leonardo da Vinci, adorning the refectory of the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie. Milan is also one of Europe's fashion capitals with the flagstores of several Italian luxury brands, as well as the prestigious Milano Moda Donna (Women's Fashion Week) that takes place every February and September. The World Expo of 2015 has also refreshened the city's make-up, prompting urban redevelopment in areas like Darsena, the district of canals, and the restoration of the Duomo. If you want to stay away from the crowds, try not to land the city during the main conventions like Salone del Mobile (April), and the technology meeting Smau (October), when hotel prices go up, restaurants and streets get crowded. Those who would like to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy the Milanese countryside could have a boat tour along the Navigli Canal, or have an Italian feast at Antica Trattoria del Gallo that has been attracting visitors to the nearby town of Gaggiano since 1870.
