Medical tourism combines tourism with healthcare to generate a vigorously expanding economic sector capable of fueling new economic opportunities

  • for patients, who can benefit from the globalisation of healthcare and tourism to have increasingly easy access to specialised treatments, also in countries where they do not normally reside;
  • for doctors and clinics, who can promote themselves and their specialisations, increasing their patient numbers;
  • for the tourism industry, since it generates new non-seasonal demand that applies throughout the year.

Therapies sought after can be clustered into four areas:
Health: special care, surgery, detailed diagnoses, second opinions etc. about specific pathologies
Wellness: spa treatments, fitness, wellness and alternative medicine therapies
Beauty care: improving appearance through plastic and cosmetic surgery
Reproduction: fertility treatments and the practice of assisted reproduction.

Medical Tourism in numbers


The Stelline palace is a venerable Milanese orphanage that dates back to 1515.

The orphans were known as “little stars” (stelline), after the name of the convent of the order of the Benedictine Sisters of Holy Mary of the Star. The stelline lived here until 1971.

Situated in the centre of Milan, just 5 minutes walk from the Duomo, and now known as the Palazzo delle Stelline, the building belongs to the municipality and is used as a prestigious public venue for important international events. It is also home to the diplomatic office of the European Commission in Italy and a local office of the European Parliament.

Opposite the Palazzo delle Stelline is the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, home of Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper, considered one of the wonders of the world.
