High among the spires of Milan’s 500-year-old cathedral is a great spot to view Italy’s dynamic financial hub, the cathedral in its café-lined piazza lies at the heart of Milan. Close by is the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and the designer nirvana lies in the aptly named Quadrilatero (Golden Quadrilateral) where Prada, Valentino, Gucci and more await. Gaze at Leonardo’s Last Supper and be dazzled at La Scala, one of the world’s greatest opera houses. Milan also offers access to Verona, with its Roman arena and romantic associations with Romeo and Juliet. To the north of Milan lies Lakes Como, Lugano and Maggiore, nestled at the foot of the Italian Alps. Sip wine, stroll beside the palazzi of the rich and famous, and share the high-flyers’ million-dollar views.
Visit Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece ‘The Last Supper’ in the refectory of the 15th century Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie.
The Spring/Summer event is held in February-March and the Autumn/ Winter event is held in September-October of each year. Milan is one long catwalk for the elegant and sophisticated, and you can join them in the restaurants and clubs buzzing with attitude and glamour.
On the roof of the cathedral, these have a surface of 8,000 m2 which is covered by marble. Climb the 201 steps to the top, for a breath-taking view of the city. Admire magnificent arches, the 135 pinnacles of the cathedral, the numerous statues and breathe in the peaceful atmosphere over this constantly active city.
There is a system of canals through Milan and the oldest one, Naviglio Grande, is bustling with canal-side cafés, old-fashioned gelaterie (ice-cream shops), boutiques, artists of Milan, restaurants and old moored barges fitted out as bars.
This elegant shopping arcade is considered to be one of the main centres for shopping in Milan and is one of the most beautiful covered galleries in Europe.
A beautiful park that has a little something for everyone. The grounds are dappled with ponds and enchanting bridges; find a relaxing spot on the grass and watch the kids play on the playgrounds.
Especially for the fashionistas, at these markets you will find discounted clothes and shoes from the most prestigious Italian stylists.
The delightful town of Stresa on the shores is a former fishing village that grew to the wealthy haven it is today.
The road around the lake is narrow and the shore is dotted with lovely villages. Wander around Como town then head to the ‘Pearl of the Lake’, Bellagio. The town has a medieval layout of winding streets, cobbled stairways and grand historic buildings, as well as 19th century villas on the shoreline. Take some time to soak up the atmosphere and the fabulous panoramas over the lake with an Alpine backdrop.
Sirmione is built on a narrow peninsula jutting into Italy’s largest lake and is a lovely spot to have lunch in a trattoria overlooking the lake. Take a cruise out to Castello Scaligero, the imposing castle and Roman ruins, Grottoes of Catullus and the Rocca de Manerba.
