Milan, Lombard capital that stupefies for the emotions only it can offer, is a culture, modern, and lively city that is rich in beauty and artistic masterpieces.
The Duomo, or Cathedral, with its luminous, marble (from Candoglia) façade and late-Gothic architectonic style, is the monumental symbol for this metropolis in Northern Italy. From its heights, reaching to the feet of the famous Madonnina statue, visitors can enjoy a unique panoramic view dominated by the church’s 135 pinnacles pointing towards the sky and reigning over the entire city. Of great artistic importance is the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, where Leonardo da Vinci painted his breathtaking The Last Supper between 1495 and 1497 (This masterpiece can be admired as long as reservations are made in advance). For music lovers Piazza della Scala is the obligatory go-to point, where one will find one of the most important opera houses in the world: Teatro La Scala.
A few miles from Milan you will find Italy’s third biggest lake (Lake Como), thanks to its alluring landscape that has attracted artists, poets and celebrities for centuries.
From Milan to the Lakes, there are plenty of opportunities for fun and leisure, for a dynamic, funny holiday devoted to sports, wellness, culture or food and wine.
