Tours that include Milan
Filled with fabulous food, extraordinary architecture and an almost immeasurable number of activities and sights to see, Milan is a thriving metropolis of culture. The extraordinary history you can uncover in this city is enough to keep you busy for many holidays, but you won’t want to miss the other spectacular options available to you.
- Palazzo Reale
- Sforza Castle
- Fashion therapies
Allow yourself to be transfixed by the world-famous Duomo Cathedral, Palazzo Reale and the Sforza Castle. These architectural icons will fill you with awe, leaving you with an enviable cache of stories for your jealous family and friends back home.
If you time your visit well, you can involve yourself with one of the many festivals Milan has to offer. The Festival of Sant’Ambrogio, in mid-December, celebrates Milan’s patron saint, Saint Ambrose, filling the streets with an impressive fair full of a variety of stores, and often overlaps with the beginning of the opera season at Scala.
You could also catch the unique Milano Film Festival, an exhibition of contemporary short films spanning one of the widest ranges of experience and themes you are ever likely to see.
Of course, even the most incredible sight-seeing and cultural events need some downtime, and it is at these times when Milan really shines: fashion therapy and gelato breaks.
