More is More in Milano
Are you ready for Shopping, Sipping, Secret Places and Sailing in Milan? If so, then this is your trip!
Posh, Stylish, Fashionistas, you’ll appreciate the inclusions, as each experience is met with sophistication and elegance. Your journey begins at Milano Centrale (Milan’s main rail station, and Europe’s largest). From the onset you’ll begin to appreciate its breathtaking design by French architect Louis-Jules Bouchot. On your way to the many main attractions Milan has to offer, and when walking through the streets of this magnificent city, we won’t hurry – instead, we’ll stroll so you can appreciate all of your surrounds. Sitting outside at one of many cafes lining the streets and sipping an Italian espresso is just one thing to look forward to.
Your dynamic itinerary includes a visit to Milan’s Cathedral (Duomo di Milano). From the rooftop, you’ll witness panoramic views and the Alps on a clear day. Looking at Piazza Duomo from above is also a priceless experience. While in the area, you can stop by the local market in the Piazza Duomo to enjoy an arancini (risotto balls), which is a nice treat to try. When it comes to shopping, you’ll explore the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II (Italy’s oldest shopping center) – the architecture alone is a sight to behold. Don’t worry, Quadrilatero d’Oro is on your itinerary (luxury shopping, fashion houses, high-end fashion boutiques, antique shops and elegant cafes), along with the Brera neighborhood “Milanese Montmartre.” Your custom walking tour includes hidden gems and secret places along the Navigli (canals), where you’ll sip an aperitivo and stroll through the gardens of the Sforza Castle. For a break from the bustling city life, how’s a private tailor-made sailing tour on Lake Como, a night out at BVLGARI Lounge Bar, a private cooking class with a chef and time to enjoy the thermal water flows from Fonte di Bormio, sound? And that’s not all.
