Milan: the fashion capital and one of the most chic cities of the Ancient Continent


Milan is undoubtedly one of the most famous European capitals thanks to its historical-cultural offer and its tourist facilities. It offers a unique blend of old-world charm in the midst of the modern era, a wide choice of cultural activities and a rich heritage. In Milan the pace of life is fast and affluence is richly rewarded. Right at the center of this modern metropolis is the world-famous Duomo – an iconic Gothic cathedral that occupies the third place in Europe after the Church of San Pietro in Rome and that of Seville. It was built in 1386 and its roof is enriched with 135 spiers and 3,200 statues.


Throughout history, many fine artists have stayed here and left invaluable works, in particular Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci, whose famous painting “Il Cenacolo” (The Last Supper) is located in the convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie. With your English-speaking expert guide, you can discover all the masterpieces and secret sites of this wonderful city.


But it is fashion that goes hand in hand with Milan. At every corner of the street you can breathe all the Italian elegance. This city welcomes around 2 million tourists every year. The most famous fashion houses in Italy are based in Milan, which makes the city a fantastic place to shop, especially in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, the large shopping arcade built in 1867 in the shape of a cross, where you can find shops, bars and restaurants and more. The city is considered the Italian shopping capital, the Quadrilatero della Moda, between Via Montenapoleone, Via della Spiga, Corso Vittorio Emanuele II and Corso Como, is the Mecca for all fashionistas from all over the world which here find many luxury shop windows to admire. It is no coincidence that it is recognized all over the world as one of the fashion capitals with Fashion Week.


Gastronomy is an Italian delicacy and and even in Milan there is a wide variety of restaurants and culinary delights. One thing not to be missed is aperitif time! A Milanese tradition to meet up with friends, the aperitif is often accompanied by an appetizing buffet (sandwiches, croutons, cold cuts, cheeses, bruschetta, chips, all generally at a great price, including drink).


Discover the sublime natural beauty of the Como Lake


About 80 kilometers from Milan, between the provinces of Como and Lecco, is Lake Como, the third largest Italian lake, after Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore, and the deepest (410 meters). From its banks you can enjoy multiple and fascinating views: suggestive villages, splendid villas and luxuriant gardens await visitors in search of relaxation and culture in contact with nature.


Over the centuries, its magnificent landscape has enchanted artists and travelers, including the French writer Flaubert and the musicians Gioacchino Rossini and Giuseppe Verdi who found inspiration here for their famous works.

But still today it continues to attract celebrities from the international Jet-set who appreciate its beauty and the suggestive places that surround it.
