In many ways the most modern of Italian cities, Milan is a busy, elegant metropolis with an impressive list of grand palaces, fine churches, and important museums.
Head to Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and Mercato Rionalefor some retail therapy. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Chiesa di San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore and Eremo di S. Caterina del Sasso. Get out of town with these interesting Milan side-trips: Brescia Castle (in Brescia), Cathedral of Cremona (in Cremona) and Certosa di Pavia (in Certosa di Pavia). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 7th (Tue) at Acquaworld. There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Castello di Gropparello, take in the spiritual surroundings of Duomo di Milano, wander the streets of Borgo Castell'Arquato, and enjoy the sand and surf at Riva Bianca Beach.

A city of technology and industry, Turin is in northwestern Italy, a one-hour drive from the French border and slightly more than that from the Mediterranean Sea.
Step off the beaten path and head to Castello e Parco di Masino and Ricetto di Candelo. For shopping fun, head to Mercato Centrale Torino or I Sapori del Piemonte. Get out of town with these interesting Turin side-trips: Castello di Issogne (in Issogne), Santuario di Oropa (in Oropa) and Castello di Verres (in Verres).
