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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Borgo Castell'Arquato and La Casa Maledetta. Venture out of the city with trips to Castello di Vigoleno (in Vigoleno), Duomo Di Piacenza (in Piacenza) and Orta San Giulio (Sacro Monte di Orta, Piazza Motta, &more). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Gallerie d’Italia, appreciate the history behind Arco della Pace, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Abbazia di Chiaravalle.
