Change things up with these side-trips from Milan: Sentiero del Viandante (in Varenna) and Verona (Casa di Giulietta, Via Mazzini, &more). Next up on the itinerary: pause for some serene contemplation at Duomo di Milano, stop by Unique Home Italia, and test your team's savvy at La Casa Maledetta.

For other places to visit, photos, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Milan online day trip planner.
