On the 31st (Sun), take in the spiritual surroundings of Duomo di Milano, then get to know the fascinating history of Piazza del Duomo, then contemplate the long history of Il Cenacolo, and finally stroll the grounds of Monumental Cemetery. On the next day, test your team's savvy at La Casa Maledetta, then explore the historical opulence of Castello Sforzesco, then admire the striking features of Casa Ravizza, and finally don't miss a visit to Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.

Italy is a land of high fashion, fine art, exquisite architecture, luxury sports cars, outstanding cuisine--and an insatiable taste for "la dolce vita." It's also home to the greatest number of World Heritage Sites in the world, making it an ideal place for your next holiday. The country boasts a varied landscape of mountain ranges, alpine lakes, and coastal towns, so it's no wonder travelers often refer to it as the bel paese (beautiful country). With so many places to visit, visitors often have a difficult time planning their itinerary. The smaller villages each feature a distinct character and a blend of architecture, art, and cuisine. In the country, you'll find countless archeological sites dating back to Roman times and beyond.
