Milan

Fashion Capital of World

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.
Explore hidden gems such as Chiesa di San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore and Piazza Gae Aulenti. Change things up with these side-trips from Milan: Bergamo (La Citta Alta & Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Duomo di Milano, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, make a trip to Dialogo nel Buio, and admire the masterpieces at Pinacoteca di Brera.

City of Romance

Virtually unchanged for the last six centuries, Venice is actually a group of islands made famous by a series of canals, bridges, monuments, piazzas, and narrow pedestrian lanes.
