- The whole online booking is done at your own pace rather than at the arrival airport where you are likely to be accompanied by a tired partner and a selection of tired and emotional youngsters

An exhilarating destination of ‘old’ meeting ‘new’, cosmopolitan Milan has something to offer everyone no matter how diverse his/her interests.

The landscape of northern Italy’s most prosperous city is peppered with shiny, vertiginous skyscrapers, a sign of the power and influence of Milan’s world leading fashion houses like Dolce and Gabbana, Versace, Armani and many more.

Old Milan pays testament to a past where prosperity was in constant supply and where to celebrate such flourishing times palaces and squares were built in abundance. The highly decorative fifteenth century Castello Sforzesco was once a fortified family residence and now offers a number of museums and exhibitions.

The Piazza del Duomo the location of the world’s oldest shopping centre and is aptly located in the heart of fashion designer country, Milan. The Via Montenapoleone (by the way) is Milan’s most famous shopping high street and where the ‘in-crowd’ get photographed by celebrity magazines for their designer label-hunting prowess.

Many visitors head to Old Milan for Da Vinci’s ‘The Last Supper’. This monumental painting painted on the back wall of a dining hall (with its newly aroused awareness caused by Dan Brown’s ‘The Da Vinci Code’) is found in Milan’s Dominican convent of Santa Maria della Grazie. The 18th century Brera Picture Gallery with its stunning rectangular courtyard and two storeys of columns and arches houses one of Italy’s most important Lombard and Venetian School painting collections. Nearby, the Museo Poldi-Pezzoli contains a considerable collection of vintage jewellery and paintings.

When in Italy, go to the Opera. The place to visit in Milan is the Teatro alla Scala,
known alternatively as La Scala Theatre. With its extravagant architecture and rich interior it is considered by many to be the principle operatic arena in the world.

Popular tourist attractions in Milan are numerous and none so famous as the eleventh century Duomo di Milano. The world’s second largest Roman Catholic place of worship dominates the city and its Madonnina atop the tallest spire is said to be the most cherished of all public figures in Milan. With its many historical buildings dating back to the Middle Ages, the Piazza Mercanti sits below the domineering Duomo and offers a good spot to recover from your Duomo tower climb.

The Parco Sempione offers peaceful lakes and charming spots for a picnic. Within close proximity of the Castello Sforzesco, the park is an attraction in its own right with historical monuments situated at regular intervals.

Prepare to have your breath taken away at the impact of the sixteen strong columns of the Colonne di San Lorenzo, only surviving Roman creation in Milan, which dates back to the 2nd century. Other ancient monuments around Milan include the Amphitheatre and the thirteenth century Archi di Porto Nuova. The Royal Palace dating back to the 11th century is found within the city’s main focus of the vast Piazza del Duomo. A prominent location across the centuries, the Piazza del Duomo has produced recent findings that prove significant monuments like St Tecla and the Baptistery of St John of the Font existed here in the 4th century.

Some of the more charming spots in Milan are found close to or actually on the Navigli waterways. Originally engineered to transport marble into Milan for the Duomo project, the more picturesque bits are found at the Naviglio Grande and Naviglio Pavarese.

One of Milan’s strengths is its excellent transport network. With a claim to fame that it has the largest motorway structure in Italy, Milan is well placed for conducting a lot of business while attracting an easy flow of a considerable tourism market. The A4 is easily located at the Milan Ring Road, linking Turin, Venice and Verona, while the A1 provides ease of travel to and from Bologna, Rome and Florence. A popular tourist vessel from Milan is along the A8 and A9 to Switzerland and Lakes Maggiore and Como.

If your preferred choice of travel is the train, Milan’s main station, Milano Centrale never fails to connect you to much of Italy as well as Germany, France and Switzerland.

Bergamo

Bergamo is situated 5 kilometres from Milan’s Bergamo-Orio al Serio Airport. Divided in two, the city is made up of the Bergamo Alta and the Bergamo Bassa. While one is a fortified medieval city perched imposingly upon a hill, the other is new.

Much of the town’s activity is focussed in the fifteenth century Piazza Vecchia, was built at the time when Venice ruled Bergamo. The paintings at the eighteenth century Accademia Carrara are among the highlights of attractions within the magical old town. The works of Botticelli, Donatello, Bellini and Rubens blend in all too eagerly amongst the great pieces of this 18000 strong collection.


Pavia

A neighbour to Milan is that of the charming multiple church town of Pavia. With its fourteenth century castle, a sculpture and archaeology museum, this is generally found to be one of the more peaceful of tourist spots.


Lombardy

Lombardy is the region that gave birth to the Stradivarius. Situated in the north of Italy between the River Po valley and the Alps, Lombardy is not just a largely industrial area that is densely populated and miserable. A concerted effort at exploring the Lombardy landscape will uncover charming lakeside villages, Alpine scenery and medieval towns steeped in history and culture.

Scenic Bergamo and Mantova are full of small town charm and packed with artistic features and historic architecture, as does Lake Como with its magic and tranquillity.

Cremona is where the Stradivarius originates and attracts a considerable tourist base for its heritage, delicious cuisine and one of Europe’s favourite medieval squares.

Other appealing towns and villages that are saturated with character and charm in Lombardy include Pavia with its Romanesque churches and medieval Lodi offering a landscape littered with old castles and rivers.
