Milan

Milan is a city that can walk the walk as well as talk the talk. Known for its affluent ties to fashion thanks to the likes of Prada and Valentino being housed here, this Italian wonder is as beautiful as it is historic. Brimming with luxury and magnifying glamour, this holiday destination is a must for all.

Fashion is at Milan’s core and this is evident in the city’s expertly-designed five-star hotels. Many come with custom-made furniture, elegant interiors and phenomenal spas and fitness centres offering you everything you could possible desire during your Italian stay. Oh, and let’s not forget the abundance of Michelin-starred and well-loved restaurants and bars that are housed in many of them too. 

The city also has plenty of dining destinations outside of its hotels that are sure to satisfy your appetite. From traditional pizzas and pastas to Japanese and other international cuisine, every member of the party is sure to find something to tantalise their taste buds. If you’re a foodie and want to try something new, you’ve hit the jackpot.

Once you’ve had your fill it’s time to see the sights, and boy does Milan have some! From the many cathedrals and religious buildings dotted around to wonderful museums encompassing all that makes the area great, you’re sure to be soaking up tremendous history during your stay. Make sure to head to Santa Maria delle Grazie Church and see The Last Supper painting. You have to reserve months in advance for a fifteen-minute slot, so get in quick.

While you may not presume that lush greenery can be found here, you would be mistaken as Sempione Park and Parco Forlanini are top choices for visitors wanting to surround themselves in rich flora and fauna. Ideal if you want to take a break from shopping at Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II or sipping on a high-end cocktail in a designer bar, Milan really has something for everyone.
