An extraordinary setting
Milan is a city which offers numerous day-trip opportunities. The only real problem will be deciding which to
choose from the historic monuments, museums, lakes, mountains, art cities and gastronomic tours.
Just outside the city is Lake Como, with its unforgettable panorama. The ancient city of Bergamo is also worth
a visit, concealing a romantic heart behind high medieval walls. Don't forget the Charterhouse of Pavia, nor
Vigevano, which is home to what many consider Italy's most beautiful piazza.
Milan is also ideally situated for visiting Italy's most famous tourist destinations like Portofino, Pisa, Venice,
Verona, Florence and Mantua. All can be easily reached in less than 3 hours.
Traditionally a favoured spot of writers and artists, today this is a leading destination for the stars of
stage and screen. A fascinating atmosphere combines beautiful countryside with a rich historic and artistic culture.
The High City is the ancient part of Bergamo, characterised by tiny winding streets filled with Renaissance
palaces, medieval monuments and churches full of rich artistic treasure. Excellent restaurants and shops
are housed in the city's historic buildings.
Certosa di Pavia
This monastic complex dates back to 1386 and is a true masterpiece of Gothic-Renaissance architecture.
Inside the church are paintings from the leading Italian artists of the day, while the façade is one of
the most beautiful and unexpected in the country. The nearby city of Pavia has a delightful medieval
and Renaissance quarter and one of Europe's oldest universities.
The city has an extraordinarily rich historic and artistic heritage. The Visconte-Sforza castle and
piazza are a perfect model of fifteenth century urban architecture, among the most beautiful in Italy.
