Things to know about Milan

Milan has always been the economic and industrial capital of Italy, a modern and avant-garde city that provides evidence of a glorious past but meantime is already looking to the future. 
 
Visiting Milan is a unique eXPerience and there is a lot to see and do: from the history of art to the design and high fashion, up to the technology. Milan, in fact, can boast important historical sites: from the famous Duomo, overlooking the homonymous square (Piazza del Duomo), to the imposing Sforza Castle. But it is also the place where you can discover masterpieces of Italian art from the world famous paintings of the Last Supper to the Brera Art Gallery.
 
A visit to Milan, however, wouldn’t be complete without a shopping session - or even just a simple walk - in the Fashion District: a famous area throughout the world for its high-style boutiques and shops, where you can find all the best Italian and international brands. Moreover, from Milan you can easily reach some of the largest outlets in Italy, perfect places to buy branded products at affordable prices.
 
The Expo Milano 2015, which took place in the Lombardy capital in 2015, represented an extraordinary opportunity for growth and international visibility for the whole of Italy, and Milan was able to meet the challenge by adopting new facilities and services, still serving today of the city.
 
Milan, however, can also be the starting point for some interesting day trips: from the great lakes – the Como Lake with the enchanting Bellagio, the Maggiore Lake with the beautiful Borromean Islands, the Garda Lake with its gems or Lugano Lake with its alpine atmosphere - to the Dolomites and the Alps, characterized by a unique scenery. Not to mention the possibility to reach, in a few hours, amazing destinations such as Venice, Genoa and the Cinque Terre.

Boat cruise around the Lake Como and the stop over at Belligao.

The tour director made the trip very interesting and fun fact based. When I visit Milan again, I will definitely take this tour excursion again.

Wonderful day to Lake Como

This was a great day out from Milan especially as we got sunny weather to enjoy the amazing views! A comfortable ItalyXP coach left on time and our very pleasant and patient guide called Beatrice was informative and a great communicator (in both English and Spanish). After just one hour drive we reached Como where we had one hour to explore the town. Then it was onto a 2-hour ferry boat on Lake Como where the scenery is never boring, in fact it is breathtakingly lovely. We enjoyed shopping and dining in Bellagio, the jewel of Lake Como, where we had a two-hour stopover. Then after a 15-minute crossing by boat, we were whisked back to Milan again on our coach. We considered the experience to be great value for money. It just couldn't have been any better.

Back to the past

A great visit with the guide. Stories and anecdotes about the past uses of the people living at the Scala. The stage is very impressive... The rooms are so high and still so pure. We had the chance also to do the traditional Scala museum but also a temporary exhibition about Mutti. Top! I would recommand the experience to my friends!

The awesome scenery and natural beauty

A wonderful experience on the train. Only thing the time given in St Moritz was too short to de shopping as well as to enjoy the place. The train was definitely the highlight. A memorable trip.
