MILAN NOT TO BE MISSED, BETWEEN ART AND SHOPPING
The best time to visit Milan, if you love art and shopping, is probably January, during the winter sales that usually start on January 6th. At that time, in fact, there are not many tourists in Milan and you can also enjoy at leisure the many artistic and cultural proposals that this city has to offer.
DAY 1 : CLASSICAL MILAN
Arrival in Milan in the morning and guided tour of the historic centre, starting with Piazza Duomo, whose name celebrates the most emblematic monument of the city, the Cathedral. Admire its splendour with the many spires and Gothic statues, the most famous of which is the ‘Madunina’, considered the patron saint of Milan, a golden statue that stands on the highest spire of the cathedral.
You will continue the visit with the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, an elegant shopping and cafe area, until you reach the famous ‘Teatro alla Scala’, whose museum contains precious testimonies of numerous artists and musical composers.
