One of the most glamorous cities in Italy, Milan is vibrant and fast-paced with a great cultural hub and is one of the best shopping destinations in the world. Located in northwest Italy in the Lombardy region, Milan has plenty of historical attractions such as the Duomo, the world’s largest Gothic cathedral and the internationally-famous La Scala Opera House. The Santa Maria della Grazie houses Leonardo Da Vinci's famous fresco, the Last Supper. While day time offers great sightseeing opportunities, it is at night that the city truly comes alive. Night clubs, operas, ballets and concerts promise to keep art aficionados busy and happy. Milan is also the mecca of fashion and offers top-end designer wear and the latest in accessories and footwear.
The Lake District of Italy is a must on any visit to Italy. Nestled against the foothills of the towering snow-clad Alps, the lake region is a tranquil oasis of beauty. Lake Como is the deepest and largest of Italy’s lakes. Surrounded by beautiful villas and resort villages, the area around the lake is popular for hiking, boat rides and water activities. The laid-back charm of Lake Orta has inspired poets and writers down the centuries and is considered to be one of the most romantic lakes in the world.
