The pace of life in Milan, Lombardy’s capital seems very un-Italian but the city’s combination of technology, fashion and business is indisputably a unique mix which makes this a vibrant destination. The famous opera house of La Scala and the Cenacolo or Last Supper of Da Vinci are the city’s high points, not to mention the boutiques of Via Montenapoleone. Why not pause from shopping to take coffee in the shadow of the Gothic cathedral? Within half an hour’s drive the Orobic Alps beckon, offering great skiing, and to the west and east of Milan, the great lakes of Como, Maggiore and Garda promise magnificent scenery and elegant self catering villas, farmhouses and apartments, not to mention excellent local wines and distinctive cuisine (rice is the staple here rather than pasta).
