Trip Itinerary

Day 1 : UK – Milan
Arrive at Milan Malpensa Airport and transfer to your chosen hotel in the city centre. Don’t waste any time before hitting the streets and piazzas of Milan to enjoy your first meal at one of the many restaurants.
Day 2 : A night at the opera
Milan is famous for being Italy’s fashion capital, shop till you drop at one of the world’s first shopping malls, Galleria Vittoria Emanuele II. The elegant four story arcade first opened in 1867 and is packed full of designer stores from Gucci to Versace. If the price tags are slightly out of your budget you can still enjoy a morning of window shopping.

Spend the afternoon on a tour of La Scala Opera House museum (€7 per adult approx) learning about the theatre’s history and admiring musical instruments dedicated to Italian composers. Finish off the day with an elegant evening watching a traditional opera performance.
Day 3 : Milan

After a night at the opera, there is another full day to explore Milan and no trip would be complete without a visit to see "The Last Supper", take the footsteps of Leonardo tour and find out more about this fascinating city and see the unique sights it has to offer.

In the evening, talk a stroll around I Navigli, which are a system of interconnected canals in and around Milan. The best time to visit is in the evening as there are lots of bars and restaurants to visit in the area for your final meal in Milan.
