Day 1 - Milan

Milan is the city of fashion and design, but also the economic capital of Italy. The tour of Milan can only start from Piazza del Duomo, the central square of the city. In addition to the marvellous medieval Cathedral, Piazza del Duomo hosts: the Royal Palace, the Novecento Museum, the statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II, the Archbishop's Palace and the Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery. Piazza della Scala is located in the famous Teatro alla Scala: the theatre inaugurated in 1778. We then continue towards the Arch of Peace, built in neoclassical style. Behind the Arch della Pace there is the Sempione park and then the Sforzesco Castle. Today it is home to an Art Gallery which preserves important works of art. The refectory of the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie houses Leonardo Da Vinci's Last Supper. The best way to end the tour of Milan is to have an aperitif in one of the most famous districts of the Milanese nightlife: the Navigli. It is the ancient port of Milan.

Day 2 - Lake Como

The most important centre is Como, the city that gives its name to the lake, with its valuable monuments, the charming old city and the suggestive views. Worth seeing are the cathedral, the "broletto" (ancient town hall) and the Tempio Voltiano, a 1927 neoclassical style building designed to celebrate the inventor of the battery, Alessandro Volta. Boats and hydrofoils are an excellent opportunity to admire the city and fully enjoy the beauty of the lake. The most suitable means to enjoy a wider view is the funicular that connects Como to Brunate, a mountain village that offers splendid views panoramic views of Lake Como. Equally impressive are the lakeside towns such as Cernobbio, home to large stately villas such as Villa d’Este and Villa Erba, and Bellagio, known as the "pearl of the lake" for its attractive scenery. The Comacina Island is also very fascinating, a small jewel surrounded by the waters of the lake, in which settlements dating back to the Roman era have been found.

Definitely worth visiting are the 15th century Duomo, the Visconteo Castle (dating back to 1360), the Civic museums, the ancient University, the Strada Nuova (one of the main streets of the city and the shopping street par excellence) and the covered bridge on the Ticino river. The Vernavola Park with its 35 hectares is the large city park, much loved by the people of Pavia and a suitable place for a bike ride surrounded by nature. Seven kilometres north of Pavia is the monastery of the Certosa, the imposing monastic complex dating back to 1396.
