Milan, Italy’s financial and fashion capital is only for city lovers but its surrounding regions will delight any nature lover or history buff. Milan is Lombardy's capital. It does have avenue after avenue of what we consider boring 19th-century apartment buildings. But tucked away on the south side of town are three great Romanesque churches: Sant'Ambrogio, Sant'Eustorgio and San Lorenzo Maggiore. The Sforza Castle an authentic 15th-century fortress and its museums are impressive.

The Brera is Milan's official museum; among its offerings are Tintoretto's haunting "Finding of the Body of St. Mark," Mantegna's awesomely foreshortened "Dead Christ," Bellini's touching "Piet," and Piero della Francesca's somber "Madonna with Saints and Angels." Smaller, quieter and far more intimate is the Poldi Pezzoli Museum, just down the street from the Galleria and La Scala. And of course there is Santa Maria delle Grazie, the church whose refectory holds Leonardo's fresco of the most famous supper of all. All visitors to Milan visit the extravagant gothic cathedral, but not all of them know that a walk on the roof is one of life's most unforgettable moments. Milan offers few must see sights with a wicked night life and high fashion shopping.

What we, at CustomHolidays recommend is that you don’t ignore this city’s surroundings. A few hours from Milan are some of most picturesque lakes, those of Como, Maggiore and Isola. These offer you amazing views of the snowcapped Alps while you stand on their tranquil blue shores surrounded by colourful blooms. A magical combination of lush Mediterranean foliage and snowy alpine peaks. The shores of the Lakes are lined with exquisite and aristocratic villas and gardens. Lake Maggiore runs into Switzerland, which means a ride on the lake takes you across the Swiss border. It also has a few islands worth visiting and offers charming stay options. Lake Como offers the charming villages of Bellagio, Varenna, and Tremezzo to explore and one lush green Island that houses two churches. A bit farther east off Como is Lake Isola, which is much smaller than Como but just as spectacular, with a darling village occupying its tiny island. This is the home of Franciacorta, some of Italy's most illustrious wines.

Around Milan is Stelvio National Park, an extraordinary land composed of glaciers, valleys, woodland and waterfalls and a natural habitat for animals at risk of extinction, such as the ibex and brown bear. We can help you plan a day trip from Milan to any of these natural marvels or stay there and make Milan a day trip. The choice is yours, and we assure you the trip will be memorable.
