In many ways the most modern of Italian cities, Milan is a busy, elegant metropolis with an impressive list of grand palaces, fine churches, and important museums.
Start off your visit on the 31st (Tue): shop like a local with Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, take in the spiritual surroundings of Duomo di Milano, then don't miss a visit to Piazza del Duomo, and finally step into the grandiose world of Castello Sforzesco. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: steep yourself in history at Il Cenacolo and then get engrossed in the history at Museo Egizio.

To see maps, photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Milan online trip itinerary builder.
