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.
Get some historical perspective at Duomo di Milano and Il Cenacolo. Get a sense of the local culture at Castello Sforzesco and Piazza del Duomo. Venture out of the city with trips to Tremezzina (Villa Carlotta & Villa del Balbianello). It doesn't end there: admire the landmark architecture of Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.

Virtually unchanged for the last six centuries, Venice is actually a group of islands made famous by a series of canals, bridges, monuments, piazzas, and narrow pedestrian lanes.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Piazza San Marco and Doge's Palace. Your inner history buff will appreciate Basilica di San Marco and Peggy Guggenheim Collection. Change things up with these side-trips from Venice: Verona (Arena di Verona, Cappella dei Notai, & more). There's still lots to do: enjoy breathtaking views from St Mark's Campanile, snap pictures at Ponte di Rialto, contemplate the long history of Ponte dei Sospiri, and make a trip to Scala Contarini del Bovolo.
