Milan - A Taste of the North
Arrive in Milan, the center of the fashion world and a city that is filled with modern life and gothic character. You are met at the airport by a private transfer and taken to your charming accommodation near the acclaimed Duomo. The Sforza Castle stretches across the city walls, built in the 15th century, and adds a dramatic sense of antiquity to what is often considered the industrial capital of the north. In the afternoon you can settle into the city with an espresso while overlooking the Piazza Duomo where the textured Cathedral stands.
The Milan Cathedral is a sensational work of gothic architecture built between the 14th and 16th centuries, and made of pink Candoglia marble with a pearled façade. When you walk beside the basilica you can see the 135 spires rising like a crown. The interior is as impressive with stained glass windows said to be the largest of any in the church worldwide and which add a glittering light to the imposing marbled columns and polished grounds. In the evening you can enjoy a delightful meal in one of the exceptional gourmet restaurants found in the city.
