Milan is a city of sophistication, and it emanates from its fashion, profound historical roots, and remarkable medieval city center. Your flight will land at Malpensa Airport where your private transfer will await your arrival. At the heart of the city rises an impressive Gothic cathedral that harkens back to the power and beauty of the city’s past. The structure was erected in the 14th-century and includes 135 spires adorned with 3,400 marble statues. The display of wealth and prestige glows from the stained-glass windows, the largest of any church in the world.
The aroma of fresh espresso drifts from the cafes that border the piazza. You and your partner will have a chance to indulge in the romance of the city tucked into the tranquil pockets that are decorated with celebrated art and architecture. In the evening, you will take a romantic stroll in the Navigli, a neighborhood shaped by two of the three remaining canals that helped Milan grow to greatness. The two canals converge at the old basin, which was once the port of Milan.
The tranquil ambiance will give way to music that spills out of the twinkling cafes. Artists have decorated the facades that overlook the waterways and locals fill the bars and enjoy the refreshing evening air. You and your partner can walk along the former towpaths, on which horses and oxen once pulled barges along the canals. Umbrellas hover over the café tables that line the walkways, and you will take your seat at a chic restaurant that combines a festive atmosphere with delectable cuisine and a reputation for pampering its patrons.
