Milan's fashionable and historic air lends itself perfectly for a cosmopolitan day trip from Lake Garda. You'll discover three of the city's highlights from the outside – including the famed Duomo, La Scala opera house and Sforza Castle – and spend the rest of the day exploring, shopping and sightseeing in your own time.
You'll set off towards the Italian metropolis and capital of the north in the morning where its sights all await. You'll start off at the 15th-century Sforza Castle, with its iconic red-brick exterior. The rest of the tour will be dedicated to two other of Milan's must-sees. Of course, one is the Duomo and the atmospheric piazza before it and La Scala opera house, one of the most respected in the world.
You can then use your free time in Milan to go inside these famous monuments, or head for a spot of shopping at the elegant Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. And dip into local eateries, delis, gelaterias and espresso houses for a taste of Milan before heading back to Lake Garda.
