Italy Trip Itineraries

Milan: First Time Visit

Destination(s): Milan

Italy's frenetic capital of design, fashion and finance hosts a collection of must do's for the first time visitor: The Duomo, a Gothic masterpiece and one of the largest cathedrals in the world, took some five centuries to complete. Close by is the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, a Belle Epoque arcade and La Scala, the famous opera house. At the Pinacoteca di Brera, one of Italy's finest galleries, you can feast on Bellini, Caravaggio, Raphael, Tintoretto and Veronese. The city's most famous piece of art can be seen at Santa Maria delle Grazie ("Our Lady of Grace"), the famous church and Dominican convent, where Leonardo da Vinci's 'The Last Supper' is in the refectory of the convent. (Please remember that if you want to see Leonardo's Last Supper, you need to book in advance, because if you don't pre-purchase tickets, you have very little chance of being admitted to view the mural!) Finally for shopping, head for Quadrilatero d'Oro, the Golden Square, one of the world's great shopping areas. read more about Milan: First Time Visit

Peck

Peck

Francesco Peck a ham-seller from Prague set up shop in Milan in 1883. Some 25 years later he sold his shop to Eliseo Magnaghi who managed the store for nearly 50 years before selling it on to the Grazioli family in 1956. Today it is owned by the Stoppani brothers, who bought the store in 1970.

Similar in some ways to Fauchon in Paris or perhaps a mini version of Harrod's foodhall in London, for the Milanese however, this is foodie heaven. For hams and cheeses, for pastas and sauces, for conserves and preserves, for oils and vinegars, you won't know which way to look first!

Don't miss the basement, with its 5000 bottle wine-cellar!
