Italy Trip Itineraries
Milan: First Time Visit
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... Read More
Our first Italian vacation
We have been married for 16 years, and never got the opportunity to travel. We are trying to make the best of the 10 days we have! The list is extensive and very busy but we'll try to take it easy. If we don't see everything, that's ok. As long as we get to enjoy the cultural differences and the sights we've seen.
As an amateur photographer, I look forward to capturing some great images that we'll cherish for a long time! read more about Our first Italian vacation... Read More
