What you'll do

In Milan, the city that needs no introduction, you’ll get, well... a pretty great introduction! Think of it as a crash course in all things Milanese from your knowledgeable host, from learning how to navigate the city’s network of buses and trams to discovering the best local haunts for sunset aperitivo and a perfectly prepared risotto. You’ll weave through the backstreets of the city’s central districts, making mental notes of where to stop off again tomorrow, and even squeeze in some sightseeing – landmarks like Sforza Castle and Duomo di Milano cathedral are along the way! When you’re feeling snacky, grab an opportunity to pop into a cafe and ask your host any questions you might have over an extra-strong espresso.

Where you’ll go

Buckle up for a masterclass in Milan starting in the city’s famous most-central districts – Centro Storico and Brera – then moving two miles south to Navigli. Why? If you can find your footing in the fast-paced city center’s tangled, tightly-packed alleyways with cobbled cafes, gorgeous galleries and Renaissance buildings around every corner, then hop on the tram to the stylish Navigli neighborhood’s buzzing aperitivo bars and graffiti-lined backstreets crawling with incredibly well-heeled locals, you’ll be an honorary Milanese in no time. Along the way, you’ll also get a lesson or two in hunting down the top shopping spots (the opulent Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the oldest mall in Italy, is a good place to start).
