Cheap flights to Milan

If it’s style and sophistication you’re after then look no further than Milan; Italy’s largest city has it in abundance.  A fantastic holiday and city break option all year round, Milan is a city that never slows down. Whether you come for a bit of sightseeing, world-class shopping, or to sample the varied nightlife, you won’t go home disappointed.

There is over two and a half thousand year’s worth of history in this city, so you self-confessed culture vultures out there are in for a treat. If you like your cathedrals Gothic, your castles Renaissance and your palaces Neoclassical then look no further. Even the shopping comes with a historical twist in the form of the 19th century Galleria Vittorio Emanuele arcade. Now that is what we call shopping in style. And this is of course the real reason you came to Milan isn’t it? If you want to satisfy that shopping bug further, then head down to the picturesque Brera district with its winding streets, flower-draped balconies and expensive little boutique stores. Or, for an even more upmarket experience, then head to the Quadrilatero d’Oro, or Gold Quarter to you and me.

Milan is a city of fine galleries and museums and one of the best is the Archaeological Museum (Civico Museo Archeologico). This interactive and educational venue is a great family attraction and this month offers the last chance to catch an exhibition of Egyptian artefacts before it closes for reorganisation. The finds include shabtis (small inscribed figures), statues and bronzes and the show charts ancient Egyptian civilisation through its long history.

The public gardens near Porta Venezia are home to Milan's annual horticultural show, now in its 22nd year. Stalls and displays of plants take over the whole park in a relaxing event for the whole family. From Friday 5 to Sunday 7 May, 9.30 to 7pm each day. orticola.org.

April 2017
April usually brings fine weather to northern Italy and it's a great time to plan a trip to the lakes. Of the three main stretches of water, Lago Maggiore, on the southern side of the Alps and partly in Switzerland, is easily accessible from Milan by train or motorway. Visitors flock to the picturesque towns of Baveno, Stresa and Verbania, but the best way to appreciate the spectacular scenery is a boat trip to the Borromean islands. Of these, Isola Madre has a palace and botanical gardens; Isola Bella a palace, Italianate gardens a fishing village; and Isola dei Pescatori a timeless village, restaurants and boutiques. On your island hop look out for the bizarre tree covered islet, the Scoglio della Malghera. www.navigazionelaghi.it
