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.

The richest hunting ground is the boutiques of the 'golden quadrangle' or 'quadrilatero d'oro' centring around Via Monte Napoleone, but don't miss department stores such as Coin and La Rinascente. There are shuttle buses to out of town outlets such as Serravalle, Vicolungo and Fox Town (the last is just over the border in Switzerland).
