The Best of Milan in Two Days

Follow this suggested itinerary and see the highlights of Milan in two days.

Your itinerary includes the Museum of the Twentieth Century and of course, the largest church in Italy and the true gem of Milan - Duomo di Milano. Next, visit Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery and La Scala Theatre, probably the most famous opera and ballet theatre in the world.

Your second day starts at Brera Botanical Garden - although it is rather small, it is well worth a visit for its serene atmosphere. It boasts hundreds of species, including very exotic ones. Then, visit Brera Art Gallery and the 15th century Renaissance Sforza Castle, which now houses many interesting museums.

Relax in the Sempione Park and finish your day at the Church of St Maria delle Grazie - the home of Da Vinci's Last Supper. Don't forget to book your visit in advance if you want to see the famous mural!
