Milan the fashion capital of Italy with its imposing Cathedral and world famous La Scala Opera house is home to EXPO 2015 from May until the end of October with a focus upon feeding the planet, energy for Life.

 

As well as being one of the fashion capitals of the world, Milan is the business centre of Italy, and indeed arguably seen by many Italian's as the heart of their country. As well as designer boutiques, the streets are lined with lively bars and restaurants, traditional churches, the museums of the Castello Sforzesco and the relaxing and luxurious spas. Football enthusiasts will revel in being able to catch an AC Milan game or have a tour of the football ground, which is home to this world renowned club. Idroscalo, the cities man-made lake, is a great place to relax with the family, with leisurely walking and cycling routes as well as playgrounds and pedalos.

 

Calmer waters flow around Italy's lakes, where the tree-clad mountains tumble sheer into clear blue waters. Once the traditional summer refuge for Europe's aristocracy, these lakeshores are home to pillared palaces of breath-taking grace and beauty, built in the heyday of classical values and cultured living.
