Spend your afternoon relaxing at Parco Sempione. Sprawling over an area of 38 hectares, Parco Sempione offers beautiful gardens, theatre, aquarium, and a tower from where you can admire the city of Milan. You will need an hour to explore the park area. After this, you can head to the gate of Milan called Porta Sempione. This gate was built on the request of Napoleon. Take 10 minutes’ drive to Cimitero Monumentale di Milano that will show you a series of artistic tombs. Next, catch a train or drive your car to Pinacoteca di Brera to see a huge collection of Italian paintings. You can also make a visit to various museums and art galleries that are located in the nearby area.


Head straight to the Milan Cathedral before the sun begins to set while spending 24 hours in Milan. This beautiful architectural masterpiece is known for the fact that it took almost 600 years to complete. Every corner of the cathedral deserves admiration and so, you should spend at least an hour here. At evening, you would love to treat yourself with some retail therapy and no place could be better than Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II for this. Located inside a glass-covered arcade, this huge shopping mall houses a number of retail stores, boutiques, coffeehouse, and galleries. Before you enjoy your dinner, don’t forget to watch an Italian Opera show at Teatro alla Scala, the neoclassical Opera House of Milan.
