Milan in a Weekend

You could be forgiven for comparing Milan unfavourably with one of its fashion models - great bones (period art combined with postmodern architecture) but no substance. You would be wrong. This stylish city has a soul, and if you plan carefully, you can discover it in a weekend. The secret is to book as much as possible before you leave.

Start by heading to the Duomo, one of the world's biggest cathedrals. Climb or take the lift to the roof terrace for panoramic views of Milan. After you’ve walked from the Duomo through the stylish Galleria Vittorio Emanuele and seen the opulent Teatro alla Scala, stop for refreshments at the lively Bar Brera. Then, it's on to the wonderful Pinacoteca di Brera, where you will find artistic treasures by Mantegna, Raphael, Goya, Caravaggio, Rembrandt, and Piero della Francesca, before watching the sunset with an aperitif from the open-air Il Bar on the Rinascente’s seventh floor.

Day two starts with a visit to the convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie to see Leonardo da Vinci's fresco of The Last Supper. Book your ticket with your flight, as viewing is extremely limited. You will find archaeological treasures galore in Castello Sforzesco at Piazza Castello, including a ceiling fresco by da Vinci and Michelangelo's last, unfinished sculpture of Jesus and Mary. Stop for venison prosciutto at Bar Della Crocetta, and, if you're visiting during the football season, catch Sunday training at San Siro stadium.
