A weekend in Milan is just enough time to get a taste of the Italian fashion capital’s hustle and bustle. Like Milan itself, you’ll find a mix of the traditional and the ultra-modern: some history at the Duomo; some fashion-spotting in the Quadrilatero district; some culture at the Pinacoteca di Brera and the Fondazione Prada, and—if you book ahead—at The Last Supper and the famed opera.
There are beautiful buildings and attractions aplenty, so your itinerary can be as packed as you like. Plus—this being Italy, after all—be sure to leave time to try some amazing restaurants and bars, combined with prime people-watching along the bustling canals of Navigli or a classic Milanese foodie emporium like Peck. Just make sure to dress your best if you want to fit in.
