High culture near holiday lettings in Milan

Style simply oozes from Milan. The city swaggers with the confidence of a fashionista – it is one, after all. The Duomo – a jewel in the crown – stands firm above all except the shimmering modern skyscrapers that rise against the backdrop of the Italian Alps. Piazzas of espresso-drinkers unfold in a fast-moving montage of Gucci and Prada below, with rattling trams punctuating the beat as they wiggle around world-class museums like the Pinacoteca di Brera or iconic churches like UNESCO-tagged Saint Mary of the Graces. Milan holiday rentals are your ticket to this sleek and immersive metropolis this year.

History

History and culture near holiday homes in Milan

Milan has fascinating historic sites and cultural museums to explore on your trip. Holiday homes are available near places like the Sforzesco Castle, a medieval fortress with historical museums and artwork by the masters, and Teatro alla Scala, a lavish, 18th-century theatre with Italian opera and ballets, a museum and a music library.

Things to do

Sightseeing near Milanese holiday lettings

Milan's art isn't all Gucci and new suits. It's also historic. Head to the iconic Pinacoteca di Brera to sample the cream of the crop. Gasps will abound as you wander between the masterworks by Raphael, Hayez and Caravaggio. The Duomo has its own museum, not to mention some breathtaking viewing platforms behind the flying buttresses up on the roof. And then there's the Saint Mary of the Graces. The church itself is gorgeous, but it's the adjoining chapel, where Leonardo's The Last Supper resides, that really draws the crowds – get tickets early.

Activities

Things to do near holiday homes in Milan

You'll see what drives the Milanese when you start clinking prosecco in the cafe-bars of the Piazza del Duomo in the evening. You'll see it as you flash the credit card in the classy Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, dripping with diamonds and draped in big-name couture as you emerge. The semi-annual Fashion Week, in winter and autumn, is a great time to seek out Milan holiday rentals if you really want to get in with the in-crowd. Alternatively, a trip to nearby Lake Como means you can go looking for George Clooney without spending too many cents.

Weather

Spring brings more crowds to Milan holiday rentals, with May starting to warm up nicely. Summer is when al fresco dining and evening Spritzes are in full swing, with June to August having the hottest days and plenty of sunshine.

Milan – in the shadow of the Alps

Milan is one of the northernmost cities of Italy before the Alps begin in earnest. That makes it a real treat for nature buffs. Just a couple of hours' drive away, you'll find yourself weaving beneath hulking mountains with cascading forests of pine trees on their ridges. That's also where you'll discover the wonderful Italian lakes. Starting with Como in the east and ranging all the way across to Lake Garda in the west, the whole region is ripe for hikers, windsurfers and mountain bikers.
