Holidays To Southern Milan
When you stay south of downtown, you’ll be close to all the gorgeous fashion design houses, art galleries and entertainment that define Milan, while being ridiculously close to a sprawling nature reserve south of the city limits—win, win. Snag some smashing Southern Milan deals and pack your hiking boots and runway finest.
Things to Do in Southern Milan
Located in Northern Italy, Milan is just a day trip away from the Italian Alps to the north and even closer to Parco Agricolo Sud Milano. If you want to start with a romp through the Italian countryside, pick up one of our Southern Milan car hire options and drive southwest till you come to Chiaravalle Abbey, built during the 12th century. Back in Milan, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II—a historic shopping mall—centres the city and sets the tone for what Southern Milan holidays are all about…glitz, glam and goodies. Go for a nice haul or check out the amazing architecture. Within walking distance of the Galleria, your holiday stomping grounds await at Milan Cathedral (a.k.a. Il Duomo), which has been standing tall since it was rebuilt during the late 14th century. Even though Castello Sforzesco is north of the city centre, it’s worth the trip—as castles usually are!
Shopping, Dining & Nightlife
There are so many famous fashion houses in this metropolis, you’ll be glad you saved for the splurge by booking one of Wotif’s Southern Milan holiday packages. From Armani to Zanotti, the streets of Milan are lined with flagship boutiques and design studios, especially in the Fashion District on the west side of the city centre. Wanna keep saving those holiday funds? There’s also heaps of outlet malls, so shop till you drop.
After visiting da Vinci’s “The Last Supper” at the Basilica di Santa Maria delle Grazie, get ready to stuff your face with as many suppers as you can eat. Consider it cultural immersion to dip your fork and spoon into some of the region’s favourite cuisines, like ravioli and other rich pasta dishes (of course!), creamy risotto, and pesto galore. Until you’ve eaten your weight in olive oil, you aren’t ready to go home.
Zona Tortona is than a street where you can find posh shoes and today’s hottest designers. It comes alive at night…in a decidedly chill fashion. In this former industrial district, you’ll find factories and warehouses converted to modern hotels, studio boutiques and cafes and bars. To add vintage Bohemian vibes to your getaway, check out the nightlife in Porta Ticinese right on the river. Think drinks with waterfront views and live street music. Take us with you!
