Milan is a city in northern Italy, the capital of Lombardy, and the second-most populous city in Italy after Rome. I did a cheeky weekend getaway with one of my best girls to Milian a few years ago.
We arrived in Milan on a Friday ready for the weekend using Alitalia airlines. This airline was good because it allowed us to purchases cheaper tickets – being under 27 at the time. Worth having a look at their deals.
The hotel we stayed in was called Glam Milano and was pretty decent for the two nights we stayed in Milian. Below I have noted a few things you can get done in a weekend away in Italy, Milan.
During the day we went to a beautiful park, called Sempione Park. I fell in love!
My friend suggested heading over for a drink and some food. Terrazza Boscolo is up on a roof terrace. Here you will be able to feel the wind in your hair and capture a view of the famous Milan Cathedral.
We were welcomed with a warm welcome and friendly service. Grab yourself an Aperol spritz and tuck into a few canapes.

Head over to the largest science museum in Italy. Here you will see so much art.

Milan Cathedral is the cathedral church of Milan, Lombardy, Italy. Dedicated to the Nativity of St Mary, it is the seat of the Archbishop of Milan, currently Archbishop Mario Delpini. The cathedral took nearly six centuries to complete!!

6. Take a Trip to Lake Como x
Lake Como is in Northern Italy’s Lombardy region, it’s an upscale resort area known for dramatic scenery. It’s about two hours drive from Milan and is worth going for a late dinner.
